Thinking of purchasing xenforo. Is it possible to auto lock all the threads in a selected forum whenever a new thread is created? If it needs to be achieved by add-on, any link to the add-on is appreciated. Thanks.
Well one thing would be worth considering is just making that forum so none or most of the usergroups can't post in it. Even locked Admin/Moderators by design can post in a locked thread so where as lesser user can't post in a locked thread, if they couldn't post there to begin with its all about the same isn't it?
If that won't do it for you I think it would require an addon but it would be pretty simple for someone to write it.
