How to quickly and easily make my vB3 Forum READ Only while I make my transition over to the promised community? No, not set a whole bunch of permissions or Turn Your vBulletin On and Off. Ultimately, it will be: Redirect 301 /oldfolder/ http://www.newdomain.net/newfolder/ But, during the changeover, I'd like to make the old location read-only until we have everything moved and settled. I don't want to re-invent the wheel and surely someone knows how to do this. Thank you, everyone, it has been a good fifteen and 1/2 years and 1.5 million posts, but end-of-life is THE END.
