    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.

    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.
