Post by King Duck on July 28th 2010, 10:16 pm

Is there a way to mute aka prevent a certain person from posting on the forums, but they can view the post?

You can create a group and then give it the permissions so that the group can view posts but cannot reply.

ACP > Users and Groups > Create new group > Add members

then, ACP > General > forums and categories > Edit the categories so that group cannot reply.

It is too much of a hassle to go into every category to edit them. Is there a option where you can mute the person for all forums?

You can make the changes to one of the forums. Then you can go to the other forums and find the "copy forum permissions" and change it to the forum that has the permissions you want.

Darn, that is really lame. Too much of a hassle to go to every forum to change the option. Guess they got something new to improve on lol

Though you can suggest them, I think it has been already suggested from the past, check on the suggestion section.

No point. If it was already suggested and nothing was done, then why bother?

Thats for you to decide, whether you want to vote or not.

How long or how vote does a thread need before it goes through?

There is nothing preset, but if there is a huge vote for a certain thread it could help.
