Tip: Add a forum to your Jimdo site

It couldn't be simpler: just sign up for a free forum at Forumotion and you can add it to your Jimdo site! If you've been looking for a way to do this, just head over to Forumotion now and you can get started.

Step 1: Insert a new Widget / HTML element.

Step 2: Copy and paste the code below, replacing the URL with the url for your forum

    <iframe width="800" height="1000" frameborder="0" marginheight="0"  
marginwidth="0" src="http://xxx.forumactif.net/"></iframe>

Note: Don't forget to replace xxx.forumotion.com with your forum's address!

How can I change the size of the forum on my website?

Unfortunately, it's not possible to change the size of the forum. You do have the following options...

 

  • Change the layout of your Jimdo site to allow for a larger main content area. For example:
Select a layout that has a wide main content area
Select a layout that has a wide main content area
  • You can adjust the size of the embedded section by editing the HTML code above. For example:


Where it currently says width="800" height="1000" as the dimensions, you could reduce it to  width="500" height="700". This makes the forum smaller (and maybe it'll fit better on the page) but your visitors may have to scroll horizontally and/or vertically in order to see everything. It's not perfect, but in short, your site does gain some interactivity. ;-)

    Definitely easy to implement. Mine is already online (and very empty !) under www.fliegelsfilme.com. I hope this forum-thingy gets how-to in the forum. I still need to adjust a few things...
    But thanks anyway and keep up the good work

    Ciao, sul tuo libro degli ospiti non puoi inserire registrazioni di utenti, possono commentare tutti ma puoi impostare la moderazione dei commenti, decidere quindi se accettarli o meno.

    ciao! :)
