Can I build a forum in Knack?

Hello, apologies for the silly question. But are the tools in Knack able to create a forum like this one or do I need to use an outside or third party service?

Hi Casey,

Yes! With Knack, it’s possible to create a simple forum-like platform where people can create posts and comment on them, and send direct messages to each other.

Just to be clear though, if you’re looking for a more advanced forum experience with features like mentions (“@”), real-time notifications, and so on, it might be better to go with dedicated software like the one this forum is built on, which is Discourse.

That being said, if you’re already using Knack for your business and just want to add a simple forum to your site, it could be built with Knack.
