A forum widget will help you to improve user engagement and retention rate. Here is a quick guide to embed a free forum on your blogger/blogspot blog. Most of the websites were suggesting to add a forum using Nabble. Adding free forum widget to my blogger/blogspot blog without Nabble is easier and effective. Here we will be using Google Forum Script to add a forum to your blogspot blog.
I followed all the instructions on Nabble website and tried to install the forum. Unfortunately when I pasted last bit of code, I got the following error.
