    Pros
    Really pleasant, really good company to work with. Support is great and effective, communication is great.
    Excellent customer care, very affordable and really friendly people to deal with. The customer service people are mind blowing good and nothing is a problem.
    It is helping us to help each other, answer frequently asked questions for everyone to see and give the opportunity for engagement and to develop best practice.
    Cons
    The issue is that because I use with one team for 6 months and then close it out and then have to open another to use with the next training - it's frustrating for pricing and set up.
    I don't like that I have to manually log into my website toolbox account to find the user in question and then ban them.
    It sounds cheesy, but I really am struggling to think of one at the moment.

    Great Forums software solution

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Allows our clubs to communicate with each other outside our regular meeting locations. Watch club membership can also be controlled through the software from approvals to deletions.

    Pros

    Website toolbox has been our provider for our Watch Club Forums (350 members) for 7 years and also hosts forums for a local activity club (65 members). Software is easy to setup and functions very well. Company is constantly updating with new features. Downtime has been zero and if you need support they are there quickly and solve issues promptly. Highly recommend this company if you are looking to add forums capabilities to your association or company,

    Cons

    Major Software changes should be advised before implementation to administrator.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your review Rick! It's fantastic that your forum has grown to have so many members! We'll continue to provide you with the excellent support, new features, ease of use, and zero downtime that you've come to expect!

    Reliable and flexible, with good customer support.

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I run a discussion forum connected with a website. I have found the platform to be completely stable, and whenever I have had a technical query it has been quickly resolved.

    Pros

    Ease of use, and flexibility, offering both Forums and Guestbooks. Very good customer support via online chat and email.

    Cons

    Limited range of design templates, some a bit dated now.

    Vendor response

    Hi David! Thanks for your review! I'm glad you loved our support and found Website Toolbox to be easy to use, reliable, and flexible. Please check out the two new themes called Classic and Material that we've launched over the last few months. A while before that we launched the Angela and Modern Elegance themes. We're also in the final stages of launching several new themes called Minimal, Lights Out, and Compact. All of the new themes have huge design improvements. Definitely take a look! We've also launched the newest and most powerful version of our easy theme editor, which gives you even more control over the appearance of your forum.

    Very limited usability and scope for further development

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    None

    Pros

    Not much at all, other than the fact it’s a forum platform ... we inherited the forum and without the abiliry to migrate it - it’s totally useless

    Cons

    The software is very limited in scope for firther advancement of your forum... it’s like the shopify of forum software.. limited advancement, no ability to integrate skins/theams etc etc compared to great platforms like machine forums... and there simply isn’t any way to migrate the forum to a different platform

    Vendor response

    Hi Matt, Thanks for your feedback! You can instantly export all of your forum data in the Content -> Export section of your account. You can then migrate to any other forum platform at any time. We're constantly adding new features and functionality. Please see this page for all the recent updates: https://www.websitetoolbox.com/blog/whats-new-504 We provide multiple themes and an easy theme editor for customizing those themes. You can also use CSS to completely customize the themes and even create your own theme. Please see this support article for instructions on how to do that: https://www.websitetoolbox.com/support/customizing-your-theme-214

    Very friendly and efficient support on a robust software for Forum

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I use the Forum to share analysis of the stock and market with my followers. This software allows me to do that effortlessly while avoiding other people to submit/share irrelevant topics. The permission levels allow me to monitor/control that. There is an email facility that helps me to keep in touch with my followers.

    Pros

    Most of the customizations like theme etc. can be done by the user him/herself. No special skill is required. Permission is at a granular level.

    Cons

    The paid forum functionality is for the "whole forum". It cannot be activated for a selective category.

    Vendor response

    Hi Sagar, Thanks for the fantastic review! I'm glad that you've loved the customization and permission controls we have. You can set up Paid Access for specific categories instead of the whole forum by going to Settings -> Paid Access -> Permission and changing it to "Specific Categories". You can then select the categories that you'd like to enable Paid Access for.

    Two Forums

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    The experience has been good with Website Toolbox is just a shame that Facebook has pretty much done away with forums.

    Pros

    Very easy to use and looks professional.

    Cons

    It’s been around for a long time and could stand an update.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your feedback Wayne! I'm glad Website Toolbox has been easy to use and looks professional. Definitely do check out our new Classic and Material themes for a fresh and modern look for your forum. We have a new theme called Minimal coming soon, along with others called Classic, Compact, and Lights Out to follow shortly after. We're constantly updating all aspects of the forum and admin area. You can always check here for the latest updates: https://www.websitetoolbox.com/blog/whats-new-504 Facebook is great for short-form comments, but it's not really ideal for long-form discussions, owning your own content, improving SEO, monetizing your community, privacy of your users and data, or customizing the appearance. Forums are still the best!
