Adding a forum to a site

  1. Is there any way to add a forum to my site while still keeping it all online in the dashboard & not using a plug in?

    The blog I need help with is fluffylollipop.wordpress.com.

  2. No. You can't even use a plugin. What you can do is get a forum somewhere off WP.com and use a Custom menu to put a link to it in your header.

  3. Would you mind spelling this out, please:

    -- 'get a forum', i.e. start your own with forum software?
    -- is there WP.com forum software?
    -- link to it - whether from your header or anywhere else?

    With many thanks in advance,
    Sabine

  4. 1) go to Google, look for free online forums, and get one
    2) no. WP.com is a blog host. It supports blogging. There are lots of forum hosts that support forums.
    3) once you have a forum, just make a link to it. A regular old link. It will not be hosted at WP.com, but that doesn't mean you can't point people at it.
