Did you make the permission's of the forum(s) so that members can only view/read and not post?

I don't think so... but I have managed to lock myself out of my own forum and now no one can post. I think I will call it a night and go soak - my head or something. This is not a simple forum....LOL

Solved How to unlock a Forum

Post by nitzan December 2nd 2008, 9:35 am

Schalom
I have a BIG Problem. I try to unlock my Forum but all i can do is unlock thread or posts but not the entire Forum! So where i have to look. I checked every entry in my Forum and they are unlocked! So how do i unlock the complete Forum? In the Admin Tools i checked every post and thread but maybe iam blind but i cant find a unlock forum.
I forgot to mention even that every thread is unlooked, still since the forum is looked no one can post an reply. new topics is possibly to write *puzzledme*
somebody any ideas?
my forum : http://jsnet.forumotion.net
on the indexpage the forum shows already looked.
thx for help

well again i searched and there are two categories of objects in the forum.
Category and Forum
a Category can contain Forums
I cant chance permissions for a Category, for a Forum i can and every Forum is on unlocked

ok i created a new forum like the old one all brand new and still the new forum is also looked, what can i do? i simple dont understand how to unlook a forum even a complete new one

Do you mean unlock a forum in the ENTIRE forum? If so, please try this:

Admin Panel >>> General >>> Categories & Forums >>> Click on the orange circle on the locked forum >>> Next to 'Forum Status', click on 'Unlocked'.

If your whole forum is locked, contact a mod or admin on this forum.

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Please use the edit button) Wink

Can you please explain in better detail what you mean by your forum is Locked? Can you receive new members? Are members able to register to your forum?

When you say locked at the bottom, do you mean on the main forum page at the bottom of your forum. Are you talking about the Topic Icon for "Locked"

I'm not really understanding what you need help with exactly. mwii

I'm sorry if I'm not understanding this properly. It's very frustrating. My forum is here : www.hydroponicgarden.net in right hand column. My web designer installed it for me. It comes up just fine but then I scroll down and it says "Forum Locked". What am I missing?
