Add A Free Forum To Your Blogger/BlogSpot Blog

I strongly recommend all the readers to bookmark this post. A forum is a must for every blog with increasing readership.


A Bloggers Community © Baratunde
Forums are entirely different from blogs. Forums let your readers interact with each other, create new topics/discussions and some of them even moderate the forums along with you.
1. Forum from Wikipedia.
2. The popular Digital Point Forums

A few weeks back, even I started a forum - BloggerStop-Community



[Please join and participate in the NEW BloggerStop Forums]

But in free Blogger/BlogSpot blogs, you are not allowed to create a sub-domain or even a new directory (an online folder). So hosting a forum seems impossible, but not anymore. Before you read any further, see these 2 examples:

1. A Blogger Blog completely changed in to a Forum.
2. A simple (static) page on a normal Blogger blog, converted to a Forum.

Instructions to Add a Forum To Your Blog
:

STEP #1:
Create and publish a new static page on your blog, exclusively for a forum. As an example, check out my forums-static-page here:

http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html

STEP #2:
Create a new forum at Nabble: Free Forums at Nabble [You will do this within 5 minutes]
Copy the HTML code...


STEP #3:
Go to Blogger Dashboard -> Design -> Edit HTML and mark the tick-box "Expand Widget Tempaltes".

STEP #4:
Find (CTRL+F) this code, in your template:
<div id='content-wrapper'>

If you are not able to find the above mentioned code, then find (CTRL+F) this one (for new templates made for Blogger Template Designer)
<div class='columns fauxcolumns'>

And immediately ABOVE/BEFORE it, paste the code you got from Nabble, with this ADDITIONAL code (Highlighted in BLUE and RED):

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html&quot;'>
PASTE_CODE_FROM_NABBLE_HERE
</b:if>
NOTE (Important): Replace the code in RED, with the link to your forum-page.

STEP #5:
Save your temaplate.

STEP #6:
This step will HIDE everything from your blog (post content, sidebar widgets etc.) and ONLY forum will be visible in your forum-page.
Find this code in your template:
</head>
And immediately ABOVE/BEFORE it, paste this code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
#content-wrapper {
display:none !important;
}
.columns, .fauxcolumns {
display:none !important;
}
</style>
</b:if>
NOTE (Important): Replace the code in RED, with the link to your forum-page.

That's it, a new forum on your blog is ready.
Now, Invite your readers and friends to join you at your forums.



NOTE: If you want to replace an entire blog with a forum, as shown in the first example (Forum In A Blogger Blog), then, first create a new blog. Download the template as a backup. Now, replace everything between the BODY tags in the template:

...
<body>
..
..
..

</body>
...

with the code copied from Nabble. So your template, code will look something like this:

...
<body>
<a id="nabblelink" href="http://n3.nabble.com/BloggerStop-Demo-Forums-f6****.html">BloggerStop Demo Forums</a>
<script src="http://n3.nabble.com/embed/f6****"></script>

</body>
...

And save the template.

DEMOS:

1. Show off your work in the comments section, to get your forum featured here...

Showoff your work in the comments below, the best two forums will be displayed here to other blogger.

The Idea is interesting but the Forum (page) looks really ugly (too dark) !!!
Why you don't "hide" the sidebar, footer, title, and navigation links ?????

Yeah actually this post was to be published after a few hours, anyways thanks Beben and Soufiane, for mentioning these points. I have updated the post and hid those extra elements too, but acually except black no other color is blending properly with my template...
@Soufiane,
I think leaving navigation links and header is fine within a forum, it shows a relation between the forum and blog, moreover we give our readers a chance to explore our other pages/blog too.

Hey Hetal Di!

First of all my suggestion to you is to use the !-- more -- instead of automatic read more (BEST Method To Truncate Posts In Blogger/BlogSpot Blogs).

But for any reason, if you still want to use the read more hack, then use the updated code from STEP #2 of this post:

Anup, do you mean a sharing/bookmarking widget, like "add this" or a counting widget...to count/track the visitors?
Anyways, you can place any/both of these, as the forum is being placed just as a frame based on JavaScript, so of course you can use any widget/script along with that in the same widget/blog.

