Wix Forum: Logging in to Wix Forum

3 min read
Anyone who visits your site can read and share forum posts, but to post, follow, like, and comment, visitors need to sign up, become members, and join the community
Signing up and logging in is done through the login bar. 
Note that the login button has two views:

  • The view visitors see before signing up or logging in.

  • The view they see after they log in.

Members Area Login Bar

Today, when you add Wix Forum to your site, it comes with the Wix Members Area. This includes a login button and an added site page where forum members can view and follow each multiple profiles and activities. If you want the Members area, but without this members page, you can hide it. Click here to learn how to hide pages. 
Visitors who log in, gain access to all members pages, including special pages for Wix Blog, Wix Stores, and Wix Bookings. Learn More

Forum Login Bar

In addition, or instead of, the Members Area login bar, you can add a forum login bar which appears at the top of your forum. 
Like the Members Area login bar, it grants visitors access to any members-only pages, but not to special pages for Wix Blog, Wix Stores, and Wix Bookings, but it doesn't add a separate members page to your site.

  1. Click the Wix forum app in the Editor.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click the Display tab.
  4. Click to enable the Login from forum menu toggle.
