How do I add a forum to my Marketplace?


Adding a 3rd party Forum to your Near Me marketplace is simple and easy. For our example, we will add a forum using Google Groups following the steps; HERE.

Step 1

Make sure you are signed into Google and then navigate to Google Groups 

If you have not already, create a group for your marketplace. In our example we will name it INeedaNew

In our example, we will create a page called Forum and add the forum to that page. After creating the page, we will simply add the following code to our content section replacing forum-name with INeedANew (you would replace it with the name of your group)

<iframe id="forum_embed"
src="javascript:void(0)"
scrolling="no"
frameborder="0"
width="900"
height="700">
</iframe>
	

<script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById("forum_embed").src ="https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/?place=forum/INeedANew" + "&showsearch=true&showpopout=true&parenturl=" + encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);
</script>

Your results will look like
