Website comments are integrated with Discourse

You’ll notice new posts in the Big Daddy Linux category that are created from posts on the main website. Rather than using the built in WordPress comments system or a third party like Disqus, I am using Discourse instead.

The way this works:

  1. A new post is published on the website.
  2. The website makes a call to Discourse, creating a new post.
  3. Replies to this post on Discourse are displayed on the website in the comments section.
  4. People wishing to make comments on the post are directed to the forum.
