    Hey all,

    On a vB running 2.2.4 the following happens

    There is a forum that is open with all normal priveleges for registered users minus the ability to start new threads, and edit/delete their posts.

    Now because of the above the forum shows with a lock on it. Now, I don't want this lock as its not closed, just not allowed to start threads. On my other board running 2.2.5 it runs normal without a lock.

    What could be causing this to show a lock, because of the no new thread ability? (I verified this was the cause for the lock by turning the "start new thread" ability off and on).

    Thanks guys

    In the vBulletin Options section there is a setting to show locks for forums that user's don't have the ability to post to. If you set that to NO, then the lock will be removed.
