Permission settings help please

Post by Stace.ihs » Sat Jul 07, 2018 1:58 pm

I know this is so simple, but I don't understand. Thank you for any help.

I want to use my board like a library, read only.
But I, admin, want to be able to post new information.

I want this set up for all the categories/forums I create.

How do I do this? I am really slow in this, please show me step by step.
Thank you so much..
