A good way to build your list is to offer Forum Membership in exchange for a user’s email.
These steps will allow you to setup your Optin page that once a user opted in, they will have access on your Forum.
You can give full access or selected category only.
To give access to a Forum
- Go to Campaigns in the left-sidebar menu, then select the relevant campaign you want to edit.
- Click on + Add New Page.

- You can edit any aspect of the Optin Page simply by clicking on the Page Element in the Preview Pane.
- To edit the Optin form, click on Form Settings in the left-sidebar menu.

- Under Redirect to this page on Optin, select the page you would like users redirected to once they have opted in.
