The benefits of creating your own forum

Having your own forum provides you a number of benefits. You can use discussion boards and groups to encourage a strong sense of community with your audience. Disciple’s platform allows you to steer the online discussion in any way you like, making content for your audience – highly relevant and engaging.

Creating your own forum also means you can easily block or remove users who don’t adhere to your community guidelines. Another great benefit of creating your own forum is that it’s much easier to make use of integrated features such as the number of monetization functionality that’s available, unlike on outdated forum software.

Frequently asked questions

How can I customise my forum software?

Wondering how to create a forum website from scratch? Forum creation is simple with Disciple’s highly customisable and user-friendly forum software.

Our modern forum software gives you the flexibility to design and structure your community space in a way that works for you. You can choose from a list of features and menu items. You can also apply your own branding, logos, and colours for a fully customised community experience.

Whether you’re a company that wants to provide a customer support platform, or simply someone who wants to grow their own personal online community, our software lets you build your forum with ease and flexibility. You can choose from a wide range of features, including various options for monetisation.

If you need help, we’ll guide you through the process of setting up your forum, or you can simply use one of our step-by-step guides.

How can I make money from creating a forum?

We have a range of flexible monetisation features for you to choose from. One option is our subscription model; your members will pay a monthly or annual fee to be part of your community. Or, you can set your community up as a paid download from app stores. That means you set the price and your members pay a one-off fee to download and join your community space. Our forum software comes with in-app purchases and freemium functionality, meaning you can put a paywall in front of any exclusive content or areas of your app. You can also use any combination of these monetisation options to make money in the ways that work for you and your community.

What is the price?

Our forum software works for communities of all shapes and sizes and is currently powering communities of 100 people and communities of 1 million people alike. Every community is unique and we want to make sure you’re not paying for features and hosting capacity that you don’t need. We’ll give you a personalised price based on your community size and feature requirements. After you complete the contact form below, you’ll have a chance to book a call with one of our Community Specialists to get your exact quote.

Will my existing community move with me to my new forum?

Migrating your community to your new forum may sound like a challenge. But here at Disciple, we help communities of all sizes migrate from social media, websites and mailing lists into their own, dedicated and highly interactive community spaces. We’ve got plenty of resources, best practices and guides to help make sure your community moves with you when you’re ready to go.

Why Choose Disciple

Forum creator software needs to fulfil the needs of your community, while at the same time being affordable and providing simple step by step implementation. Disciple Media’s forum creating software checks all the right boxes and has a proven track record few, if any, can match.

Robust Content Management

With our easy-to-use forum software, you retain widespread control over user-generated content. Why is that important? Because human nature being what it is, community forums tend to attract those with nothing better to do than bait others into arguments or spread caustic viewpoints or misinformation. Being able to freely moderate user activity enables you to make sure your forum is a place where positive, productive interaction is encouraged and enabled.

An Open Yet Secure Environment

Forum software developers have to balance the need for openness with an acute awareness of security threats, and the ability to fend them off; this isn’t easy. Many types of forum software come up short in this regard. But that’s not the case with Disciple. Integrated directly into the foundation of our software are some of the most effective security features you will find. Once you set up your forum they stand guard so you can get on with building a safe, lively online community.

An Impressive Feature Set

Here is just a small sample of Disciple Media’s outstanding feature set.

  • Messaging - Our messaging feature allows members to send private messages to other community members. No more need to use a 3rd party social media app.
  • Groups - You have the ability to segment your community into smaller groups of like-minded individuals, or individuals with the same interests or concerns.
  • Commenting - Disciple’s forum software allows both standard comments and threaded comments that enable more targeted discussion and interaction.
  • Push Notifications (mobile apps only) - Inform your community of important developments and special offers, or notify members when someone has responded to their comment.

If you're wondering how to create a discussion forum that's both cutting edge and affordable look no further than the versatility, security and leading-edge features of Disciple Media.
