Each article of this site can have a forum attached to it. The discussion forums are automatically managed by SPIP. They are directly related to the editorial content of the site so one can open an independent forum for each article, each section and each news item.
By default, SPIP forums are moderated after publication (afterward moderation). This means that each user?s message is published immediately. On the other hand, the site administrators have an interface which enables them to read the messages posted in last week and, if necessary, to remove them.
Some SPAM messages have been post on gmapdoc forums. Thus, on September 15, 2006, the behaviour of the forums was changed : the operation mode of public forums is now pre-moderation (contributions will be shown only after validation by administrators).
