    Hello
    I was wondering if anyone knew a way to make it so that when you post in wp you can have the comments take you to a post on a forum for discussion? i suspect the forum post would need to be made first and then the article and possible just input the url to the forum post in a field somewhere in wp. any suggestions on how to do this?

    There is a mod for phpBB called "phpbb_fetch_all" which will let you insert data into the phpBB system automatically. I used this to shoehorn trackbacks-as-comments into phpBB. You could modify it to insert a WP post as a new phpBB post, then modify your WP index.php to take you to that post's forum.

    Ive been working on this for a few weeks and have something working. I modified an existing system which integrated MT and PHPBB, with PHPBB being the comment section.

    I wrote up some directions on how to do it. Its really rough and there are some minor problems, such as having to rename the two functions get_userdata and make_clickable.
    The tutorial is here:

    Anything for this? I love the idea but hours of searching have yielded nothing comprehensible or stable.

    My site is as http://www.indisputabletruth.net and the forums are http://www.indisputabletruth.net/forums, I'd really like to eliminate the standard comment system a la the blog linked here.

    ZachGates:
    I have created a plugin for WP that integrates the comment system and more. It is stable with a few site admins running it.

    Go to http://www.happypoet.com/hackery/wphpbb/ for more information.

    I am currently working on a new beta. Trying to streamline the program and add new functions.
