Hi all.

I have a non-profit client that has been using WebWiz Forums for a few years. Lately, the forum has dried up; folks have lost interest. He would like to prohibit new users from registering and prohibiting replies -- he would like to turn it into a read-only forum so the information which has been collected over the years can still be searched and utilized by EVERYONE...not just members of the forum with a valid login. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I should also mention that he has not updated the software in a very long time. So I would need to have an approach that would have worked around the 2010 timeframe.

Go into the forum admin, and set each user group to read, but not reply.
