Create new forum topic from a WP post?
Hey, everyone. I am looking for a solution to this and not sure if it exists. My search skills are coming up short so I apologize if it’s out there already.
I would like to have a link/button on each of my posts in WordPress that would allow the user to generate a new topic in a particular bbPress forum. Essentially, it would auto-fill the title of the topic with the title of the post and quote the contents of the post (perhaps to a certain limit). The user would then be able to add any additional comments before submitting the new topic to the forum.
Now, of course you are going to ask WHY I want to do this. Essentially, the site I’m building consists of two parts. One, a discussion forum, and two, an rss aggregator that creates a new post for each article brought in from the feed. I would like the user to have the option of bouncing any article/post they think is worthy of discussion to the forum. (I’m not looking to have a discussion on every single post, and I don’t want to use comments under the post, keeping it all to the bbPress forums.)
I’d appreciate any help that would point me in the right direction. Thanks.
