Dumb question: Removing 'Lock thread' for users...
« on: November 05, 2019, 04:24:30 pm »
Sorry this is a pretty dumb question. A long time ago I managed to remove the 'Sticky' option for users posting on my forum, so only I as Admin had the ability to make threads sticky/pin threads. However, I've since forgotten how to edit the 'Attachment and other options' tab when for users on 'Start new topic.'


I've noticed users still have the 'Lock topic' option, I want to remove this as well. So how do I go about doing this?


I've tried adjusting user permissions and unselecting 'Lock own thread' and 'Lock others threads' but this doesn't seem to have worked.


I vaguely remember there was a second step that had to be done, but not sure exactly what.


Sorry its a basic question but hoping you can help?


Thanks

Are you logged in as a user? when testing?

The lock topic is controlled by permissions on a membergroup level in most cases unless you switched a board to have board level permissions.

Hi there,

Apologies for the long delay in getting back to you.

Yes that's right - I created a 'registered member' account on my forum (a regular/non-admin account) in order to fine tune my forum/test for bugs/errors for future regular members. When making a new post with the 'registered member' account I then realised that I could lock my own threads as a regular user.

I then logged in with my Admin account in order to uncheck 'Lock threads' in board level permissions. However, this doesn't seem to make any difference. I continue to see the option 'Lock Thread' under Attachments and other options when I make a new post as a regular member (non-admin).

A few months ago I somehow managed to remove the 'Sticky thread' option in 'Attachments and other options' but I have forgetten how, as a good few months have since passed.

I basically want the options for regular users to be exactly the same as I see them on this forum - only 3 options - 'Notify me of replies,' 'Don't uer smileys' and 'Return to this topic.'

Anyway I will play around with my forum settings to see if I can re-discover how it was done last time. I will update you on here when I get time.

Thanks!
