Marking solutions as the official answer

Hi,

Wonder if you could help explain why sometimes I am able to mark a post as the official answer (with a tick) and at other times, the tickmark is not available for selection on the post that is the solution?

It depends if the category allows solved or not. So you’d edit the category to allow this behavior.

Ah, super :slight_smile: Thanks Jeff! I’ll edit the categories!

There is also a site settings that globally allows users to mark as solved a topic in all the categories (in case you want to enable the solution anywhere).
Otherwise, just enable the solution on some categories as you are doing.
