Mark as "Sticky"

Post by alan081954 »

On the first 2 areas in my forum,I have them "locked" so no one can post,It is just to give them some information about the forum. I am new so I do not know if I have this set correctly or not. Should it be a "sticky"? If so how do I turn it into a sticky? Thanks for looking and for any answers you guys give me.

In a thread you have down to the right bottom a Quick moderation tool, where you can choose the setting of the thread, like "sticky" and other things.

The ability to make sticky post is set in the forum permissions so check you have the forum permissions correctly set, as for unlocking the forum you will need to do that in the forum management section of the Admin control panel. If you mean unlocking topic you will need to make sure you have the correct forum moderator permissions set :)

Check the group forum permissions. Being able to do a sticky is forum dependant based on the group you're in.

You have to be a full moderator for the forum to see all of the options.

Not necessarily. A user or group can be granted sticky permissions on an individual basis, and do not need to be part of a set moderator group.

First off.....Thanks for the replies. I have gotten as far as what the diagram shows. When I go to turn it to a sticky,It tells me I must "choose a topic",There are no topics to choose. Should I just delete the 2 areas and start over?

Where are you when you get this error? What are you asking about undoing?
