Lock Forums or Topics
You can lock a forum to prevent anyone from adding new topics or posts.
You might also want to lock just a topic or two within a forum, and not the entire forum. When you lock a topic, no one can add any more posts to the topic.
From the toolbar, click Communication.
If needed, select a class.
- Under Forums, click Active to view the active forums for the class.
- Click the name of a forum.
- Optional: To lock a topic, click the topic name.
- Click Settings.
- For State, select Locked.
- Click Apply.
The forum or topic is locked, and a lock icon is displayed to the right of the name.
Your students see a message stating that the forum or topic is disabled. They cannot add to it unless you unlock it.
