Solved Prevent Registered Users creating topics

Post by Guardian-Angel on June 22nd 2014, 4:52 am

Hi everyone

Can I prevent registered users from creating topics? I would like to limit that to mod's/admin only.

Thanks

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Categories & Forums
Go through each forum's permissions (advanced mode) and uncheck the boxes for the groups you do not want to open/start a topic.

Thank you. Can this be set when originally creating a new Category? Perhaps I never noticed it could be done at that time, or do I go back once created and set permissions? I will ensure in the future as this will be time consuming.

You can set them when you create a new forum. For old forums, you have to modify the permissions.
