Locked forum "new topic" and "post reply"

I have installed your forum and set up a locked private forum. When I log into the locked forum the buttons that normally say "new topic" and "post reply" appear as "locked" buttons. Although it is true that the forum is locked, Is there something I am missing or should those say "new topic" and "post reply" when people are logged in with proper permissions.

If people with proper permissions are logged it, it will allow you to post. I believe that it still displays "Locked"

Well if I am not mistaken, I think that you are searching for a Private forum rather than a "Locked forum". Information about Private forums can be found here.

Remember a locked forum is a forum where only people with special permssions, such as administrator or a moderator can post while a private forum allows all users, with access to that forum to post.

Right it allowes you to post when you click on them but it could be less confusing if they said what they did maybe with a locked icon or something.

Gmex2006, thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to look into the differences between locked and private. It could very well be that private is what I am looking for.
