Lock entire forum?

Post by AdminofBearsOnline on April 28th 2011, 8:34 pm

Hello, is it possible to lock an entire forum for an unlimited time so only the admin (me) can access it?

You can only lock for 24 hours, and you will need to make sure you re check that option if you want it longer.

you have 2 other options (forum on holiday or under construction)based on what exactly you are trying to accomplish or the reason(s) behind it.
acp>general>configuration> scroll down and you'll see them both> you can view the description of the option(s) via the "?" located to the left.
Hope the additional info helped