Sai Ram brother Divya,

I am using the second method, as it would not be easy for me to manually truncate 300+ posts on my blog now. But my question is why the same hack is automatically is applied to static pages, and even on expanding static pages, it is not expanded.

Please show me the best way but of course easiest way...

Reply

February 18, 2010 9:01 AM delete

Well my suggestion to you is to start using the -- more -- method for your latest posts, which are presently being displayed in homepage. And gradually add the same tag to your older posts too (say 10 posts a day) and within a month, all your work will be done and you can delete the code from your blog.
Anyways, to solve the static pages vs. automatic read more hack problem use the NEW CODE from STEP #2, of this tutorial:

Well..Well...Well...See one of my post about Do follow is great. I think your blog is No Follow blog. Let me get some your views. NoFollow bloga re not different with Dofollow blog. It's proved! You can see it here:

February 21, 2010 12:22 PM delete

Well Anup, It's not that I don't want to pass on the link juice to my readers, but the fact is:
1. First of all, most my comments are genuin questions from readers who are finding some difficulty in their blogs, if I make my blog "dofollow" then there will be a great increase in comments (some genuin and some that LOOK LIKE genuin but ARE NOT actually genuin) and overall consequence: Many of the genuin queries may be left unanswered by me....as I'm the only one author in this blog.
2. Secondly you can see the effect of what happened when accidently an announcement was made on a forum that BloggerStop.net is dofollow blog, I wasted hours in deleting comments.

So until and unless Blogger changes it's comments deletion method or I get a team of bloggers to manage the blog, I cannot make it a dofollow blog.

February 22, 2010 2:15 AM delete

Yeah that's true Anup, nofollow always doesn't mean "no link juice for the links" even I have seen many nofollow links being counted as valid backlinks in the Google webmasters account.
And that is the reason, I hav posted that link to "Comment Like This!" on top of the comment-form, so that all commentators will get the maximum benefits of commenting here.

You have placed the forum in the main-wrapper (instead of header area), so first move it to the header region, then v'll proceed with hiding of the extra elements.

Thanks for this. I didn't think it was possible to host a forum on a blogger blog until I stumbled across your article.

I avoided the need to edit the code to hide the forum from other pages etc, simply by putting the Nabble code directly into the post of the static page I created.

Works a treat.

@Anup,

Just checked your forum page, I think you are able to save the template, but the forum is not coming up, rather a big blank space is visible. May be cause, you haven't used the entire code, use the code from tag <a... to </script>

or else, there's another way to do this: in the static page, where you have the forums, make the width of the content area wider and hide the sidebar.

Hello Sai,

Having a forum in a blog is a great idea especially since my new blog requires readers to share their problems. That's why I am been on it for several hours! Trying to figure it all out. But I have given up! Please I need your help

I have created a static page as you suggested the static page is now linked to from the tab on the blog.

I have created the free forum and copied the code. I placed the code on the header of my blog and it displayed but ofcourse it shifted everyother information about the blog including the tabs down below the forum . (I have removed and save the code in a notepad until I figure it out. So you won't see the forum on the blog)

I tried to make it display on a specific page as you suggested. Created a new widget as you can see below the blog htt://relationship-issues-and-answers.blogspot.com

My problem now is how do I link all items together?

If we are adding the code of the forum to a new widget, what then is the purpose of the page (forum) created?

what URL should be entered in the code

Finally, how do I create and edit categories on the forum when it comes up?

Hope to hear from you

Thanks

June 19, 2010 8:09 AM delete

You have a static-page dedicated for forum:
http://relationship-issues-and-answers.blogspot.com/p/relationship-issues-and-answers-forums.html

You have a widget, where you have pasted the code, being displayed in every page...

Now, you have to limit this widget only to that static-page created by you. To do that, you have to use this method:
http://bloggerstop.net/2008/12/show-widgets-in-only-specific-pages-or.html

Once you do that, your widget will be shown ONLY in that page and not in any other page.

But It does not look professional like yours. It's not well spread across the page. And the Followers widget of google in my footer is showing on the forum page.

