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
- In the second-to-leftmost navigation panel, go to Settings→Basics.
- Scroll down to "Read Only?" and flip the icon below it from a red X to a green checkmark.
- Click the SUBMIT button.
