How to disable "Discussion Board" list template in SharePoint 2010

It took almost my two days to search a way for hiding the "Discussion Board" area from a blank site.



Main target was to not allow the users to create a Discussion Board in the site. I tried few ways but did not work as required. So the final thing that worked was the Powershell Scrip. I used the below script (found by one of my colleague) and it worked perfectly fine. Hope it will save someone's day.

Regards,




Before:


After:




Add-PSSnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell
$web = Get-SPWeb "http://yoursitename/fullURL"
$web.Features | ForEach-Object {
  Write-Host $_.Definition.Id "---" $_.Definition.DisplayName
  IF ($_.Definition.DisplayName -eq "DiscussionsList")
  {
    Disable-SPFeature -Identity $_ -URL "http://yoursitename/fullURL"
    Write-Host "Disabled feature DiscussionsList"
  }
}
Write-Host "------------------------------"
Read-Host "Press any button"
