    How do I make a forum so only admins and mods can create threads (inc uploading | polls) but members can reply only?

    admin > users > node permissions > "usergroup" >

    can post new thread - deny
    can post replies - allow

    and of course same thing for admins/mods but:

    can post new thread - allow

    We would generally recommend using deny absolutely sparingly. Use revoke instead. Deny cannot be overriden--ever. It has its uses, but it interferes with the ability to re-add abilities with an additional group.

    Excellent, thank you for the clarification Mike. I will keep that in mind. :)

    What is the difference between the Deny in the Usergroup permissions and the Deny in the Node permissions? Just wondering as there is no revoke in the usergroup permissions

    Deny is identical. You don't need revoke a the global group/user level as there's no inherited permissions to remove. (Default is basically the same.)

    Did I do it right, I went to - Admin > User > Node Permission > Main Forum 2 > Registered

    Forum Permissions - Can Post New Thread = Revoke

    Then goto User > List all Users > User 1 (admin) > User Group

    Change user from Registed to Administrive.
