en WordPress.com Forums › Support Open forum on a wordpress.com website Author Posts August 20, 2012 at 10:19 am #983493 kizibuMember 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. August 20, 2012 at 10:20 am #983574 kizibuMember Sorry, this was the link I intended to add in my first post August 20, 2012 at 10:57 am #983583 raincoasterMember 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. August 22, 2012 at 11:43 pm #983742 kizibuMember 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. August 22, 2012 at 11:51 pm #983743 sl1kMember 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 August 22, 2012 at 11:54 pm #983744 sl1kMember Also here is some free forum sites http://www.freeforums.org http://www.proboards.com/ Google search results http://is.gd/2vJsII August 23, 2012 at 12:47 am #983745 timethiefMember ~~sl1k @kizibu I looked into this and published a post that may be useful.
