OP Can Close Thread
Allow thread authors to close threads in approved forums
  • MyBB 1.8.x.
  • Provides an ACP setting to stipulate forums in which thread authors may close their threads (without having to be moderators).
  • Provides an ACP setting to limit that privilege to members of (a) stipulated usergroup(s).
  • Provides a new button top and bottom of thread pages for authorised thread authors to close/re-open their threads in those forums.
  • Provides checkboxes for authorised thread authors when submitting posts to close/re-open their threads in those forums.
  • Prevents even authorised thread authors from re-opening threads that have been closed by moderators, unless they too are moderators.
  • Provides an option to auto-apply a thread prefix to threads closed by their authors.
