  • Under Consideration
Is the yola forums(forums from yola that we can put on our site) gonna be like phpbb(3.0.5)?(use BBcode, user groups, friends/foes list, install styles, etc...) I feel it'll be easier for the users and owner of the site if it's very similar to phpbb.

Hi Sora12,

Thank you for your suggestion and we'll forward it onto our development team. We don't plan to release a forum feature in the very near future, but we know it's something that is often requested.

In the meantime, we recommend using something like nabble.com which is easy to integrate onto your site. More info on this thread: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/fre...

I don't really like nabble, so I'll just wait for the yola forums.

Hello Sora12

I'm sorry to hear that Nabble is not a great alternative for you. Another possibility may be lefora.com.

i currently use nabble.com, i am more in favor of a phpbb type forum they are MUCH nicer but lefora uses ads for the free version! Personally if anyone is to make money off adds on my site it needs to be me.

Hope someday Yola can integrate a phpbb type forum in its features, I would definiatly upgrade for a feature like this!

Thanks for the feedback Cory. It it not likely that we will add this to our roadmap any time soon but we'll add to our list of feature requests to consider in the future.

No doubt that a phpbb type forum is much easier than anything else. I too am looking forward for one such forum in future.

sucks that phpBB type forum widget isnt on the top of yolas list. forums are a big part of my website and nabble just isnt as professional looking with phpBB they let me choose a theme like the minecraft theme (since my site is for a minecraft server)

anyway if anyone has any idea how i can get phpBB on my site it would be very useful

phpBB website http://www.pbpbb.com/

Hello tyler,

There were also some other alternatives suggested such as Nabble and Lefora. If neither of those work, you may want to consider just using a link to your phpBB website. Here's a tutorial on adding text links.

You can use phpBB

1) Build and host a forum with forumotion
2) Use an iframe to embed your forum
3) Customize your Forum

I am not a spammer.

A: The reason my name was advertise is because I logged in with the wrong google account: advertise@akwildshots.com instead of my main one azharkhan@akwildshots.com

B: I linked this site because I have been searching for a way to incorporate PHPBB for a while and found them to be the best. (The adverts are annoying but are cheap to remove) There are alternatives if you are interested like myfreeforum.org who also offer PHPBB but are far more complicated. The site I showed is easier to use and has great features.

C: If you don't believe any of this then check out my forum on Yola made with my silver account under my account: azharkhan@akwildshots.com. This site is still under construction.
