In progress Blocking members from making a new thread.

Post by Hero Skillet on July 28th 2012, 11:09 pm

I am having a problem with members posting in our news and announcements section on the forums and want to stop them from making new threads. But there is one problem, we want to allow them to post in threads created by staff but do not want them to create a new thread. I looked at the permissions but it only allows you to stop them from even posting at all. Is there anyway around this?

I'm not sure where this is at? I went under users & groups and found nothing there? I am always in advanced mode so can you explain more?
