Preventing editing & deleting of posts

Hi

I would like to prevent users from editing and deleting posts.

Can someone please help me to do this?

Many thanks.

If you're looking to do this board wide or even per-forum, here's how:

Go to the permissions tab in the admin panel and select the proper forum(s) and user(s) or group(s) that you want to change. Hit edit permissions. It should pop up a screen with simple pulldown boxes of Full Access, Limited Access, etc...

To the right will be an "Advanced Permissions" link, click that then choose the "Actions" tab from the next screen and you should see the options to change "Can delete own posts" and "Can edit own posts".

Hope this helps!

If you want to do it board-wide, simply change the Role mask.

Go Into Permissions -> forum roles.
Click the green-gear edit icon next to Standard Access, or Standard Access+Polls, whichever one you are using for standard users.
On the Actions tab, set "Can delete own posts" and "Can edit own posts" to "No"

Hi

I tried the role mask but it does not work.

I have tried Permissions->Groups' Permissions->Advanced Permissions but there is no action tab.

I must be doing something wrong.. any ideas? :oops:

Many thanks.

Forum Roles will only work if you are using forum Roles in permissions.
If you are using advanced permissions in forum permissions, then you will have to set each and every forum separately.

You are not seeing an Action tab in Group permissions because there isnt any.
It is in Group Forum permissions.
