Managing forumsAdded by IBM on February 11, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|When you are a forum owner, you can edit, delete, and lock or unlock a forum. In addition, you can pin forum topics so they appear first in a forum. The Forums administrator can also perform these tasks.
Forum moderationParent topic: Using
When moderation is enabled for Forums, the content that users add to forums does not display until it is approved by a designated moderator.
Adding additional owners to a forum
If you are the Forums administrator or a forum owner, you can add additional owners to a forum to share the responsibilities of forum ownership.
Pinning forum topics
Highlight or prioritize important topics by pinning them. When you pin a topic, it stays at the top of that forum's topic listing to ensure that it receives attention from other forum participants.
Edit a forum to make changes to the forum's name or description, or to add or remove forum tags.
Locking forums and forum topics
You can lock a forum when you want to prevent users from contributing to the forum or making updates to existing posts. If you do not want to lock an entire forum, you can control access at topic level by locking forum topics.
You can delete forums when they are no longer being actively used and you want to remove them permanently.
