    You can use the "send post data" feature to get the submission data posted on your site. After that you would need to write the code to populate these data to your forum. So, you need to write some code or hire someone.

    To see how "send post data" works:
    To see how it works:
    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    <? print_r($_POST); ?>
    2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
    4. Save and submit your form.

    That's PHP code.

    So, the answer is no. You cannot post the form submissions on the forum.

    Great software. I have a quick question. I see you track the ip of users making submissions. Does this get posted to a thankyou page if I have the "send post data" option sent?

    Thank you

    No, it is not included on Send Post Data. Only Form ID, Submissions ID and the answers are included.
