how to lock your forum?

Post by ginger. on January 12th 2013, 3:24 pm

well, i've been searching, but i didn't find any useful answer. so, the thing is:
my forum will be under a maintenance for a few days and i want to that only admins could log on. and the other members would just see a blank page with text and so on. and so they couldn't see any graphics! is there any code for that?

You can do that in the Administration panel!

Admin panel > General tab > Configuration > "Forum in construction option > Set to yes.
