Making a Community "Read Only"

Turning on "Read Only" mode

Community Owners can pause posting inside a Community by enabling read-only mode. We recommend turning on read-only mode only when your Community has ceased (for reasons of posterity). While it can be used to "pause" the Community during a break so that students cannot post and earn points during the break, we caution against creating unnecessary Community interruptions.

Turning on "Read Only" mode

  1. From the left navigation panel, go to Settings → Basics.
  2. Scroll down to "Read Only?" and flip the icon below it from a grey X to a blue checkmark.
  3. Click the SUBMIT button to save changes.
