Flarum Forum Integration

Recommended Posts

I am looking at adding a forum to my Squarespace site and I am thinking about using Flarum. It looks like it is a simple PHP/MySQL application and runs on any low-end shared host or VPS. I am wondering if this is easily hosted on squarespace along with my website or if it would be much better to create a subdomain and host it somewhere else and just link back to my squarespace site?

I'm also seeking to do the same. One solution is to add "website toolbox" which allows for seemless integration OR one could host a wordpress forum (there are many forum plugins available for wordpress and create a subdomain that attaches to your present site.

When I started looking at Flarum, I was automatically directed to use FreeFlarum which is a free service that is supposed to make setup easier. They host the forum for you, and you're supposed to be able to add a CNAME DNS records to use your own subdomain, but I haven't quite been able to make that work yet.

this forum exists on Squarespace it should be a function we can use!

This forum is hosted on an entirely separate platform. It is not hosted on Squarespace.
