Is there any way to lock a thread for comments or to lock down comments on a whole site on Disqus?

According to docs.disqus.com/help/18 it should be possible to lock a thread. However, I'm unable to find the ID of the thread because the UI on Disqus has changed after this documentation was written. – grm Jan 26 '12 at 22:01

  1. Go to your Disqus Admin panel
  2. Find the comment from the thread you want to close.
  3. Click anywhere on the comment to expand it.
  4. Hover the mouse over the Find... button and list menu will appear where the last option is All comments from this thread, click it.
  5. In the new page, there will be the Close button in the right sidebar.

Thanks! Does this only work from the old interface? I can't find the option in the new interface. – grm Jan 27 '12 at 7:46
@grm: I have no idea about the new/old interface differences. I think my instructions are for the new interface. – dnbrv Jan 27 '12 at 14:01
