LockInRibbon.png Within the ribbon settings, users with the required permissions can lock a thread to prevent any further replies or updates by clicking the Lock Topic button in the List Tools > Items ribbon of the Discussion Board Plus list or by selecting the Lock Topic option in the item drop-down menu for a topic.

Threads can be unlocked using the Unlock Topic button or item drop-down menu option. When this feature is disabled, the Lock Topic and Unlock Topic options are not available.

After a thread is locked, all editing actions are disabled for everyone except site collection administrators:

  • Existing posts cannot be edited.
  • New replies cannot be posted.
  • Answers cannot be suggested, verified, or removed.
