  • Create a new page
  • View existing pages

  • Use as 'Locked Screen'
  • This determines if the page will be used as a landing page for anonymous viewers (landing pages replace the traditional registration screen). This feature only works for private Forems. If your Forem is public, the landing page will not display.
  • Only one page can be used as a locked screen at a time.
  • Locked screens can be overwritten. To use another locked screen when there is already a locked screen in use, click the "Overwrite current locked screen" button in the modal that appears when "Use as 'Locked Screen'" is clicked.
