Forcing guests to login before allowing access to the forum

Your forum can be configured to require a user to log in or register an account before being allowed to view a specific category, all of the categories, or the entire forum.

To require users to log in before any page of the forum is viewed, follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your Website Toolbox account.
  2. Click the Settings link.
  3. In the Settings menu, click the Security link.
  4. Set the Privacy option to Private.
  5. Save your changes.

Making your forum private will ensure that only registered users can view it. You can also optionally choose to approve new registrations.
