I am aware this is almost thread a year old, and could not find something more recent.
I am looking at Discourse (whose development I have followed for some time) as the thread title describes — to replace Drupal comments. Is there an update on the integration?
Ideally, I am looking for commenting to be undertaken on the same page as the blog post, and effectively there being no need for/users not leaving the site and going to the actual Discourse forum. In other words commenting would be seamless and remain in the blog post and the Discourse forum hidden/inaccessible.
As an extension, is there a script or guide for converting existing Drupal comments to Discourse posts (I am aware there is a forum import script for Drupal -> Discourse)
[still working through the conceptual for the site update, currently running Drupal 7.x]
