Can I create a paid members only forum and how do sub-forums work?



I am evaluating purchasing a license but I need to be able to create a paid member only forum. Is that functionality available in Xenforo?

Are subforums, as seen here, a ready made option available out of the box or is that a custom code? Would each subforum require a license?

Sub-forums do not require separate licenses, separate installations do.

You can hide content based on permissions, and require users to purchase a user upgrade to receive said permissions, however, there is no pay-wall to register available in the core code.

Hi ama, I have an addon here which allows you to setup a pay to register site. There is also one more addon which allows guest purchases but I have not tested that.
