    Simple bulletin board

    Asked by MikeinCalgary on February 12, 2017 at 12:09 PM

    Hi  - I am trying to add a simple bulletin board to my site that members can add items for sale. Is there a widget or template that might be useful for this? I tried this widget to give you the idea. If I use this widget, is there a way to save the entries? It would have been nice to have a simple login for each person posting something so nobody else could edit or remove their post, but that might be too complex for this particular widget.

    We do not have a widget for that purpose. If you want to only show the items in a board, a way around this would be having the users submitting their items in a form, and creating a Grid List report, or HTML table report that you can embed your site through the Iframe code:

    Hi - ok. I set something up and it looks pretty good. I have a response email with a link at the bottom which allows the person to edit the post. Is there a way I can also allow them to completely delete the post? Here is the new form.

    No, they can not delete the data once it is submitted. You are the only one who can delete.
