Within my wpForo I have two forums: ‘Announcements’ & ‘News’. I want to be able to post a new post in a forum and for it to be also displayed in box on the front page of my site. that is if I post a new post in the Announcement forum it appears in the Announcement box and News in the News box. It would be useful if I could specify the number of posts that are displayed. I’m using Elementor with the OceanWP theme to create my pages. Would your Blog Cross Posting add-on do this.

Hi metuza,

I’m sorry but I’m not an SEO expert, so I can’t say an exact answer here. However, I can say that it’s not required to have a duplicated cross-posted content in Blog and in Forum. You can change the content of first post content of cross-posted topic (make it just an intro of the main blog post, or something else), you can disable Forum to blog cross-posting and only enable blog to forum cross-posting (move some engagement from blog to forum), so all topics and replies will be unique in Forum topics and in Blog Posts. Also, people will start opening new topics and new discussions, this will bring more unique content for website SEO.

Hello,
Hello, i am interested in buying your plugin. Before i do that, i have an iportant question:

When i write a new blog article a new Topic will be opened in my Forum – thats really great – that is exactly what i Need für my blog.

What happens if i make a new artikle which should appear in the same blog-thread like the former one.

For example: I blog about the stock “Apple”. If this is the first article about Apple, than it is ok when this post appears under a new Topic in my Forum. But what happens when i write another article about Apple? Is it possible to manage, that this article should appear in the existing “Apple”-Thread in my Forum?

Thx for your help

tom

Is it possible to manage where the post should appear in the Forum ?

Support

Please note, that articles become topics and comments become topic replies (posts). There is no way to crosspost an article as reply to topic (post). If you create second article in Apple it’ll be posted as second topic.

Hi! I’m excited about WPForo, and this add-on. I’ve read all the Pre-Sales Q&A here, and I think I have my answer, but wanted to verify.

I have a business directory. The theme handles all the directory listing submissions, etc, as CPTs. The users won’t have access to the WP environment, so they can’t select Forums to cross-post in.

As I understand it, it’s manual. An admin will edit the directory listing “page” information in the WP back end, select the correct forum, which enables the cross-posting feature. The plugin will create the post in the Forums, and sync any comments.

Do I have that right?

For me, that’s perfect. I definitely want to do the cross-posting manually.

Support
9 months 6 days ago

Hi Jeff,
Only “comments to forum reply” and “forum reply to comments” cross posting is automatic. The WP Post to Forum Topic is manual and only available for admins, editors and authors. There is no way to do that on front-end. Also please note, that there is no Forum topic to WordPress post cross-posting. Only WP Post to Forum Topic is available (no vice versa). In your case you can cross-post CPT to selected Forum as a Topic.

I’d like to run the forum comments right next to my blog post. The topic shortcode is available but there doesn’t seem to be a way for me to find out the topic ID of the cross topic. Where can I locate the topic IDs?

Support
10 months 14 days ago

I’m sorry but I don’t follow you what do your mean saying “forum comments”? Forum doesn’t have comments. It has Topic and Replies. Comments and Articles/Posts are Blog components. If you use this addon, new Articles will automatically copied in Forum as Topic. Also New comments under the Article will be copied (cross-posted) under the according Forum Topic and vice versa.

You’ll get duplicated content if you load the topic/replies on the source (cross-posted) Article page. The first post of the topic will be identical with Article content. The replies will be identical with Article Comments. I don’t think this is a good idea.

Does this mean that for every post created, I have to turn the addon on as I create them? Can this be an automatic thing so that every post created creates a corresponding forum entry automatically?

Support

Posts are not being created automatically so the cross-posting is not automatic process. The plugin is always on, you don’t need to turn it on. When you create a new post you just need to select the target forum name on right sidebar (forum dropdown menu) and it’ll be cross-posted.

Hi joon,
This doesn’t have direct relation to Ultimate Member and myCRED. This is just a cross-posting plugin, it’s not profile integrator or something like that. But the post/comment/topic/reply statistic will be correctly updated for forum and blog profiles as well. Thus myCRED points will be also updated based on cross-posted content (if you’ve enabled pot/comment based awards).

Hi Eric,
Please find my answers below:

What happens if you’re using Disqus?

Disqus is a 3rd party comment system, it stores all comments in its own server not in your WordPress database, there is no way to do cross-posting with Disqus. You should use wpDiscuz Comment Plugin or Native Comment System.

And what happens if a non-registered forum user posts a comment in a blog post?

This addon is compatible with Guest Commenting. It creates reply in cross-posted topic without any problem. Reply generates with Guest name and Guest title.

Hi Tony,
Each post should be turned on for cross-posting manually, but it’ll automatically synchronize previous comments once the post is manually turned on. Just edit the post you’d like to cross-post and select target forum, then save it.
You can edit/update Post and cross-posted Topic they will be automatically synchronized.
