  • [Forum] How do i hide post new thread buttin in specific forums?

    I have 3 forums where posting threads are disabled for everyone (even admins). How do i disable the "Post New Thread" button just for these forums?

    Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> %YOUR SPECIFIC FORUM% -> Edit Forum -> Go

    Set "Forum Is Open" to no.

      Problem is, new posts for these forums are made via a form and i still want users to be able to reply to the created threads.

        Nevermind. I figured it out by replacing the if statement from the newthread button (in FORUMDISPLAY template) with:

        <vb:if condition="$GLOBALS[forumid] == 11">

        (My forum id to allow is 11)

          Can you be more specific? I would like to do the same thing and find several instances of newthread in the FORUMDISPLAY template.

          Thanks,
