Hi!

1)  My forum is set up so that it is only available to be seen by those who are members. Currently my front page, if you are not already a member, is blank. It just has the title and the menu bars as seen in the photo attached. Is there any way for me to put some type of text or box that says a bit about the forum and then a link to Register Here or Log In Now? If so, do I do that in the Forum or on the Page I created in my wordpress site?

2) Can I add a Register Now link to the login screen? I don't see that option.

Hi BethAnne711,

1. We'll fix this in next version release. Please wait for the next update.

2. This can be easily solved by theme customization. You can find the doc for theme customization here: 

https://wpforo.com/docs/root/forum-themes/theme-customization/

You need to make changes in the login.php file. 

For dynamically get the registration page URL just call wpforo_register_url()   function.

Make the HTML changes, e.g add Register link.

<a href="<?php echo wpforo_register_url(); ?>" class="wpf-register"><?php wpforo_phrase('Register') ?></a>

Hi @bethanne711,

I'd recommend just create one public category with forum and add one public closed topic with all information you need to bring to guests.

Hi @sofy! I saw there was a plugin update. Did my 1) question get updated in this? 

 

Thanks!

Please read the 1.5.0 version changes summary here>>

We've added an option to create a text and display on forum page. It can be show/hide on certain forum page and for certain Usergroups. So so you can display that text only for non-registered users (Guest usergroup.)
