Default What is meant by Forum Locked

I just bought a Wrox box and wanted to browse through the forum related to the book but it is marked as "forum locked". What does that mean? I wanted to see if my question was addressed and if not, I wanted to post a new question. I suspect it means I cannot do that.

It means only the admin can post messages although you can read. Are you sure the one for your book is locked, I find that hard to believe?

Perhaps it is locked because it is the 2nd edition. I think this link will get you there:

As I read this, it is locked but there are some 290 posts in the forum yet I cannot see how to browse through those postings. Thanks for your reply.

jjamjatra:
You're looking at a post in the announcements forum, where we used to announce new books (something I've stopped doing). The actual forum for the Crystal Reports book is:

Hope this helps!
