Permission Based Access to the App


Staff member
You can allow everyone to access your forums via the mobile or you can limit the access to apps for specific user groups. Now you can attract even more users to upgrade to the sponsored package which helps you keep the forum running in the longer term.

You will find new user permissions in the user group permissions area.

You can set what happens when a user which doesn't have the permission to use the app tries to login.

To edit the message displayed, you can edit the phrase forumapps_you_are_not_allowed_to_access_the_app

If you want the user to go to the sponsors page or any other particular page, you can set the URL in the ForumApps options in your XenForo Admin Area.
