Forums plugin/hack comments question (6 posts)

    Hi,

    What I want to do is at the bottom of every post have text and a link that says something like, 'to discuss this post visit out discussion forums' or something similar and have it link to that.

    I also want to keep the comments section below each post.

    Will a plugin achieve this feature or would it be a code modification in one of the templates.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    Kenneth

    Would the link be just a general link to your forums? That's a simple edit to your WP theme, but I have a feeling that's not quite what you mean.

    With the wphpbb plugin you can have all discussion in the forums. What it does is replicate your topic from wordpress and place it as an entry in the forum. All comments are made in the forum, but it pulls the comments from the forum post and places them in the wordpress entry as if it was made in wordpress. In fact, it even has the reply form in the blog!

    akbigdog,

    From the way you replied, I think that is exactly what I want...something I can code into the theme where it will appear in each post as a link.

    Do you know what to do here? I have no idea.

    Thanks.

    Well, if that's really what you're looking for...

    Your WP theme probably has a file called single.php. Open this in a text editor. Search for "comments_template();." Immediately before this, enter your link:

    <p class="forum-link"><a href="http://yousite.com/forum/">'to discuss this post visit out discussion forums' or something similar</a></p>

    Make sure to not enter this code inside an open PHP block.
