Can I get my own forum onto my website?

I know that you can't yet create a forum on your Syntha Site website, so I have created one on Lefora.com. Is there any way I could embed the forum from that site onto my Syntha website? I have tried Iframe, but it didn't appear to work.

Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cheeky Hobbit

I went to lefora.com, created a forum and embedded it in my SynthaSite page. So now I can speak with some authority :-)

Here is what you need to do:
1) In SynthaSite: drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page
2) Delete the default text in the HTML editor
3) paste this code, replace YOURFORUM with the short name of your forum on lefora:

<!-- <iframe src="http://YOURFORUM.lefora.com" width="800" Height="600"></iframe> -->

NB: Remove the and the -- >. I only added that to prevent the forum from being embedded in this post!

So I have learnt something from all this:
1) Lefora is a great service with a super support page!
2) You can embed their forums in your SynthaSite site using an iframe!

Get back to me if you have any trouble embedding yours!

Best wishes
Monique
