Your platform, your way

PeerBoard is a website add-on that allows users to bring discussions and content directly on your website rather than through a third-party service like Reddit or Facebook Groups. Unlike free plugins like bbPress and BuddyPress, which can be difficult to set up and customize, PeerBoard offers a modern experience that helps you deliver maximum value to your members.
In addition to enhanced functionality, robust user profiles, and unlimited usage, PeerBoard helps you ensure that your community space always looks and feels great for every user.
Public or private spaces
Whether you want to build a public support forum or a private space for your budding community, Peerboard offers a feature-rich environment that can be tailored to suit your needs.
PeerBoard's rich editor

WordPress review

“PeerBoard is the latest of a series of extremely useful WordPress plugins which allow website owners who have little or no knowledge of coding to create websites with features that were unimaginably complex just a few years ago. So far, my experience has been great. I could not be happier that I finally found a no-code solution to embedding an online community/forum within my existing WordPress website.”

"PeerBoard allowed us to organize a large community without the costs of the custom buildout. The main benefits are simplicity, friendly UX both for admins and members, and a highly responsive support team."

"I'm using PeerBoard on my WordPress for 6 months and so far so good. There is many ways to integrate it with WordPress and I finally chose to run Peerboard and wordpress side by side without the plugin (I use the API to create users). I don't have to worry about wordpress issues and Peerbaord is reliable and easy to customize."

"My team uses PeerBoard for community discussions, brainstorms, and internal blog posts. It was quick to set it up and easy to start with. We choose PeerBoard because it is highly customizable and flexible. I like that now we have all important discussions at one place, we can always read history and return to some questions. As admin, I actively use privacy controls and a members portal."

"I’ve tried a lot of wordpress plugins in my attempts to build an online forum. PeerBoard has by far been the most popular among my users. One of the best things about it is that having your own community platform means you have private folders within your platform that you can use to easily store your content - making being a part of your community a breeze."

"PeerBoard has a simplicity about it which makes it incredibly easy to use - both for the admins and the users. But this simplicity does not mean that it doesn't have what you need: share tools, algorithms to keep recent stuff visible, pinned posts, moderators, embed widgets, digests, white label/customization options - it is all possible with PeerBoard - and more features are on the way!"

"PeerBoard is a great online community platform! This is a solution that helps me organize questions and answers community around the product I am working on.

"Every online community that’s successful goes through a series of phases during its lifecycle which takes that community from its infancy towards accelerated growth. PeerBoard makes the initial stages of online community development quite simple. PeerBoard has allowed us to begin the process of creating our own white-label community platform, without paying the exorbitant monthly fees other alternatives seemed to charge."

"PeerBoard is a great Whitelabel community platform. It is easy to set up (no coding required), has all the necessary features, and intuitive interface. We use it internally for brainstorming, product discussions, and for collecting information and regulations. PeerBoard is mobile responsive, so I can use it on the go. The support team is helpful and fast. It is a pleasure to have a deal with them."

"The champion among the community platforms. The feature set is a perfect fit for our community. The interface is intuitive and user-friendly both for administrators and community members. It was not rocket science to start work with PeerBoard and to move our community there. I like that it provides lots of variations of setting up privacy controls and user groups. The support team is highly responsive."

Common questions

Is PeerBoard hosted as a part of my WordPress configuration?

Yes and no. PeerBoard is a cloud-based community platform, and your content is always hosted on our servers. This is true even when you use a custom domain and integration tools to connect the platform to your website.

Our WordPress plugin is designed to deliver our platform to your website using an interface that is compatible with WordPress so that you can make changes without ever leaving your CMS. A major benefit to this approach is that your content operates independently of your website. If you ever need to migrate your platform to any other configuration — from a custom domain to a custom-built website — you’ll be able to do so without losing your content or your members.

Can I automatically log members into PeerBoard if they are already logged into my WordPress website?

Yes. We automatically detect user sessions from WordPress. You can also automatically import users who haven’t opened your PeerBoard page by enabling this feature in your plugin settings.

Can I put PeerBoard behind a protected section of my website using a membership plugin?

Yes! PeerBoard is compatible with most membership plugins. You can treat your community as any page with subpages on your website.
