    hi guys

    I have a blog scabenga.co.uk and I would like to ad a forum to it so people can chat.
    I just have no idea about how to do it. could you please help me with maybe a plugin or an outsite app that i can use.

    Is it best with a plugin or are third party apps better?

    look forward to hearing some of your ideas

    i use simple:press. My site isnt near as well structured as yours however. How do you get the "social profile" on your site? that bar is something is need (besides a log in setup that I want so people become members) but yours seems to do ok without that.

    But yea how can I setup a social profiles bar on the right and how do u get the little icons representing them??!

    bbPress is an amazing plugin for creating a forum in to your WordPress website:

    And to GrimmTrixX:
    Try searching for 'social sharing widget' in the plugins-section; you'll find great stuff in there!

    Hey GrimTrixx

    Sorry for the late reply. The side bar came with the theme but I have found the same plugins and added to other blogs that I have started.

    Let me know how you get on.
