Is There Anyway To Add A Free Forum To A Free WordPress Site

  1. Hello I am trying to find a program or plugin that would let me add a free chatroom or forum on my gaming site but I cant find anyone that does that. So if there is anyone that has done this before or knows how to please let me know.

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

  2. it's pretty simple. You create a forum or IRC or web chat somewhere, and then you use something here on your blog to link to it: a custom menu, a text widget, an alert, or a sticky post.

  3. Hi there,
    There is no FTP access and we cannot install plugins for security reasons. They are only for WordPress.org installs and can't be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    There no forum or wiki that you can embed into a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You have three free forum options: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/
    You have these free wiki options http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/06/13/whats-a-wiki/

  4. Okay thanks for letting me know.

  5. You're welcome from me. :)

  6. Has anyone ever tried freeforums.org? I read the Terms and Services to see if I could create a forum and then add it to a custom menu on wordpress, and I didn't see anything that explicitly said that I wasn't allowed to, but I really don't want to do something wrong or illegal. Any advice?

    Yes, you are allowed to add a custom link to a free forum into your custom menu, and if you read my post you will find that there are several free forums listed there. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/

  8. Yeah I read your post and that's how I got to exploring! Thank you!

  9. Hi again,
    There's not problem with doing this or I would not have blogged that you could do it. :)
