Allow new topics but not replies

Is there a way to set at the board level the permission for any user to create new topics, but not allow any user to submit replies to topics?

 

I tried this combo:

 

  • Grant "start topics"
  • Deny "submit posts"
  • Grant "post read-only topics"

 

But it disabled both replies and topic creation.

 

We don't want users to have to choose the "block new replies" option themselves, we want it done automatically as many of them would forget to do this.

 

Thanks!

Re: Allow new topics but not replies

Hi @lilim - There isn't a direct way to achieve this OOTB as far as I know, the available permission lack to achieve this functionality. There are already many threads/ ideas for this. However, you could have a customization in place which would disable the post reply buttons and may be made configurable bsaed on the roles as well. A bit complicated, but definitly worth exploring.

 

I hope this helps.
