    Business use + Members Only viewing?

    Hi! My questions are:

    1) Are we permitted to use vBulletin within a small business?

    I want to create a forum for a team of remote workers, so they can share information, and chat.

    2) Can we limit forum viewing (and posting) to members only?

    It's vital that the forum is private, viewable by staff only.

    I have searched the manual and forum, but there are so many great options in the software, and I am not sure about business use. I want to be clear about these details before we go further.

    Many thanks for any help !

      1. Yes, just make sure you have the website url tied to your vbulletin forums license info after you purchase vbulletin.

      2. This can be done by editing the group/forum permissions and only take a few clicks and your ready to go. You can even disable registration for new users, set it up so all new registered users have to be approved by you before they are moved into a privileged group to view forums, threads ,profiles, etc.
