About Conference Administration

You use the Allaire Forums Administrator to manage all aspects of a Forums installation, including conferences, forums, users, and groups.

You use the four manager wizards provided with Forums to manage the four major areas in Forums: conferences, forums, users, and groups. Each wizard leads you through the steps necessary to create, remove, edit, or customize all aspects of the Forums interface.
