Setting permissions on forums

Authors list

When you create your forum you can set a variety of permissions. The available permissions are:

  • View Discussions - who can see the forum and the messages in it.
  • Modify Forum - who can modify the settings of the forum itself (modifying messages is a separate control below).
  • Start Discussions - who can start a brand new discussion thread.
  • Reply to Discussions - who can reply to a discussion message.
  • Modify Messages - who can edit the messages once they are posted.

To modify the permissions on an existing forum:

  1. Click on the forum.
  2. In the Actions Menu, choose Modify Properties and Permissions.
  3. Open the Permissions section.
