Ours is a Diabetes Forum. In the days of Covid most people are not interested in other health issues anyways. Plus, with all the social networking sites Forums are suffering anyways. But we must try, and I'm in the process of building a You Tube Channel to promote the Forum, if it will work.

Same for me.  I've set up an auto-post (RSS) forum updates to a forum related twitter account and use my signature on any forum I post. The difficulty is most users tend to prefer FB group or pages for discussion instead of the forum but will continue to try and support forum and belive always a good alternative.
