Hello,

There are a few different options for adding a chatroom to your site.

You can add a Meebo Chatroom by using the Meebo widget on the right-hand sidebar. This is how:

1. Click on the Widgets folder on the content folder on the right and drag and drop the Meebo widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, where you can edit the settings of your Meebo widget.
3. Click on "OK" to add the chatroom to your page.
4. You can edit any settings by clicking on "Edit" on the top left of the green widget toolbar.
5. Please note: the connection on the Meebo chatroom does not work in certain areas where ISP caching is used. Unfortunately this is something out of our control.

You can add a chatroom widgets by using the Widgetbox Gallery, this is how:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, click on the 'chat' category.
3. Choose the chatroom that you would like to use on your site.
4. Customise the settings (remember to register on the related site eg. www.meebo.com, as you need to add your id).
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.

There are a many ways to add a forum. Here are a number of options for you to choose from:

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.

nabble.com is a great forum that is easily embedded onto your page. Go to www.nabble.com, follow the steps to create and customise your forum. Then click on "Embedding Options" at the top of the page and copy the HTML code.
Back on your SynthaSite, follow these steps:

1. Drag and drop an HTML widget from the sidebar onto your page.
2. Paste the code into the HTML editor that opens.
3. Click on ok and your forum will be added to your page.

We have a post on this forum with more info on nabble.com: Free embeddable forum.

lefora.com is another forum that can be embedded in SynthaSite's pages. Go to www.lefora.com and follow the directions to create your own forum. You can visit this post in the forum: Can I get my own forum onto my website to get more information on how to add it to your site.
