When you create a new blog post, it creates identical (title, content) topic in selected forum and keeps synchronizing these entries.

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.

There is no way to cross-post a forum topic to a blog post, so there is no way to do the same with a featured image as well. Please read this addon description, it only cross-posts blog posts to forum topic, not vice versa. Only the replies and comments can be cross-posted in both ways.

Hi Erdinç,
Thank you for your interest in wpForo addons. We’ve added hundreds of important and essential features in the free wpForo plugin so in most cases our users don’t need any addons. In case you need some addon, you can get them with discounts according to our Sale Packs: https://gvectors.com/gvectors-store-discounts-sale-packs/

The addon prices of popular WordPress plugins starts from $40, for example the Ultimate Members plugin. Another example is Yoast SEO plugin, its addons start from $69. You can even see prices from $150 for WooCommerce addons. wpForo addons prices starts from $11 up to $35. We don’t have any addon with more than $35 price, most of our addons prices are just $25. As you can see the highest price of our addons is lower than the start price of other plugins addons. That’s why we always say the wpForo addons prices are the most reasonable prices.

I want to know if what I think is possible.
1. The guest selects the A-category to create a post (using the Guest Post Plugin).
2. Auto cross posting automatically sets the A-category of the post to Forum A.

So, are guest-written posts automatically registered for the forum A?
In other words, I would like to check if it is possible for the guest to write on the front end.

Actually the posts written by guests will be crossposted in the forum once the admin approves the post. However the topic author will set as admin, but not the guest.

Hi zayo,

Please note the wpForo – Blog Cross Posting is not an importer tool. It just allows to synchronize website/blog content with forum content. If you want to migrate your forum and the old software is included in the list of available migration, you can use the Go2wpForo tool. Otherwise, you should contact professional forum migration services for custom migration. We only recommend gConverter or ProfProjects services for such projects. They have already done hundreds of forum to wpForo migration projects with the best result.

Current available cross-posting directions are:

1. Blog Post to Forum Topic
2. Post Comments to cross-posited Topic Replies
3. Cross-posited Topic Replies to according Post Comments

In other words, it creates new topic in forum according to your blog post, then it synchronize comments of that blog post with the cross-posted topic replies in two ways. New replies in topic will be cross-posted under blog post as comments and vice versa. But the blog post to forum topic only available one way.

Hi. Is there a rel canonical tag added to forum topic? I’m wondering if duplicating content on 2 different url-s wont be treated as duplicate content by G.

Support
2 years 2 months ago

Hi Dom,

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.

Guest
Kalee

To support what Dom said here, it would be ideal if the synced post/forum topic had a canonical link set to one or the other. Not only does it help with duplicate content but it would help with crawl budget as well. It would be ideal to have that feature from an SEO standpoint.

Support
2 years 4 months ago

Hi Phil,

The cross-posting add-on is designed to synchronize website/blog content with forum content. When you create a new blog post, it creates identical (title, content) topic in the 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).

Is WPDiscuz required for cross-posting?

No, the wpDiscuz is not required. The wpForo – Blog Cross Posting addon works without the wpDiscuz plugin as well. wpDiscuz is just a commenting plugin you can use to improve the commenting system of your website.

Hello, very interested in this plugin as well as your Discuz plugin. Is there any way to specify which sub-forum the crosspost is created in? I am building a site with a custom post type that holds videos and is separated by categories.. I have two user account permission levels and need the discussion to be split up so I can assign permissions to those forums as well. The permissions are no problem, it’s being able to define where the forum post is created is what is important.

I could create new custom post types for each permission level if I could assign where the forum post goes.

Yes, it will work with WP Engine, and the addon’s work does not depend on SSH access.

Hi Chusman,

I don’t think it will have any effect on content in wpForo version. The small CSS conflict can be easily sovled.

Finally, as I suspected, the plugin don’t recognize the builder code and shows a post full of shortcodes.

The post forum: https://www.deviolines.com/forum/articulos-de-la-web/resinas-un-asunto-pegajoso/

Any idea how to solve it?

Hi Chusman,
This is not the plugin issue. You just need to enable shortcodes in wpForo posts. Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab and enable the “Enable WordPress Shortcodes in Post Content ” option.
Then delete website cache and navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page, click on [Delete all caches] to reset forum posts cache.

For further support please open a support topic in our forum. This section is only for Pre-Sale questions, here we don’t provide support for issues arisen during installation and usage.

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.

Will not such cross posting generate duplicate content in search engines?

Support

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,
What happens when a page created with Content Pagination Pro – containing slider&pagination – becomes a forum topic via Blog Cross Posting ? Will the forum topic reproduce the paginated content and the slider ?

Support

I’m sorry but the pagination plugin is not designed for using in forum topics and posts. wpForo will strip the pagination shortcodes in content.

Hello,

For less conflict and high performance, and flexible management, we are using multisite, and there are two sub site:

shop site
community site,

and I have Two Pre-sale questions:

1# In our multisite, we allow our users for frontend post in our community subsite. so All of post by our web users will also be published in a forum? or only the post by administrator will be put into forum?
2# I want to also make a Presale question tab for our products in our shop site, but I do want these pre-sale question or comment to be posted to community subsite, not in shop site, since I do not want activated wpForo again in shop sub site, by this way, it is easy and flexible to manage all operation, is that possible?

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
Tom

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
Tom

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
Tom

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.
