"Unavailable" Discussion Board Forums? Not Really

Please be aware that a Blackboard “Known Issue” exists where unavailable Discussion Board Forums are visible and sometimes accessible to students. Discussion Boards that are set to “Available” but have a Date/Time restriction set for a future date are still visible and accessible to students.  Students can enter the forum and create threads in those situations.

To make a discussion board inaccessible to students, you must manually make it “Unavailable”. The forum will still be visible to students but they will not be able to access it.  We recommend waiting to add discussion board forums until you are ready to use them. This bug will be fixed in a future service pack.
