Set up the Post Idea Widget
The Post Idea widget allows your users to post ideas directly to your public forums. When they type in their idea and click "Next", they'll be prompted with matching ideas from your forums. If they find an existing idea that matches they'll have the option to become a supporter.
Setting up the Post Idea Widget Code
Go to Settings -> Widgets
In Step 1, set the starting experience to Post Idea
Copy the code in Step 2
Add the widget code to your website
Add the code to your website right before the final </body> tag (for more details on how to add the widget code to your site, check out this article
Specifying a Forum
You have the option to specify a forum for the post idea widget. This will determine which relevant ideas are displayed in the instant answers feature, and also which forum that the user's idea will post to. If you do not specify a forum, the widget will use your default forum.
To specify a forum, add the forum ID to the widget code as shown below.
The post idea widget does not work with private forums.
forum_id: '209871', // Defaults to your account’s default forum
Managing your ideas
Now that users can post ideas, you'll want a way to organize and update them. You can add a public status to your ideas, tag them with internal labels, and add supporters.
If you want to keep new ideas private until they are approved by an admin, you can enable pre-moderation. Check out this article to learn more about the moderation feature.
