XF 1.2 Prevent threads from being 'bumped'


Hey all,

Not sure if this is possible in xenforo?

I want to create a new board on our forum for product launch announcements, however I want to prevent the threads created in this board from being 'bumped'.

The purpose of the board is to allow registered users to announce any digital product launches they have coming up and I wanted the threads to list in date order i.e. newest to oldest without the ability for anyone to bump a thread.

Is that something that's possible?

Thank you in advance

You can't prevent people from posting "bump" or something like that, but you can set the default sort order in the forum's configuration to be sorted by the start date by default.


oops daft question Mike, where can I prevent the word 'bump' from being used in the ACP? thanks for your help to : )
