Solved How do I close a forum, with a message on the front?

Post by Kynata on January 10th 2014, 12:09 am

Similar to leaving a message as the forum is under construction, can that be done if you close/disable the forum? If so, how do I do this?

If not, is there a way to increase the number of days in which a forum is under co?

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Configuration
Forum in construction: Yes
Then a box should appear to set the days.
There should be a text editor below this to enter a message.

Thank you, but I already know this. I was hoping that there was a larger amount of days in which the forum can stay under construction.

Enter the number of days in the box that appears when you check the yes box.

It only allows me to select from 1-7 days.

Have you tried using the holiday option and adding a message to the homepage message?

Yes, of course. Currently I've left a message, once I set up the Under co. feature. But it only lasts for 7 days, and I need more than that. I want to be able to either set up the days I want.

For the Holiday feature, it doesnt change anything other than disallowing members to register.

Right now that is the only option. You will have to log in and reset the days.
