posting only in existing/mod created threads?


Active member
Is it possible to stop new threads from being posted in a node, but still allow replies to existing threads or threads that I make? I would like to be able to do this without moderation. I have tried a few different ways buy cannot figure out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Edit: I guess I could just remove the create new thread button right from the theme of the node...

There are separate permissions for threads and replies:

Admin CP -> Users -> Node Permissions -> [click a forum] -> [click a group]

You need to change the Post new thread permission. You need to Revoke that permission for the Registered group and Allow it for Administrative.
