Hello kathryn,

I went to your reference for information and it's a closed down site. I don't know where I could go to get the specifications of your software. A specific answer maybe difficult unless someone has specific info available.

Uploading software to Yola is not likely to be allowed (security and functionality issues I gather). I would like to hear a staff members confirmation on this though.

I wish i could help.

My only support would be if you decided to go the route of setting up another forum. I think you have a very established forum and probably don't want to go down this path?

I hope something comes out of the woodwork for you.

Kathryn,

Further thoughts.

You may like to look at options here on Yola for the various good forums used by web-makers. Then maybe you could communicate with the primary providers to see if they will accept your data to include in a forum that you wish to create. This is purely off the top of my head and I don't know what your needs are.

it was simply looking for alternative ways.

Hi Kathryn,

It would depend on what sort of code the forum needs to be embedded on your site. Am I correct in understanding that you already have an existing forum? If so then you could keep that where it was and link to it from your menu.

Let me know if that is something you need help with, or if I have misunderstood your situation.

Hi kathryn,

I understand your wish to host the forum on Yola.

We're trying to get our heads around this. What we need is more information on the requirements of the hosting and using of these forums.

Could you give us a lead to v forums, their requirement for hosting etc. This info will help greatly in understanding how this forum needs to be set up. Different hosts have very different allowances for such things. The forums often have different options as well.

We look forward to your response.

I've been researching ways to host members/ so they can make forums...
I know it is possible because I've seen a site that can do it...http://warriorlifegame.yolasite.com... so if you can figure out how the maker of that site did it, It would clear up a lot of confusion:)

Hello ninjawolfangel,

We do offer tutorials on how to integrate forums with your Yola site. You can take a look here: Where do I get a forum to add to my site?
