Solved how can I lock a forum

Post by KarenaTheFreak on August 16th 2010, 1:18 am

on a forum the admins want to lock the forum, but they only want to prevent people from posting new topics, the people can still post replies.

Do they have to go to every forums permission and change it? or every group and change the permissions there?

I don't know what you mean, but -

For the whole board - Admin CP > General > Forum > Configuration > Forum on holiday > Yes > Save

For one forum - Admin CP > General > Categories and forums > Forum you wanna lock > Modify > Forum status > Locked > Save

They want to stop people from posting a new topic in certain sections, but still allow them to reply. It had been done once before but the person who did it left the site.
