Freezing discourse site


(Jeffrey C Witt) #1

Is it possible to freeze the site for a while so that no new posts or changes can be made accept by admins?

Seems like something I should be able to do, but I can’t figure out where it settings to do this.

There’s a way to mark the site as read-only but this will also affect administrators.

You can enable read-only mode in the Admin > Backups section.

You can also disable all new user signups, not quite the same thing, but if you disabled all other user accounts, it’d work!
