Blog posts create forum threads? (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I am using WordPress and phpbb3. I know of a few websites that have their blogs/forums setup so whenever they make a blog post, a forum thread is automatically created where users can post comments. Right now, I have to manually create each thread and add the links myself, which is pretty tedious. I have searched the phpbb/wp site and forum but was unable to find anything. Is there a plugin or something like this available that maybe I overlooked?

    I already posted over on the phpbb forum and they said it would require more from wordpress so there was nothing they could do.

    Appreciate any info!

    Seems showing phpBB threads on your blog is possible, rather than writing WordPress posts to phpbb.

    See other topics:

    Thanks for the links, however I was unable to find anything. I don't want to show phpbb on my blog. I just simply want a script or mod or something so when I publish a new wordpress blog, it will create a post in my forum.

    For example, this is a blog/forum site that automatically does this - http://www.stevepavlina.com/forums/steve-pavlina/28955-succeeding-helping-others-succeed-blog.html

    This forum post was generated when he published his blog post - http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2009/02/succeeding-by-helping-others-succeed/

    He didn't have to do anything. I'm not sure how he got it to work, but I've seen it on a few other sites as well. There has to be a mod or something out there, I just haven't been able to find it.

    Thanks

    Maybe Mr Pavlina would tell you how he does that.

    vbulletin actually has a function that publish rss feeds to forum posts.

    check on phpbb if they have a similar feature.
