  • Limiting new topics

    I need to setup one of my forums so that only mods can post new topics, but everyone can post replies to existing topics.

    How do I do this???

    This is all easy to do in the user group forum permissions:

    Can post new threads: yes/no
    Can reply to other's threads: yes/no

    Just set the permissions accordingly.

      But the problem is that I only want this "feature" to be in effect for one of my forums/boards, not all of them.

      Basically, I'm going to have one forum for the listing of websites (these will be listed by the mods) and then visitors can discuss these sites. Then I'm going to have other general information forums that I want to act as normal boards were everyone can discuss new topics.

      How can this be done? Is it in the settings? Is there a hack?
