Design Community is a community website template to bring people together online under one platform. It’s the perfect template to build and grow an online community in a certain niche. The platform members gain access to various member-only content, resource directories, events, jobs, perks, and spaces. Community members can also submit new events, spaces and resources, creating a truly interactive and open-sourced community.

Additionally, you can allow community members to update their bios, job postings, events, and spaces by enabling editing.

The template can be used to build any kind of a community platform, where you want the members to communicate with one another, exchange thoughts and experiences, share resources, post jobs in your niche, and so on. For instance, it can be a learning community around no-code such as the 100 Days Of No Code or a startup community for entrepreneurs such as the Founders Door.

How it works

To get started, you just need a Softr and Airtable accounts (both have free plans, which will do fine as a starting point in your project). After proceeding with the template, you’ll just need to import the template’s Airtable database into your Airtable account, and that’s it. You can now start working on the database, adding your own data, as well as customize the template’s look and feel. As soon as your community platform is ready, start promoting it and getting your first user registrations.

Proceed with the template and have your online community ready in minutes.


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.

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

Yes, it’s possible to create areas within the community that only a certain user group has access to.

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).

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.

I like the diversity of templates that are available and the thoughtfulness that has been taken in making the building process as simple as possible for non-coders.
