Solved How to start a section where they can reply, but not start new topics?

Post by Metina on June 12th 2010, 1:55 pm

Hiya,

I am trying to put together a FAQ section on the topic of my forum so people can stop asking the same newbie questions over and over. I want folks to be able to reply to the topics that we start, but not start new topics themselves. I was reading throught the permissions section, but don't see if this is possible.

Is it?

Hello Metina,

This is entirely possible. Go to the Administration Panel and edit the forum you want to have the permissions you want. Then, you want to set your permissions for that forum as:

Reply to a message: Check for Members
Open a topic: Uncheck for Guests and Members

This will allow your members to reply but not open up a topic. Very Happy

Regards,

Base

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
