How to Lock Forum Posts

Why would you want to do this?  To make Forums 'read only' so your students can access the information on the Forums but can no longer reply to posts or create new ones.

  1. Click on the Forum

  2. Within the Administration block click on Permissions

  3. Select ‘Student’ from Advanced Role Override drop down menu

  4. Scroll down to the section titled Activity:Forum and put a check next to the Prevent option next to the options Reply to posts and Start new discussions

  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and save your changes

Here is a video explaining how to use the Moodle forums permissions settings to lock form posts.
