Locked Topic
« on: February 23, 2014, 02:21:46 am »
I know if a topic is locked, you can't reply, but is there any way to show thats its locked, like at the bottom of the page it saying that its locked?  Also are you guys working on a reply box instead of a reply button?

There should be a locked icon on the message index page when a topic is locked.

We do have a reply box. Such as on this forum there is a quick reply setting when enabled shows a quick reply field at the end of topic page.

So I can enable there to be a reply box so that members can reply without having to hit the "Reply" button?

Could you please tell me how?


And don't mean to bother you about the locked topic, I know there is a lock in the index, but is there anyway to put a message when a member clicks on the post? Thanks!

(11:55:02) Agelbert: Hello to anyone knowledgeable of how a topic is Locked and unlocked. Some clown has, AGAIN, locked, not just the one that severely criticises Fossil Fuel Industry Hydrocarbon Hellspawn attacks on people and the planet (which is what he did before when I came here and got somebody to unlock that topic), but EVERY topic on my forum!


I am the admin, but I cannot unlock a locked topic. support I don't know how the hacker is locking the topics. I have eliminated every single global moderator and moderator privilege position from the members in case one of the ten moderators somehow could do that. They are all members with no moderator privileges now. I am the only admin. Please come over and unlock all my topics.

Woe is me. I have received no answer from this support site on the above serious issue.





WHY can't I, as an ADMIN, unlock a locked topic?


I have been running my forum for FIVE YEARS. I post an average of 5 posts a day. I have had as many as 52 guests and recently I have had over 10 guests two or three days a week.


All those people see your ads. YOU have an incentive to help me out on this locked topic hacking I am being subjected to.


I will give you a month to either fix this or enable some Admin feature that can unlock a locked topic. If you do not help, I will, despite my reticence to have to move thousands of posts to a new site, be forced to say goodbye to Create A Forum.


Have a nice day.

I have seen this happen before. You are going to have check board level permissions, Permission profiles. Other than that I don't know.
Try editing the post and setting it to unlocked

Thank you for your response. 👍



Okay. I'll try that. I hasten to add that I did that before a few months ago. I split the thread to a new board, as well as a new topic. I then laboriously transferred about a year's worth of posts (posted prior to the split) to the new topic. I then deleted the locked topic.  That worked for a while.


Now, the hacker decided to lock everything. 😠


I have recently gone through all the board level permissions and stripped out any and all moderator privileges so even a moderator cannot modify or even moderate other people's posts. I also downgraded all moderators to member status.


I even took away the power to delete their own posts from members and guests, though of course, I still have the permissions set for them to view and post on all the boards and topics (which is now useless for posting because everything is locked by the hacker 😟).


At the moment, nobody is supposed to be able to moderate or modify posts or lock a topic but the Admin.


Here's a screenshot of one of the boards that is locked.





ALL my boards have this lock symbol indicating all the topics are locked. 😡


I wish the Admin had the power to just right click on the locked topic symbol to unlock it. Splitting a thread to allow posting works if you do not have some Hydrocarbon Hellspawn 🐉🦕🦖😈 watching to lock it after you have gone through all the work to transfer the posts.


That said, if you can provide me with a software tool where I can, after creating a new board with all the same topics that were locked, transfer quickly all the data, I could stay ahead of my detractors for a while.

Check the board itself the  permission profile
     
Then if needed go to Admin -> manage permissions -> edit profiles and make changes there to the profile if is is not correct

Okay, I'll do that and get back to you.


I just tried something that worked on a supposedly locked board. I have the permissions set so guests can view and post. So, I tried posting as a guest anonymously. It worked! 😀


Now I'll try what you sugggested on the boards.

The icon at the bottom I believe is just a legend doesn't mean whole board is locked. Each post would have a lock icon

👀

I don't recall seeing it there before. At any rate, it appears that anyone can read and reply to a post. 👍 👍 👍


There is no locked symbol on any topic so I guess I'm okay for now.


Thank you for your help. 💐 🌞


I have trimmed down the board permissions to the bare minimum (read and reply to posts and attachments allowed).


I have the permissions set as the default for all 11 (I forgot I had added a new board) boards.
