I have looked through some of the permissions for the forum and they look pretty basic, but I can't get it to work properly!! I have set up the permissions in all sorts of ways, but I want only Admins to be able to start a thread, and everyone else to be able to add replys if they wish to do so. It's for an Announcements section, just like here on xF, but as I say I can't get it to work!! I gave up in the end, and reset everything back so don't have any screen-shots of what I did. I hope someone can explain it a little =]!
