What is an online community website
An online community website is a platform where a group of people with a shared interest or purpose interact with each other. Normally, online communities have their specific set of rules and guidelines of how the members engage with each other and the community content, what kind of behavior is and isn’t allowed within the community, and so on.
What are the types of online communities?
The following is a list of the most commonplace community types that can be found on the Internet today:
- Brand communities
- Knowledge and learning communities
- Support communities
- Fan communities
- Communities of action
- Networking communities
- Event communities
Can I create gated content inside the Community Website template?
Yes, it’s possible to create areas within the community that only a certain user group has access to.
Do I need a Softr account to use the template?
As soon as you click the Use the template button, you'll be immediately taken to Softr studio and can start working on the template. If you don't have a Softr account, you'll be prompted to register first (a Free account will work just fine).
Can I use the Community Website template with a free Softr account?
All the Softr templates are completely free of charge and can be used with any of the Softr subscription plans. However, Free and Starter plans have a limitation on the number of application users, so you might need to consider a higher subscription plan if you need to have full Memberships access.
What are the benefits of using Softr together with Airtable?
Our users decide to use Softr on top of Airtable bases for several reasons. The most common are:
- You will have a responsible and professional-looking user interface to share with clients, colleagues, and users on your domain (included for free!)
- You will be able to manage different people's permissions at a granular level. Say goodbye to just "viewers" and "editors". You can decide which group of users can see and/or edit specific content.
- You can merge several data sources all in one application. Do you want to connect three tables to the same app? Do you want to get data from other sources too? Not a problem with a Softr application!
