Using / installing talkyard as the comment system for a wordpress site
Hello, just like discuss, how would we use talkyard as the comment system for our wordpress website? I get that we would need a separate talkyard server, but then how do we integrate the comments to show up / be part of the wordpress comment system?

Hello, right now you'd embed HTML tags, probably in a PHP template. The tags look something like this: (but don't copy-paste — this won't work with your website's URL)
And you need to edit a config setting, here:
your-talkyard-server/-/admin/settings/embedded-commentsand type the address to your blog (for security reasons, so websites other than your own, cannot embed your comments).
I'd like there to be a WordPress plugin so people didn't need to edit PHP code themselves to insert the HTML tags. I haven't created one yet though. (There're custom instructions for Hugo, Gatsby, Jekyll ... but not WordPress this far)
B.t.w. how do you host your WordPress blog? Is it also self hosted? And how do you provide HTTPS for your blog? (Maybe Traefik? Or Nginx? and a cert via Let'sEncrypt?)
Hi Kaj, Blog / Site is self-hosted. Let's Encrypt for cert. Wordpress plugin would be great... so many users out there... will have to try and see where this would go, dont edit the php much at all.
Ok. Let'sEncrypt with Certbot then I'm assuming (?). Can I ask, which WordPress theme do you use? ... Sometimes a plugin that makes changes to how WordPress looks (I mean, adds an embedded comments iframe), can be compatible with some themes, and not others, ... if I remember correctly, from when I did just a little bit WordPress work many years ago.
