Discourse for comment login to be at comments section



I am concerned about the way users have to go back to the Discourse install to sign up inorder to make comments on wordpress posts. My wish is that the same way the log in popup shows up when signing in or signing up within Discourse be the same way it happens when a user wants to comment. See the implementation in The Verge. This is so that when a user comes in to comment on the post, they don’t need to leave the post.

Is this something we can look forward to?

No. @sam is the maintainer of Wordpress plugin. And he said there is no plan for this.

It’s by design to redirect the user to the forum.


@sam You can’t change your mind about this? I want to replace disqus, but I don’t want to exactly alienate users who care little for the forum part.

Acctually, I had an experiment on making a comment system with Discourse API (Laravel PHP backend). But it’s too complicated than I create my own comment system.

Discourse is not a commenting system, it is a companion discussion area.


I do know that, but was hoping that it compliments the comments while
serving the discussions in the forum too. But thanks for the feedback.
