First steps into Nearforums for website administrators

If you have successfully setup Nearforums, there are some steps you might want to take care:

  • Create the admin user: You can create the first user by signing in any of the authentication providers (Facebook, Twitter, Custom, ASP.NET Membership) set up in the Site.config. The first user to login into the Nearforums website will be automatically set as administrator. Later, you can promote or demote users on Admin Dashboard > Manage users
  • Manage templates:  Adapt the look and feel of the site by installing templates on Admin Dashboard > Manage Templates
  • Create the first forum: The site can contain multiple forums, each forum can contain multiple threads/topics and each topic, multiple messages.


If you have any comment or suggestion use the Codeplex Discussions.
