Solved Forum is locked - no one can post

Post by Peter Gunn on April 7th 2011, 3:48 am

I have created a new forum here:

http://avrp.forumotion.com/

At the bottom of the home page, it states "Forum is locked."

Members can join this forum, but no one can post.

This is not the same problem as addressed here. All of the settings on my forum are as specified in the "How to Unlock your Forum" page.

I can not find any link in the control panel to unlock the forum.

I need to know what to do next to get this resolved.

Thank you.

Hello,

Are you sure that your forums are not locked? Or the members had permissions to post? Please check this permissions:

Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums > Modify > 'Forum Status': Set it to 'Unlocked > Save

Or

Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums > Permissions > 'Write & Reply' > Check the box for members

Do this to all forums.

Thanks for the reply. This has been done as you suggested, however, the forum is still locked and no one can post. Additional guidance would be appreciated.

You have no buttons on your forum.
Go to Display >> Pictures Menagment >> Advanced Mode >> Buttons >> See if you have => Post new topic button etc...
If it doesn't go well install a new theme.

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

Important: You can also help the moderators to know if your topic/problem is solved by EDITING your first post and marking the topic as solved. Thank you.
