For my app having a community forum alla Bubble has here would be awesome, however I saw @levon the Zeroqode forum and noticed the distinct resemblance to the Bubble one: Is there a Template out there We can use to insta add a forum to our apps?
It is a bit a lazy question, but building it from scratch feels like a serious undertaking…
Hey, just to come back to this post. I’ve built my first webapp on bubble, and would like a forum attached to it. I can set up a Digital Ocean server and install discourse I’m sure… but how would I forward the people to this seperate server?
For example, I currently have www.mysite.com, and would want the forum at forum.mysite.com, can I do this? A quick search suggests I can’t have subdomains, but from the way you’re describing things @lantzgould, it seems you’ve overcome this?
Adding a sub-domain would be through your domain registrar, not through Bubble. Check out my video tutorial above, and you’ll see I simply add an ‘A’ record (my sub-domain) to point to the server address that Digital Ocean gives me.
In Bubble, for example; I just had a button or link that takes the user to the forum page in a separate tab or same window. You can also customize the Header of the discourse forum to keep the same look/feel as your Bubble app if you wanted as well.
