Welcome to Community Forums for Confluence!

In this short guide, you learn how to easily and quickly create a forum, whether it's for a project, team, or company-wide discussion. The Community Forum blueprint allows you to instantly create a forum with the topic Status, Title, Author, Number of Views, Number of Replies, and Last Activity Date columns. You can customise these settings at any time as well as create a forum using the Custom Configuration option in the blueprint. Once set up, users can then add or comment on topics, search for, and make topics sticky (pinned to the top). 

To create a forum using the forum blueprint, complete the following steps: 

  1. Navigate to the space and page where you want to add your forum.
  2. Click the Create from Template button in the top ribbon.
  3. In the Create window, select the Community Forum blueprint then click Next. This displays the Forum Configuration Setup window.

  4. Enter a title for your forum in the Forum Title field. This will also be your page title.
  5. Select the Default Configuration option, then click Next

  6.  Click Create in the Setup Complete window.

    Your forum is complete and ready to go! 

A Community Forum shortcut is added to your space sidebar where you can access your new forum and any other forums in the space. You can now edit this page like any Confluence page, for example, you can add a page description below the forum title.

To learn how to add topics or to configure your forum attributes and permissions, please see our other Get Started guides.
