Post comments on news stories with forum log in. - RyanD - 19-05-2016

Hi AutoVolt.

It would be really good if I could comment on news stories with my forum login,

Or if there was some way to tie the news story into a forum post,  Pistonheads have a system like this and it works quite well for engagement.

Thanks
Ryan

Thanks for the idea Ryan, ironically, AutoVolt used to have this feature as we used a forum software called Moot. This integrated forum and post comments together. Unfortunately, we found that most people looking for a "familiar" forum didn't take too well to the Moot (now called Muut) experience, as it is a very different way of doing a forum. Arguably better, but not familiar hence this new and more traditional approach. I'll look into seeing whether there's a plugin for MyBB that will make this work though as it is a good idea - thank you.

Thanks Jon,

I know there is a lot to consider and you can't please all the people all of the time.

Appreciate the reply.
