Crud. I am in the process of migrating a higher ed community from Ning to Discourse and I thought I was able to do this. My plan was use Discourse as a comment engine for our blog. But we also host events, such as workshops and webinars, that we'd like our users to be able to discuss on our forum.
Is improved category embedding in the roadmap, at all?
If so, I will need some kind of workaround until then. Would I run into trouble if I did the following:
- Create a feed that aggregates all content (blogs, events, etc.) and sends it to an "Uncategorized" category on Discourse.
- Manually move topics out of "Uncategorized" and into appropriate categories.
- On the site use the default
discourseEmbedUrl to link to the content on Discourse.
Is Discourse clever enough to link the topic even though I've moved it?
Also, is it possible to create a link to the topic without comments?
