Go to your *More Admin Tool*
A drop down box should appear ..  choose *manage forums*
You can lock/unlock your forums there.
Hope that helps ;)

When you open each forum to edit,
To lock it make sure it is checked on group members only to reply & post,
Scroll all the way down & click save.
Let me know if that helps :)

i did that, but I was expecting to see the lock in front of the forum,( as I see in other groups that I am not a member of) is it because I am the Admin, I'm not seeing it that way.. BECAUSE everything you have told me I did.. Ok.. Let me lock  my discussion area.  Would you check and tell me if you see a lock on that one since you are not a member.. plzzz. I will wait for you to respond, if not I will just unlock and try something else.. I appreciate your help..
