How to only enable admins/mods post in a forum?

Post by Matrix Leader »

I have created a forum for Tips/How To Guides here >>> http://www.bbmatrixforums.net/viewforum.php?f=55


What I want to do is, I want to give READ access to everyone to see the tips, but ONLY allow Admins/Moderators to be able to create threads in this forum


how do I do this?

Thank you for your help in advance

permissions
groups forum permissions
registered users
the forum
read only

Then make sure the global mods group (which the admins are probably in too) has standard access.

Just a quick question, I have a member who is gonna help me in the Tips Subforum.

He does not want to be a moderator since he is a moderator of a rival website.

Is there a way that I can give him access to make new topics in that subforum even though I have set it to read only access for the Registered members?

Make a new group.
Give that group standard access.
Put him in the group.
