Description of problem

I do not have a way to lock a topic. I can lock a forum in the admin panel. I found this in a search, but it I don't see any of this in my forum.
https://help.forumotion.com/t10773-guide-to-mod-tools?highlight=tools

I added myself in the Moderator Group with all permissions thinking that would change things and it doesn't.

So, I need to find out how to lock a topic.

Thanks for your time.

There are some moderation tools you can see while viewing a post (not in modifying page), make sure find and locate the right ones

Or you can try to manually lock a topic by getting its URL as an ID, like this
Code:
https://your-domain.com/modcp?mode=lock&t={TOPIC-ID}&tid={SESSION-ID}

then paste it on the next browser tab -> Enter

Code:
https://your-domain.com/modcp?mode=lock&t=161350&tid=abc123

Note:
{TOPIC-ID} is ID of a topic, for example : https://help.forumotion.com/t161350- ( {TOPIC-ID} = 161350 )
{SESSION-ID} is session ID of a staff or moderator who having access permission to moderation tools

Session ID will re-new every session, so you can't copy & paste a single one to any site

I got it. Thank you very much. It was outside the post at the very bottom, "you can moderate" and it was inside there. I would have never found that.

Thanks for your time!