Even 'link to this post' also shows

Please how do I clean it up, and make it spread out like yours

I also would like to know how to add categories to the forum where post can create new topics.

Well yes, you do get SEO benfit as the traffic coming to your forum will be counted for your domain.
And moreover you/your readers can link to your forums individual topics/threads easily and while linking them, the link juice will be passed on to your domain instead of nabble.

Divya Sai ... while I did have some trouble setting up the subdomain, now that I know how to do it, it's actually quite simple. (Use an A record, not a C name.)

The Nabble Support is excellent. They have a great product and really do everything possible to help you.

Thank you again for this information.

Hi Divya,

I am a great fan of your website. I tried this forum on my blog. The forum was created, but the problem is, it looks very unmanageable. - http://www.weblognow.co.cc/p/forum.html

Was wondering if you can help me hide the sidebar and few more glitches it has. My posts are hidden, but there is almost a new website just below the forum. So if you can help, am sending you the HTML file of my blog, and it would be of immense help to me, if you mail it back to me asap. As this is a blogging group, and a forum is desperately needed here.
Thanks in advance. :)

Instead of the code in Step #6, use this one:


<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;http://www.weblognow.co.cc/p/forum.html&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
#content {
display:none !important;

#sidebar {

@Turtleguy,
Happy for you.

@Ramzi,
In STEP #4, you have to find this code:
<div class='content'>
and paste that code from Nabble, ABOVE that tag.

In STEP #6, use this code instead of the one in the post above:
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
.content {
display:none !important;
}
</style>
</b:if>


Of course, the url should be of your forums page.

Hey there,

In STEP #4, you have to use EXACTLY this code:

PASTE_CODE_FROM_NABBLE_HERE

You haven't applied the STEP #6 of this tutorial, do it and other things on your blog will hide.

HIyas Divya,

I'm using the Fracticality template and your code does remove the sidebar from the static page but there seems to be some extras like the RSS and Search that stays behind along with the backgrounds.

The Nabble forum does show up but only the width of the column (800px). I've been trying to get the forum to expand to the size of the whole page without any luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!

In your blog Zena, the outer-wrapper uses a background image that is present in not only in the header region but in the posts-area too. Mail me mentioning your problem/this comment through my contact page. I will give you a new code to use in the forums page.

HIyas Divya,

While waiting for your reply, I was able to adjust the code to remove the other id/class items and scale the forum to fit the entire page.

I tried posting the code here bit it wouldn't let me.

You can check out the code on my page...

Hi Zena,
That's good. I have mailed the code to your email id zenajuran@....
In that code, I have mentioned just a single additional line of code, which will display your header image above the forums. This is that line:

HIyas Divya,

I was wondering where your email went to. Unfortunately, I have email from that account forwarded to my MS Office and if an email gets marked as spam, I don't see it for a whiles.

Thanx for cropping the image for me and creating the line of code to center it above the forums... works and looks great!

I might take it one step further and resize the image to make it a header instead so that it floats on top of the forum header right in the center.

I appreciate your time and effort, have a wonderful day!

This worked out well for me:

http://www.nyskiblog.com/p/harvey-road-forum.html

Right now my forum is embedded in a frame. Nabble is talking about introducing "templates" which will allow users to have complete control of html.

As soon as that happens I'm going to be back here combing through these comments trying to figure out how to get the same look I have now, without the frame, linking directly to the subdomain that holds my forum. I think I might be able to do what Divya suggests for the child-blog without having another blog. I hope.

While the current setup is pretty good for SEO the straight subdomain setup should be much better.

Hello Divya Sai,

It doesn't matter whether you publish my comment or delete it.
I'm full drunk while typing this comment to you.

If you are a friend known to me, i would have smashed your head for publishing such an bullshit tutorial to the readers.

"STEP #2:
Create a new forum at Nabble: Free Forums at Nabble [You will do this within 5 minutes]
Copy the HTML code..."

WHERE IS THE HTML CODE IN NABBLE TO BE COPIED ???
I found only the java script (embedding options).

