Hi Support

If I think of a closed topic, I think of a topic where I can do nothing: no reply, no comment, no answer, no up or down voting, no nothing.

The case is that currently I can up/down vote and like/unlike any closed topic and their replies or answers in these wpforo forums. 

For example I just up-voted on ‪this closed topic‬ in Q&A forum from "0" to "1":

 

In my case this is potentially problematic. Is there a way to avoid this and stop any more liking/voting on closed topics?

Hi @jorgew,

There is no option for this, but you can use js code for this purpose. Try this js code: 

jQuery(document).ready(function ($){
if ($('.wpforo-open').length) {
$('.wpforo-post-voting').remove();
$('.wpforo-like').remove();
}
});

Thanks @sofy

-> Will it work on the Q&A layout as well?

@jorgew,

And which is the best file to insert this code? 

you should add the js code in your active theme's js files. 

Will it work on the Q&A layout as well?

yes, it'll work for wpForo Q&A layout.

I pasted code at the end of all these 11 js files of my active theme.

It works fine, but only on replies in Threaded layout, not on topics and only if I refresh page once topic has been closed (refresh seems to be automatic when topic has been opened)

It doesn't seem to work in Q&A layout: voting option persists after closing Question on the question itself and on all answers.
