Placing Specific Topics in Read Only

Hi there,

I’m looking to place one specific category into read-only mode and was wondering how we can do this. I know we can place the whole community into read-only but we only wish to do this for one topic as the trial is coming to an end.

Any help would be appreciated.

All the best,

If it is a topic you could archive or close it it. For a category you could change the category permission to “see”. Then people cannot post there anymore.


To see or understand what Moin mentioned about category permissions, see this guide: How to create private categories using category permission / security settings - howto / faq - Discourse Meta
