Hi all,

Very new to forums and running one so please be gentle ha

Ok, so created on homepage...added my customers so 10,000 to members, shows 10,000 active members but no activity do they have to sign up?

Like 4 members so far on it out of 10,000 what am i doing wrong?

Also when you land on it, its all open, can i make it so login to get into forum so no random just posting, like it to be my customers and anyone that bothers to register?

All feedback and tips greatly appreciated.

Best Justin.

Your forum has 10.1K members. Please refer to the attached screenshot for confirmation.

Simply use the wpForo "Display Name" and "Nicename" fields on the Forum > My Profile > Account front-end page to customize the names as you prefer.

Yes. 

I'd recommend reading the wpForo documentation as well. The plugin offers dozens of useful features, allowing you to customize your forum as you wish: https://wpforo.com/docs/wpforo-v2/

The "Prove your humanity" doesn't belong to wpForo. wpForo only has built-in ReCAPTCHA. So contact the plugin that is responsible for the Prove humanity feature.
