    Is there a way to allow regular users to open/close their own threads?

    There seems to be a couple of addons that address this, but I just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something obvious before looking at those.

    Yup, that's the one I found before posting. I was just hoping someone would pop up and say that this is planned for the next release of XF itself, as "Open / Close own threads" is a fairly common requirement for forums, and I try and avoid running addons that mess with core functionality where humanly possible.

    Testing that addon now, though. Thanks.

    The suggestion is located here. You can add a like to vote for it. But until its moved to Implemented / Resolved Suggestions, you'll have to hope for it and look in the HYS forum for Mike/Kier to announce the addition.

    "Lock / Unlock own thread" is a standard XenForo permission.

    There is Lock / Unlock threads, by this is applied globally to all threads. Locking & Unlocking of own threads is not a standard XenForo permission.

    Ah, I see. It seems to be part of "User Essentials" by Syndol.
