Hi,

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 and customise the settings
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

nabble.com is a great forum that is easily embedded onto your page. Go to [www.nabble.com](http://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 our forum with more info on nabble.com: [Free embeddable forum](http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...)

Do you have an HTML embed code from freeforums.org? I had a quick look at the freeforums.org support page and it seems that there code is php. If this is the case then it is not possible to add them to your SynthaSite site as it is not possible to upload php files.
