@julian Thanks, I'm aware of suggested topics, we're already using that but it gets topics from other categories too. Which doesn't work when you just want to focus on certain type of topics (a category) only.
Can posting in a category be restricted without affecting sub-categories?
I'm setting up a proof-of-concept NodeBB installation to replace a small Simple Machines Forum I run. (I'm not worried about importing because we don't have much content.)
I'm using categories and sub-categories. Is it possible to block posting in a category? For example, I don't want anyone to post a topic directly under "Member Forums", rather they'd go into the appropriate sub-category (like "General Discussion" or "Minecraft") first.
Untick "can create" topic and "can post" in the parent. But not in the child categories. Folder permissions don't traverse down from what I remember.
I will try that, thanks! I wasn't sure if privileges were inherited or overridden by the settings on parent categories.
Kind of hard for me to test as an administrator lol. I can post regardless of settings. I guess it's time for a low-privilege account.
