At the moment, there is a Category setting which enables a banner for users who can view but not add topics to a Category:
On our sites we have a couple of visible Categories which do not allow replies or adding topics. Users get confused by this when they read a topic but there is no Reply button and they don’t understand why.
Could the above setting be modified to result in the banner also applying to topics where the user cannot reply as well? This would keep it nice and tight and not expand the already quite large Category Settings menu. I’m thinking:
Banner text when user cannot create or reply to a topic in this category: _____
Or alternatively have a second banner setting (as sometimes the text might need to be different) such as:
Banner text when user cannot reply to a topic in this category: ______
