Forum On Holiday, Forum Under Construction



The purpose of this tutorial is to present two options that we can group together in the field of "forum maintenance". These two options allows you to restrict access to your forum to all of your members (except for Administrators).

The forum on Holiday / vacation option prevents members from being able to post on your entire forum.
To be more precise, when you activate this option, your forum permissions are "virtually" set to "Administrators". Why "virtually"? Because the permissions you have assigned yourself are not changed.
This option acts as if you had set the permissions of your categories / forums / sub-forums to "Administrators only".

Of course, an Administrator is not bothered by this option. He /she can post as he /she pleases.

Admin Control Panel settings:
Administration Panel  General  Forum - Configuration

Just check on YES and validate.
Don't forget to remove the Holiday / vacation mode as soon as you finish.Forum On Holiday, Forum Under Construction Icon_wink

The forum option under construction allows to cut the access to your forum to all of your members (including moderators). This option should be used sparingly.
