  • Forum Close but you can post?

    Is it possible to have a forum closed, but users can post into existing threads? This way new threads cannot be started, but new posts into an existing thread are allowed.

    Thanks!

    Edit the appropriate Forum/Usergroup permissions and set 'Can Post Threads' to 'No'.

      Would this interfere with the RSS poster? If so, would custom access masks override this?

        Just make sure the RSS Poster is in a usergroup that can post threads in the forum.
