Members of the network administrator tier, network moderators tier, or those users selected as a moderator for a particular forum have the ability to lock or unlock forum threads. This can be done at the time of thread creation, or by editing a pre-existing thread.

Each thread can be:

  • Locked
  • Unlocked
  • Given an expire date / time when the thread should unlock automatically.

Threads can also be locked or unlocked in bulk from the thread list view.
