  • Forums appear locked to isn't logged in

    The forums all appear locked to anybody who isn't logged in. I am the admin so of course when I log in it looks unlocked. Is there a way to unlock these forums? Please help me step by step

    Do you have show forums locked turned on? Can they view posts or just get shown the lock icon?

    More information is needed to assist you please, thanks!

      Go to the AdminCP and go to:

      usergroups --> usergroup manager --> in the top, default usergroups you will see "unregistered/Not logged in" To the right of that there will be a list to "edit Usergroup (id:1) and to the right of that a "Go" button.

      Click the "Go" button.

      In the second group below, in the new window which will open, you will see:

      Forum Viewing Permissions

      The first two are: Can View Forum and Can View Thread Content.

      If these are set to "NO", then guests CAN NOT View the Forums or See the Threads.

      "Unregistered" and/or "Not Logged In" (that means "Guests") will see the "Locked" Icon.

      If Can View Forum and/or Can View Thread Content are "YES" then "Unregistered" and/or "Not Logged In" ("Guests") can SEE the Forums and the Threads.

      In the same general area you can set whether or not they can Post and do other things.

      This is generally referred to as the "Usergroup Permissions"and you can set these settings seperately for each usergroup.

      Hope that helps.
