Is it possible to embed comments from a single topic and allow discussion on the page where they are embedded?

NodeBB Development
  • Does nodeBB have this capability? We're in the development stage of a website redesign and we're looking to keep certain topics/comments tied to different pages without having to navigate away to the forum to participate. Has anyone seen an example of a site using forum tools this way? Thanks!

  • Yes, you'll want to investigate using nodebb-plugin-blog-comments 😄

  • Thanks for the tip—I'll look into it!

  • I've been trying nodebb-plugin-blog-comments but I get this message in my log:

    23/10 22:03:40 [14636] - warn: [plugins/load] The following plugins may not be compatible with your version of NodeBB. This may cause unintended behaviour or crashing. In the event of an unresponsive NodeBB caused by this plugin, run ./nodebb reset -p PLUGINNAME to disable it.

    Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open 'C:\Temp\NodeBB\build\public\templates\comments\admin.tpl'

    I also am unable to access the Plugin->Blog Comments section. It just spins. I'm using NodeBB version 1.6.1.

    Thank you!

  • I copied comments folder from nodebb-plugin-blog-comments\public\templates to NodeBB\build\public\templates and that appears to have worked. Thanks!
