Link to Forums or Comments

by Hadley Stern Nov 28, 2005

It’s a minor thing really, but like most minor things I tend to think about them a ton! So I need your help. Now that I have forums on the site it is possible to link stories to the forums where people can comment, instead of having people comment on the story page itself. The benefit, I assume, would be to help continue to build the forums, and have all story comments in a unified place. Makes sense.

But another part of me really likes the blog-like feel of having the comments follow the story. What do you think? Would you comment more or less either way? Or does in not matter? (For now!) comment below.


  • I think it is a silly question. ... These things are computers. Set it up right and your comments are in both places.

  • Mac360 has tried the same sorta thing and it seemed to work for a while.

    But for me, there’s something about forums that seems disconnected from the article, by comparison to comments.

    I can see why you want to link them, but unless you can do it transparently, then it can get messy - as I guess it already has.
