    Moth balls!

    We run a small phpBB forum. Each day I remove lots of unwanted 'stuff' from it that has appeared overnight.
    Due to unforseen circumstances I will be unable to do this 'housekeeping' for the next several weeks.
    Is there a way I can suspend the forum, put it in moth balls so to speak, so that I will be able to resurrect it in a few weeks time, without being faced by hoards of rubbish that has appeared in the meantime?
    Thank you.

    If you want to provide only read access to the forums, I'm pretty sure there is an option in forums management to suspend a forum on a per-forum basis. I can't remember the exact menu it's in.

    Alternatively, if you want to deny access altogether for the 2 weeks, put a .htaccess file in the root phpbb directory and set it to deny access.
