Adding a Forum to your site (third-party service {Muut} // tutorial)

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I have seen a lot of posts on this subject, today I will show you how to add a forum to your Squarespace 7 site by using a third-party service called • Muut ( http://muut.com/ ) •

Muut gives you the option to create a discussion board, and provides you with the embed code to share it on your site.

The service is free, although if you want a custom domain option and more styling option, you will have to purchase a premium plan.

In this video, I have shown you how you could add it to your Squarespace site (to display the forum, so the code renders, you will have to either go incognito or be logged out of your site):

Here you can see an example: MUUT FORUM

To render the code, you will have to do one of the following:

1 • Browse in incognito mode (this will not work, if you are also logged in incognito mode).

2 • Be logged out of your site

3 • Use another browser

Sell crazy some place else, we are all stocked up here

For those of you that do this, please be aware if you embed this into a forum page under a password protected navigation section on your site, that the entire passworded section will no longer be passworded. You can go directly to the forum page under your domain name and the entire passworded section is accessible. I have done this. It will not work as a viable entry point to that section through that passworded forum, it will be available to all. You have to password the forum page also.
