I'm using bbPress (Version 2.5.3) with the plugin bbPress Moderation (Version 1.8.3) on WordPress 3.8.1.

After a user submits a new topic for moderation, the forum shows up again without the new question, and with no explanation that the question is awaiting moderation. Can I redirect the user to another URL with an explanation?

Modify the file "form-topic.php" (located in "/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/form-topic.php"):

32  <form id="new-post" name="new-post" method="post" 
    action="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">

Change it to:

32  <form id="new-post" name="new-post" method="post" 
    action="<?php echo the_permalink() . "?redirect_to=/question-awaiting-moderation/"; ?>">

Upload this modified file to: "/wp-content/themes/YOUR_THEME/bbpress/form-topic.php"

Do the same for the replies if you are moderating those (form-reply.php).
