@Canapin … well. Don’t be too harsh on the reasoning. But …I wanted to use those links for the WP-Discourse blog comments; a direct link when clicking the comment button.
Basically, from a WordPress blog post, clicking on the comment button would take the reader to the compose box on that connected discourse thread so they can begin typing. (or signup/login popup if not already registered).
Removes a few extra clicks to help encourage participation.
That makes sense. I’m thinking that if users are being encouraged to post in this way (without first encouraging them to read all comments on a topic) it might be better to just reduce all friction and allow them to comment directly from the WordPress page. This isn’t possible at the moment, but it’s something that should maybe be considered as an addition to the WP Discourse plugin for WordPress sites that are using DiscourseConnect to log users into Discourse. For WordPress sites that aren’t using DiscourseConnect, it would be a lot more complex to allow users to comment directly on WordPress.
