How to incorporate a Google forum into blog?

Once I saw a thread in Old BHF:How Do I? I advised to use Google groups. Now extending this idea, The forum can be embedded inside your blog pages/posts/widgets etc., All you need to do is Create a Google Forum.
  1. After creating, copy the below code,
    <iframe id="forum_embed"
            src="javascript:void(0)"
            scrolling="no"
            frameborder="0"
            width="600"
            height="700"><br />
    </iframe><br />
    <br />
    <script type="text/javascript">
      document.getElementById("forum_embed").src =
          "https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/?place=forum/thetroubleshooters" +         
          "&showsearch=true&showpopout=true&parenturl=" +
          encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);
    </script>
  2. In the above code replace thetroubleshooters with your forum's link name.
  3. My forum's link is :
    https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/thetroubleshooters.
  4. Here the red colored thetroubleshooters is my forum's link name.
  5. Just find yours and replace it with mine.
  6. So, my forum is embedded in my blog here : http://www.krishnainfotron.x10.mx/p/comments.html#start.
