We would like to remove the functionality of creating a new topic for our users all together. Is there a way to do this?
This doesn’t make much sense to me because users wont be able to earn badges or gain higher trust levels. Anyways…
If you set these site settings to 0 It will stop users creating topics
max topics per day ,
max topics in first day also, change this to TL 4
min trust to create topic to be sure that users can’t create topics.
You can also restrict your category settings to only allow seeing and replying for the
everyone group, which effectively blocks creation of topics. This needs to be done on each category, too.
