  • Prevent user from posting

    Dear sirs,

    I would like to know how I can prevent a user from posting. I don't want to ban him, I just want him to be able to log in as a registered user but he will only be able to read the posts, that's all. How can I do that?

    Thanks in advance

    You would have to create a usergroup that cannot post in the various channels and move the user to that usergroup.

    You can create a Usergroup in the AdminCP under Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager. On that screen you can tell it to base its permissions off the Registered Usergroup. Set the appropriate permissions to no.

    Edit the user in the AdminCP and set their primary usergroup to that new group. If they have any secondary usergroups, any yes permission will override the no permissions you previously set.
