The Gamification of Discourse

I’d like to feature selected snippets of my Forum on the home page of Wordpress to create a Quora-like widget featuring the most popular post of the day.

This post alludes to embedding a thread and comments, but stops short of the ability to reply. Don’t know why that wasn’t included. Seems a bit like a “can’t give it to you that easy.”

Gamification seems to be the new way. I’d just like to focus everything on one snippet at a time on the home page. Think of it more like an app (Insta, TikTok, Quora) and less like a phone book.

Simplicity is key.

Can this be done?

Discourse is not an embedded commenting system. If you need that choose some other free open source software.


I’ll make it work. Thanks.
