This isn't a support question, but I just want to say WOW and thank you. I have searched for something like this forever and knew I couldn't program it. It is exactly what I envisioned but could not develop.
The problem with starting a new forum is that there are no comments. Who wants to join a party in an empty room. But, most bloggers have comments that have been left on their blog posts. This is the perfect way to start up a forum with some activity and then share the forum activity back in the blog. Perfect integration! Now discussions scattered throughout a blog can be consolidated in a forum.
Thank you VERY much!
