Hello,

when replying in a topic, only by uploading an image (without text), the post is immediately published and shows an "unapproved" notification. 

How can we fix  this so that either it allows you to post it without the "unapproved" notice, or it shows the default message
"Please enter a value for 'Please enter your post'."

Thank you,
Panos

I notice that in your forum, right here, everything works just fine: I cannot post my entry if it only contains an attached image and nothing else

Hi,

Can you tell us if you have the source code or free edition?

Hello Idrazic,

We use the free edition offered directly in the http://www.mono-software.com/Downloads/#MonoX page.
Generally we haven't done any backend hacks on code. If you find it convenient I could paste the page code.

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Sorry to say this, but I can only offer you to upgrade MonoX as neither the current release nor nightly has this issue.

Regards,
Igor

So this is some functionality that has been removed from recent MonoX editions?

cause the daily tasks notification e-mail has this items at separate category (items to approve), whereas items marked as spam are at separate category

to clarify the situation, the post isn't published, only the author of the post sees it appearing, but stamped with the waiting approval. When the admin/moderator approves the item it gets published

the thing is that we'd like to either
- have a policy that doesn't allow posts without text and just attachments (and show user an informative message if they try to post empty message)
- or allow such posts without flagging them as for-approval (many of our users reply to topics by attaching a saved ClipFlair activity file and they don't need to say something in the post)

I wonder if there's some configuration option in web.config that we've accidentally turned on that does the current behaviour

Can you test something for me, does the issue occur with regular non-admin users?

Hello again!

It seems that the issue occurs only for admins and, weirdly, for eventeditors as well. 
(we weren;t aware of this earlier)
