What's the URL?  It will help us if we can see what you are talking about.

In my browser they are shown the same,- all of them =  but there are small margins on the right and left.
But it is possible to set it in the blog.

Re: Embedded forum

If, by margins, you refer to the fact that the forum displays a little narrower than the header area of your blog, then that is something to be adjusted in your blog. The forum is filling 100% of the space allowed for it in your blog.

How to delete a gadget from blog7
When I press the name of blog in my blog at any page it goes to main page, which is blank for now.
I want to make it without hyperlink, like it is here

https://confessionsofanawakenedyouth.blogspot.com/

for example.

also I like those nice buttons = home and forum, how to create them?

This is a Nabble Support forum.

You seem to be talking about facilities within blogspot.com. You need to turn to blogspot's help for that.

What CMS is Nabble based on?

Re: Embedded forum

It's not based on any other CMS. It is a completely independent platform written in its own language, NAML, Nabble Application Markup Language.

Rather than a Content Management System I would say it is better consider it Forum software which I would consider to be a separate class.

I haven't used any blogging software so can't offer comparative reviews. That includes Nabble's Blog app, but I have a number of sites that use the News app, which is closely related. You can read about the differences at:
http://greghelp.991552.n3.nabble.com/The-Journal-Apps-td4012839.html

While I have never run a Nabble app as a blog, I have just converted one that I no longer maintain regularly (Options > Application  Change application type) to that type so you can see what it might look like:
http://rustonhouse.1088553.n5.nabble.com
_________________________

EDIT: As a result of the change, you may see some {summary} tags at the start of some entries as I had taken advantage of the special facility available for News apps - as explained on the Journal Apps page of my GregHelp site.
_________________________

All my News apps are embed in other sites and I use the "Narrow" option to remove the side bar, so mine don't look like the illustrations on my GregHelp site. Here are two examples:
http://www.bb4er.org.uk/news.php
http://www.gregafloat.org.uk/blog/index.html

As for attracting regular visitors and subscribers. If you're in a crowded market it is difficult to stand out from the crowd. It's much easier if you run a web site that is for something highly specialised.

One of my sites is for a type of yacht of which sold less than 500 units over 30 years and has been out of production for 20. I have the monopoly on sites that provide information on that boat and I attract contributers to the forum from across Europe and the United States and had had contributions for the site from as far afield as the Canary Isles and Australia.

Try looking for guidance on search engine optimisation. Avoid the charlatans who will charge you vast sums for techniques of dubious merit.

I haven't truly been part of this conversation, but I've been kibitzing so will now chime in.

My forum is essentially one year old and I have 170 users, and growing by 1 or 2 a week.  The forum is embedded in a website that is the world's best for information on Ford's "Bullnose" (1980-86) trucks.  [There's no other such website so mine must be the best.  ]  So, as Greg said, the website is for a very narrow "market".

And, I've done a lot of reading about SEO, meaning Search Engine Optimization.  That's certainly helped and I get about 64 visitors a day from just Google searches - and I know that by having embedded a set of code in the footer from Google so I can use their Analytics.  That lets me not only see what they are searching for and from whence they've come, but also how high on the page my site is in the search results, and many other things.

Further, I "market" my site via Facebook.  I tried using their advertising services but that didn't do much good, so I've joined over 10 different Facebook pages that cater to Ford trucks.  And I watch for people asking questions which my site can answer, and then I give them a link to the correct page on the site.

But recently I set up a poll on my forum asking my users how they found us.  Currently there have been 18 votes:

  12 found us from another forum where people have shared a link to my site and decided to join

  4 found us from a search for info, like via Google or Bing, and decided to join

  2 voted for "other", and that turns out to be people I've specifically invited

  0 have to come to us from Facebook.


On those results I'm about ready to discontinue the Facebook effort.  I think I've learned that there are "forum types" and there are "Facebook types", and they don't change.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Re: Embedded forum

Many forums use BBCode to include images and produce headings and bulleted lists. Maybe your example does. On Nabble you check the "Message is in HTML Format" box and use HTML. I have done that at:
http://greghelp.991552.n3.nabble.com/The-Loosely-Structured-Apps-td4012837.html
where you will see images, different size headings and bulleted lists.

All software has pros and cons. Nabble's great advantage is that it can be embedded seamlessly in another site. If you don't need that feature then other software may be better for your purpose.

No. It would require creating an entire interpreter for the language and  - if it is even possible - anyone who has that skill would find it just as easy to use HTML.

Besides which the need for it is extremely doubtful. Nabble already provides the ability to insert quotes (optionally with attribution) images and videos, headings, bold and italic text and links. The only feature that the example site you pointed to also used was bullted lists and that is easily produced within Nabble with a liitle CSS code added to a forum. I provide instructions at:
