How to Create a Forum Website
Niche forum communities can be a great resource for news and professional development. Below we cover important steps to create a forum website.
Install a Forum Plugin
You can install many plugins that integrate forums into BoldGrid. Some more popular options:
Enable Free SSL to improve security for forum members.
Enable BoldGrid Backup and download backups regularly.
Strengthen email hosting to prevent spam and having emails marked spam.
Do you want part(s) of your forum threads to be private and unsearchable by search engines? You may need to edit your robots.txt file to block crawling agents. Contact your forum and security plugin developer(s) for more information on best ways to implement this.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Install WP Accessibility to make your forum easier to use for disabled users.
