Create discussions spaces or a Forum on squarespace 7.1

Question

Hello dear squarespace fellows !

I would like to create a folder or a page allowing me to propose a thematic exchange forum to my visitors (possibly with a prior registration request).
Have you found a way to do that?
Is it possible to plug such a solution from a third party site (ie. zapier or an open source / free solution easy to implement)?


I'll tell you right away that I'm not a computer scientist and have no notion of code, but I can understand and apply a lot of things!

I thank you in advance for your help

(DeepL is my best friend because my English remains limited, poor French that I am!)

Follow what Squarespace did when they created this forum - use a third party solution like Invision Community, Discourse or Flarum. You can use your website's domain name (just like Squarespace did) and it will appear to be running on the same website.

Hi Eric,

You can also try Website Toolbox. You can embed the forum into squarespace, it has single sign on, matches your domain name, and doesn't require any software to be installed.

I hope that helps. Good luck!

George

@paul2009 Would this be easy for anyone to integrate or would you need to have advanced coding knowledge?

Anyone can set up one of these using their website domain name. Coding isn't necessary unless you need to customise it beyond the built-in settings (very much like Squarespace). They'll provide instructions to help you add some domain name entries so that your forum can be forum.your-domain-name.com whilst your Squarespace website is www.your-domain-name.com.

Do you think this would be a better option?

I cannot comment on this particular service as I haven't used it. If it were me, I'd select a couple of products and then take advantage of their free trials to test them out first.
