Hello everyone, how are you? This is my first time posting here, because I'm at my wits end finding a solution, so I'm asking for help.
As my blog gets more traffic, and more folks comment on it -- which is AWESOME -- I'm starting to think that merely having comments isn't the most efficient way of fostering a community. Now the primary purpose of my blog is the content, but I love the discussions going on in in the comments so I've also been thinking of expanding the blog to have a forum.
My ideal forum, therefore, would be one that integrates with the blog, in such a way that it:
- Creates a new forum thread for each post.
- Syncs comments with the forum thread
- Also allows for separate threads and forums.
So it's a seamless experience. So far the only thing I've found that does this is a plugin for bbpress that's three years old, so I'm wary of that. Might anyone here know of another solution that does what I'm looking for?
