I’m trying to implement Discourse commenting on a multi-site WordPress install. The basic idea is to have all of the posts on all of the sites publish to a single aggregated Discourse install, and have the Discourse discussions post back to the comments of the corresponding blog that posted the original content. This is to be accomplished via the WordPress Discourse plugin
I am migrating (in theory) from bbPress, and basically trying to replicate the function of the bbPress Topics for Posts plugin.
- WP Discourse plugin (configured at site level, not network level)
- all sites publishing posts to forum.example.com as expected
- corresponding Discourse topics correctly flagged categoryONE, categoryTWO, etc.
- SSO w/ endpoint http://network.example.com
It seems like this concept might not be possible when I get to the point of the Embed settings at: http://forum.example.com/admin/site_settings/category/embedding
If I understand correctly, this setup would require multiple embeddable host fields to tell Discourse which exampleXXX.com site to post the comments back to.
Is there a way to get this to work as currently conceived? If not, what would I need to change? Discourse Multisite seemed to be geared toward a setup with discreet forums for each WP site/sub-site.
