Track and approve requests
After requesting rights for specific posts inside the 'Rights management' tab you will be able to monitor each post if it is approved or not. If the owner of the post, responds positively, indicating their agreement, we track the request in EmbedSocial, and the status of the request is changed from "Pending" to "Approved."
Once the post is approved, you can show it on your widget and display the widget on your website.
Display the approved posts on your widget
Now you can create a widget from your added hashtag and inside the widget navigate to the 'Filter' panel. Enable the option "Only posts that have approved rights" to display only the approved posts in your widget.
