Add-on Thread starter can only reply to thread?


Active member

So I was wondering if there's any kind of plugin out there that allows only the thread starter to reply to a thread within a specific section of your forums. What I mean is this:

I have a "Report Section" and then 2 report related forums within that category, in which anyone can create a thread but have it so only Administrators can reply, not even the thread starter - to prevent any user from being able to comment on the threads. I want it so the thread starter and Administrator can comment on the thread, within the "Report Section" category.

Hopefully this makes sense, but I can explain further if needed. If there's no plugin, would this be easy to do? I'd be willing to pay for this at a reasonable price if possible.

I'm using it for same thing and it works perfect for me.

When I allow override in the picture, this means it'll override the permissions for that section and allow only the thread starter to reply, correct?
No, that means a group can "ignore" that action - set it for administrators and/or moderators.
