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:
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.
