    I have a forum I am adding to my blog and I’d like to add like a twitter feed type serve to it which is one of the designs being coded for the forum in the future but I haven’t been able to find a way to do this. Is it possible? Its basically going to be like the recent posts widget you have but on a forum.
    Blog url: http://the1lackstertennis.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is the1lackstertennis.wordpress.com.

    We cannot embed a forum into a free hosted WordPress.com blogf. There is no FTP access and we cannot istall forum plugins or any plugins for that matter. You have three free options: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/04/23/wordpress-com-forum-options/

    (3) Register a forum on the internet and then create a custom menu in your blog and include a custom link to the forum as an item in your custom menu.

    No it’s not possible.

    Your miss understanding my point I’m not linking the forum as I have done that in a custom menu.

    I am asking to find out if its possible to have a recent posts type menu on a forum in a code. (Is that clear enough for you now as you obviously didn’t read the first one in the right context).

    I’m sorry I did not read more carefully.

    I am asking to find out if its possible to have a recent posts type menu on a forum in a code.

    However, the answer is still the same one.

    As well as an RSS Feed for Posts, there are RSS feeds for dynamic Categories, Tags and Archives pages.

    I think for what you want you are limited to a RSS widget if in the Sidebar if your Forum has an RSS feed

    You know how you add a twitter feed to a forum its basically that kind of thing just with links to the last 5 articles to be published like the recent posts does on the blog itself.

    Yeah adding the link of the forum to the blog itself was simple but its the feed with the last five articles published I am trying to sort a code for.

    I looked on the forum and was not able to figure out if it has a RSS feed or not – If you explain what you have to work with from the forum or post the code (make sure it is formatted as code) – maybe someone here can help

    They have a twitter feed but mine wouldn’t be like that exactly as its for wordpress and I’d like it to show the last 5 articles published.
