    In the UBB software, when viewing a closed thread, the reply button would be replaced with a closed icon that was not clickable. The reply button still appears on vBulletin on a closed thread (though clicking it displays a message that the thread is closed). Is this a limitation of the software, or a bug? Just curious.

    Which thread is closed that doesn't say that it is closed?

    I posted a message in the Testing area and closed that thread. The closed button is there and all appears to be working just fine.

    Ok Parker, I found the problem. The closed icon does appear, but its ALT tag still reads "Post a Reply". At work I use a stealth browser I created that strips graphics, so I rely on the ALT tags.

    Also, in UBB the closed "button" was a non-clickable image, since there's no purpose in clicking the "Closed" button. In vBulletin, it's still a hyperlink that just tells you the thread is closed.

    Thanks... KJP

    Ok, I fixed that. Closed threads will say they are closed and will not go anywhere if you click on the button.
