kk. so go to the admin control panel
then go to general,
configuration,
then find "forum in construction". Set it to "yes". If you want, you can press "customize" next to it, and change the message it will say when anyone (except for administrators) try to get on.

Is this what you mean?

I saw ur post on shutting down the site on ur forum, and u can also give complete control of the forum to someone...

so go to the admin control panel
then go to general,
configuration,
then find "forum in construction". Set it to "yes". If you want, you can press "customize" next to it, and change the message it will say when anyone (except for administrators) try to get on.

Or you can try this:
