Adding a Forum

With Website Builder, you can add a forum to your website to let visitors create discussions and post comments in discussion threads.

When you add a forum to your website, it counts toward the number of pages used in your Website Builder plan. For example, if your Website Builder plan includes 10 pages, when you add a forum to your Website, you have 9 remaining pages to use when building your website.

  1. Log in to your GoWebsite account.
  2. In your Products list click Website Builder, and then click Manage next to the account you want to use.
  3. If you are working in the Page Designer, click Exit Designer.
  4. From the Add-Ons menu, select Forum.
  5. In the Set Up Forum Domain page, select from the following:
    • Create a new subdomain - Lets you set up your forum as a subdomain of your Website Builder domain name.
    • Select an available domain from your account - Lets you select a different domain from your account.
    • Enter a domain not registered here - Lets you enter a domain that is registered with another Registrar.
