Open forum on a wordpress.com website

  1. Hi

    Is it possible to embed a forum in a wordpress.com website?

    If not, is it possible to link to a separate forum site fairly seamlessly from a wordpress.com website?

    If so, what is the best (and most spam free) forum to use?

    I read this 2-year-old discussion but the replies seem to be ambiguous.

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

  2. It is not possible to embed a forum on a WP.com blog. You can LINK to a forum, if you've got one hosted elsewhere.

  3. Thank you Raincoaster.

    Can anyone point me to a wp site that has a forum linked to it ?

    I'd like to see how that can be managed.

  4. You would link to the 3rd party forum site using custom menus option.
    If you're using a theme that doesn't support top navigation you can use the custom menus widget

  5. Also here is some free forum sites http://www.freeforums.org http://www.proboards.com/
