Comment section being equal to a forum

By Nicolas Chavardès @locnais2021-03-14 10:46:32.522Z

Hello guys,

Hard to title this so let me explain ;)

I'm starting a podcast company, and I want that every episode has a comment section, and that this comment section to be a thread of my forum !
So, my community can comment directly from the comment section... and also follow up the threads directly from the forum.

Is this possible? Easily from someone like me that use elementor and shit?

Thank you ;)

    Hi Nicolas,

    Yes and Maybe:

    every episode has a comment section, and that this comment section to be a thread of my forum !

    Yes: This is one of the things Talkyard is meant to be good for. Meaning, a website with blog posts, or podcast episode pages, (or something else), with embedded comments. Plus, the same discussions and comments appearing as threads ("topics" in Talkyard) in the forum.

    Maybe: There's not yet any Talkyard comments plugin for WordPress. Elementor is a WordPress theme or plugin, right? So, as of now, you'd need to somehow copy-paste HTML tags that look something like this:

    <scrip>...</script>
    <div class="talkyard-comments">...</div>
    

    into your WordPress installation — probably into a PHP file, where the comments are supposed to appear, I think.

    If you know a bit about WordPress and PHP, this'd be somewhat simple & straightforward, but otherwise I'm afraid it can be complicated.