STEP #4:
And immediately ABOVE/BEFORE it, paste the code you got from Nabble, with this ADDITIONAL code (Highlighted in BLUE and RED):
< b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html"'>
PASTE_CODE_FROM_NABBLE_HERE
< / b:if >

WHERE SHOULD I REPLACE THE HTML CODE,
(OBVIOUSLY UNKOWN, WHERE TO FIND THE HTML CODE) ???
Still, if known, why the hell i copied the html code ??? And where should i paste the HTML CODE ??? ???

EXACTLY AN INCORRECT EXAMPLE TO SHOW: (the red code)
http://bloggerstop.net/p/bloggerstop-community.html
must be something similar to what i find instead of your domain name.net/p/xxxxx.html

To conclude:
This tutorial was not usefull to a dumbhead like me !
(I can see you have got 116 comments previoulsy before i post this)

Once again,
It doesn't matter whether you publish this comment or delete this,
I appreciate your help to assist me more to set up a blogger forum on my bog.

Also i want to mention about the content theif you have mentioned:
funkruti.com :
I have already complained about this blog for stealing contents to google,
But till now there has been no action against this blog.

And it's an unhappy news to state that one of my good blogs has been deleted by google without any intimation to me stating that it's a spam blog. I have appealed to restore, but till now there is no responde from their side. I guess they still need more advanced in technologies.

I'm sorry for being arrogant,
I have spent a lot more time reading your tutorial (wasting my time) and ended up unable to find a solution to set up a blogger forum. Now i have to google again to find a solution.

Do you think i will visit your site again ????????????????????

But i have subscribed to your comments to know about your reply.

Thanks & Sorry,
Baba

Is this workiing In Firefox? It works fine in the widget html but not in the acturall html of the site.

I have followed the tutorial correctly and was told to clear catch and old files.

It works fine in Internet Explorer but not in Firefox or even ubuntu operating system.


The forum laods in Firefox but it is not clickable. I want to keep the code in the main html code because it widens the forum.

Does anyone have this problem with Firefox?

@Laurentiu,

Don't paste the code in your post/page, you have to paste the code in the template.
Paste the code from nabble, ABOVE this line in your template:

<div class="main-outer">

And instead of code from STEP #6, use this code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://regisipioni.blogspot.com/p/forum-regisipioni.html"'>
<style type='text/css'>
#main-outer {
display:none !important;

Thanks for the answer, but it's working ... wrong.
I put the code from nabble ABOVE (div class='main-outer')
and then I put the code with "if" from you
ABOVE (/head) from template.
The result:
the page http://regisipioni.blogspot.com/
and the page http://regisipioni.blogspot.com/p/forum-regisipioni.html
are the same, with the nabble forum. I think the if condition is not working.
I let the page unchanged (with your last codes) to see.

Now the pages with blog and forum are working well.

WOW! I cannot praise you enough for this article! You helped me out so much! I am a newbie blogger and I really wanted a forum for my blog to encourage open conversations between viewers. Your instructions were so precise and so well laid out, even for a html code beginner! LOL! I have to laugh at myself because one of the most amazing things for me was discovering that you can hit "F" + "CTRL" and FIND the code in your template. I had been looking through all this code each time I made edits over the last two weeks and had no clue that I could do a search! I was thinking how much I hate Blogger for not having one...lol...so thank you for that too! :) This post was such a help! Thanks!!!

Step #2 unfortunately doesn't work. There is no embedding option in that drop down menu. :(

Thanks for your expertise and walk through, you made it easy for me to add a forum to my blog. I however have lost the "pages" gadget on my forum page, and readers cannot return to my blog and other pages unless they click on my header. I would like my blog to show pages under the header, just like your blog does.

Please help!

Yes that's possible.
Once you have embedded the forum, Log in and go to Options -> Editor and Change Appearance. From the available skins, select the one you like.

Question. I added the code from Step #4 to a new page and have manually linked it to my menu bar without a gadget. I've attempted implementing Step #6 but I can't get it to work. I'd like the sidebar content to go away when the forum/page is open.

Help.

@Anil

In your blog, you'll have to paste the code immediately ABOVE this code:

<div id='main-wrap1'><div id='main-wrap2'>
