Posting in locked topics is a Moderator permission.
Make sure you are a member of the Global Moderator group or that your Administrator group has Global Mod permissions.

How do I do that? How can I make sure I'm a "member of the Global Moderator group or that your Administrator group has Global Mod permissions"?

These things are explained in the documentation. Have a read through that, it is much clearer than a few lines in a post.

And I suppose no one can be bothered to actually just answer the question. Don't you think I've ALREADY LOOKED in the documentation? I mean come on. Don't post if you're not even going to bother and help. :/ I have looked in the documentation. I can't find it. You can be helpful and provide a link.

You need to be a little patient, some of us like to sleep as well.

If you aren't in there add yourself.

If that doesn't help please fill out the support request template to enable us to assist you better.

Or, to give your admin group global mod permissions:
go to Permissions / Global Moderators
Highlight the Administrators group and click Add Permissions
Set the role to Full Moderator and click Apply All Permissions.

Alright. I've done all that, but as the administrator, I still cannot post topics in locked areas, etc. What am I doing wrong? :(
