A forum allows visitors to your site to interact with both you and other visitors. A forum can be used to start conversations, ask questions, and post pictures / link to files.
The built-in Weebly forum is provided by Tal.ki. If you prefer to use another forum, you are welcome to do so as long as it's an embeddable forum. Any such forum can be added to your site through the use of our Custom HTML Element. If you're not sure if a forum is embeddable, just ask the forum provider.
To add a Tal.ki forum to your site, drag the Tal.ki element (found under the More section) to a page.
This forum will start with one member (you). If you don't like the avatar / icon image that Tal.ki assigns to you, change it by using the Edit Profile link.
The forum starts with two default sub-forums: News and Off-topic.
If you want to add new sub-forums or rename the two defaults, go to the Forum Admin section. Then select the Forums tab from within that section;
You can start a new sub-forum using the provided fields and button, rename or delete a sub-forum using the links to the left of each and change the listed order of the forums by clicking and dragging them.
You can start a topic for any sub-forum by clicking the Start a Topic button on the main page or within any of the individual sub-forums.
After you start a topic, any of your members will be able to post new content to that topic while they're reading it.
But how does someone log in and become a member of your forum? When a visitor sees your forum, they can log in with a Weebly account (should they have one) or log in using a number of other options.
These log in options include Facebook, Twitter, Google and nine other systems. It'd be pretty hard for a site visitor to not see an option they could use to log in.
