Is it possible to limit a category for creating new topics only by administrators?
I have a general info category that I people can reply to, but I dont want them adding new topics too. is it possible to configure a category like this?
Yes, you can remove "create topics" privilege from normal users.
@baris thats a global option though right?
Im hoping for the ability within just specific categories
@sweetp it's per-category.
It is a per category privilege.
I can't seem to find the option
Im running the latest NodeBB v1.10.2
where exactly do I enable/disable this?
@sweetp In your ACP under Manage -> Privileges. Select a category (not global) and remove create topic privilege from registered users.
@Dravere nice thanks!
I didn't notice that "Global" was a dropdown,
@sweetp Yes, this seems to be a recurring theme. We should be addressing this at some point...
