I installed the latest release of ExpressionEngine on this site along with the Discussion Forum module. I was pleased to see that when you create a blog entry you can also at the same point in time create a forum entry or link your blog post to an existing forum entry.
This is illustrated in the diagram below:
In the case where the forum topic already exists you will need to specify the Forum topic ID. How do you know the Forum Topic ID? Go to a specific forum posting and look at the URL. If you’re using the standard forum installation options it should look something like this http://www.richardbyrom.com/index.php/forum/viewthread/1/
To ensure your blog entry is linked to the forum post you will have to enter some code into your template as specified here in the documentation.· Email this article · Comments (0) · Permalink · Categories:
