When you create a new blog post, it creates identical (title, content) topic in selected forum and keeps synchronizing these entries. New comments under the Post will be automatically posted as replies under the connected (cross-posted) Topic and vice versa (new replies of this Topic will be automatically posted as comments under the connected Post). In case if you already have a Blog Post with some comments, it’ll crossposts the post and all comments once you enabled crossposting for this post.
