Yola is integrated with "" which provides you with the ability to easily add a forum to your site by dragging and dropping the forum widget into your site.  Here are the steps:

  • Select "Communicate" in the Sidebar on the right of screen.

  • Drag and drop the Forum widget.

  • You can sign in using your Facebook, Google, or Yahoo account and more!

  • For more information about and how it works, please feel free to visit their site.


    If you would prefer to use a different forum service, you can also embed a forum from Go to their website and follow the steps to create and customize your forum. Then click on "Embedding Options" at the top of the page and copy the HTML code.  Back on your Yola site, follow these steps:

  • Drag and drop an HTML Widget from the Sidebar onto your page.

  • Paste the code into the HTML editor that opens.

  • Click on "Save" and your forum will be added to your page.

  • We have a post on our forum with more info on Free embeddable forums.


    Alternatively, you can use Widgetbox Gallery to locate a forum that you want to use on your site.

  • Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery Widget (located in the "Widget Collections" folder) onto your page.

  • A dialog box will open, search for "forum" to see all the widgets available.

  • Choose the widget you would like to use on your site and customize the settings.

  • Click on the green "Get Widget" button and it will be saved and added to your page.

  • Save and preview your page to view the widget.

  • I hope that gives you a good head start!
