Hi Unpredictable,

You can add a forum to your site as follows:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'forum' to see all the widgets available
3. Choose the widget you would like to use on your site
4. Click on the Settings button (looks like a tool!) on the left to edit your settings
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

Alternatively, you can use Widgetbox's specific widget, to do this:
1. Open the "Widgets" folder in the sidebar on the right of your screen
2. Drag and drop a "Widget Box" icon onto your page
3. Click on the link in the dialog and you will be taken to Widget Box
4. Browse for a comment box or mini forum, and when you find one you like, click "get widget"
5. Copy the code and paste it into the dialog box in SynthaSite

lefora.com is another great forum that is very easy to use and can easily be embedded in SynthaSite's pages. Go to http://www.lefora.com/ and follow the directions to create your own forum.
Then:
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:

And a very cool lefora forum will be embedded on your page!

Alternatively you can google for "free forum" or "free message board". When you find one you are happy with, create your forum and copy the HTML embed code. In SynthaSite, drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste the code over the default tags in the editor. Your forum will then be embedded in your page.
