News forum locked, even for comments


I think it's great to lock the News forum. However I wanted to clairify (in case you can't tell from your logins) that even a registered user is not currently allowed to comment or reply on threads that exist already.

It is not clear from your locking posting if this is by design.. I read your posting as saying that normal users cannot create new threads, but can comment on existing ones. If this is the design, it doesn't currently work (at least for me...)

Thanks for your hard work!

Hey Will,

This is by design--the forums package doesn't support anything less (maybe in the newer version that I have running on devel, which will roll out once I've knocked out all of the other stuff I have on my plate), and I need to insure that the new inline news module for Virtualmin never gets spammed. ;-)

So, yes, no one but me and Jamie can post anything--new thread or reply--in the News forum at this time.


Check out the forum guidelines!

Figured it was something like that. Sounds good.
