    Hello,

    I am needing to migrate data in a read only format to the sitefinity forum platform. The data mainly contains threads that are to be viewed for archival purposes only.

    How do I go about this? I would like to shut down the reply and add new thread functions.

    Thanks,

    Marianella

    Hi Marianella,

    1. To migrate any data you have to use Forums API.

    2. You can create a forum with the following settings

    Deny anonymous authors - true.
    Create a role where you can add users which you do not want to edit the posts and deny all permissions for this role from Forums module >> Permissions.
