(1) Members who go straight to the forums could find an article by seeing it in the "What's new" list.Is it really worth using forum threads for comments when running CMS alonside board? Apart from comments being searchable from inside forum, what are the other benefits of such integration?
Guest Commenting, a very important issue.What would be ideal for me would be the ability to allow guests to comment on the article from the home page but not show up on the forum discussion
First, such a set-up is user unfriendly because forum threads do not display articles. It's just links to them. So, users have to leave forum to read articles. Much like directing readers to a different site.Can you think of any drawbacks of Article comment integration with the forums ?
Why not ?First, such a set-up is user unfriendly because forum threads do not display articles.
