I don’t allow registration on my WordPress site, can I still use the forum?

Yes. If you don’t have registration enabled on your WordPress site, your users can register an account directly on the forum. If you want users to be able to post without registering, you can simply enable guest posting or you can disable the User Accounts feature entirely so users don’t even see the registration option.

What features are avialable?

Please take our features tour.

Is this a self-hosted forum?

You install the plugin on your WordPress website, and the forum is hosted by us at Website Toolbox. You don’t have to buy and maintain expensive servers, software, backup solutions, etc. We do all the work, so you can reap all the rewards. You can easily use your current domain name for the forum and customize your forum to match your website layout. Our WordPress plugin also allows you to easily embed the forum into a page of your WordPress website. This makes Website Toolbox completely invisible to your users!
