Hi @codetricity and others here using drupal and considering discourse, like me.
I am currently exploring these links for static HTML embedding, which I think should work with trivial effort on drupal. Just add a block with the code to be displayed below every blog post, disable comments and go!
This solution assumes you want to have a “permeable membrane” between the editorial space (blog) and discussion space (discourse) on your site, which won’t work for all sites, but I am considering it for mine. @codinghorror makes a good case for it in his blog post:
I do not, and will not, offer in-page commenting here. If you want to reply with a comment, you go next door to the community clubhouse. There’s a fairly strong, but permeable, membrane between the editorial area here and the community area there. This is intentional.
