Hello riya,

It's a feature that Yola would like to offer.

Not available yet but we're hoping.

Hi Riya,

Embeddable forums work well on Yola.

My favourite is Nabble. http://nabble.com. They provide high quality forums which function well, look great and easily navigated. Lefora is another that has been successfully used here.

There are other lesser forums such as JS-Kit which is a highly functional chatboard. It's an excellent product but not the full functionality of a traditional forum

Thinking back on your site protection you may like to explore Google friend Connect. This allows private info to be passed securely I was thinking that this may be a way of enabling membership and giving passwords securely to your members.

Hi Riya,

Here is the tutorial for installing GFC on your Yola site. Please read it through twice as everyone gets tricked by the simplicity of the installation.

http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...
You DO NOT need to download the files mentioned by GFC. At the end of the installtion you will see what looks like an error. It isn't, it's only becasue you are still in the builder. When you update your site after installation it will work.

Happy to give you more information on getting your friends connected fater you have it working. Too much info otherwise :)

Hello Riya,
The other options would be to use a Custom Form which would allow you to have people fill it out, and then once they have done that it would automatically redirect them to the page you want them to see once they have filled out the form.

You could also password protect the page they are redirected to and give them the login username and password on the Form; something like: Once you have submitted this form you will be able to access the contents of this site using this username and password..

Wufoo has a feature like this, form redirection, although it is not a free service; you can get a subscription for $9.95 per month. Just an idea.

We can give you better instructions for doing this if you decide to.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

password protected pages isnt your yola password. any pages you dont want certain people viewing... just dont give them the url you can also exclude pages from being crawled by google. I am using the password protected pages as a backdoor to allowing users to have personalized pages. I make them think the user name and password is unique to them without actually saying it. I tell them for security purposes, please login in only from this url and provide them with their unique url which is manually updated by me. I also don't provide a way of finding these pages except through their email that I provide them their unique url. However, their page at one point may be indexed because I have yet to figure out how to exclude a page from google's index <-- anyone that knows how to do this, please say... check out my contact us page, it explains the process to obtaining a unique page and the benefits.
