Hi, I'm trying to get comfortable with Moodle 1.7. I ordered William Rice's book and have found out that there have been some big changes recently and many of the sections don't seem to be quite the same as described.
I have a site News forum and want to block it from replies, but can not see where to make such a setting. William describes a "no discussions, no replies" setting but I can not see it. Searching these forums I see that there are permissions and I can see that these are settable for forums other than my site news, but not for the site news itself.
1. where do I get to the site news permissions?
2. how do I restrict a forum (site news or otherwise) so that I can choose one of: discussions and replies are allowed; no discussions but replies are allowed; no discussions no replies?
