Extras - Restricting Thread to Admin and Author

Back to User Guides

What is This Feature

Starting from version 4.1.7, it's possible to create restricted threads where only the admin and author can participate. Other users will be able to see the questions.

It's not possible to restrict an existing thread.


To let users restrict questions, head to CM Answers Pro → Settings → Thread tab and Question subsection. 

There, make sure "Enable thread for admin only" is on.

 This will let the user restrict a newly-created thread.

Default Option

You can mark this to be the default behavior. To do so, check "For Admin only option checked by default" under the Appearance tab and Editor subsection.


You can change the frontend label from the Label options.
