I just installed and configured WP-Discourse. It looks like it is working however I see some html tags come in my post on Discourse from Wordpress which is likely related to the Theme I am using on Wordpress.
Quick check, I assume it is 1 direction, right? So a Wordpress post gets published on Discourse. If I then make changes in that discourse post (e.g. remove the html tags) this doesn’t get synchronized with Wordpress. Right?
I will make a new post to test and see if this happens all the time (as I just published an old post to Discourse to see if it worked).
Sure. My forum can be found here, my Wordpress can be found here.
It was the Ragnarok post that had the HTML in it when published. I did change it on Discourse though so it won’t show. I will likely publish a new post tomorrow so will test it again and let you know if it happens again.
Yes please let me know if this happens again and I’ll take a look straight away. Please also make a note of the circumstances that lead to the issue, i.e what exactly you’re doing when you create the Wordpress post.
When the WP discourse plugin is updated in wordpress, this customization is reset to default configuration and each time we have to reconfigure the template. the default configuration display message without featured image
Really great plugin, was just wondering if there was a way to customize a couple of things. As you can see in the screenshot, there’s no space between the word “Comments” and the first comment. Second, the user icons are about 50% too large. Last, I’d like to hide the participants section as I see no use for it.
Figured out the spacing and removing the participants section but still cannot figure out how to reduce the avatar size by half. Also, I notice with longer user names they overlap the date on mobile phones.
One suggestion I’d like to see for this plugin is to add a widget that can be used in the sidebar to show the most recently active threads on discourse.
Hello, for some reason YouTube videos are not showing in the Discourse. So they are added in WordPress but once we publish a post and we push it to the Discourse, the video is not shown. Probably because it’s buried under the WP code?
You can’t see any content by short codes either. Discourse should do PHP of WordPress in such situation, but it can’t so the plugin is showing only more or less preview/just text/images/”passive” content.
I don’t know anything but I can’t see how Discourse could parse PHP through a plugin.
As I see this WP Discourse connects a topic to WP-post as commenting system. WP Discourse is not an importer or mirror from WP-post to a topic as you are trying to use it now.
Hey @angus, I got Discourse to show up of Wordpress in the Post section on the Top right corner and it does create posts in the Discourse forum. However, I was wanting to use Jet Engine Plug In with Wordpress and use Discourse with it.
I haven’t used JetEngine before, but it looks like it’s employing it’s own sidebar. The WP Discourse sidebar integrates with the standard Wordpress sidebar hooks and endpoints, so unless JetEngine supports those, the WP Discourse sidebar won’t show up in JetEngine’s custom sidebar. Essentially, this is more of a JetEngine issue. You could reach out to them and ask why items in your standard post sidebar don’t show up in their sidebar.
Check out my response to this recent support topic on this one
I contacted Jet Engine Support as you recommended. They mainly said that they can’t guarantee full compatibility with any third-party plugins.
I attempted to see if the ACF widget (Advanced Custom Fields) post type would work too. Which it had the same issue where the Discourse Plugin as Jet Engine which it wouldn’t show the widget in the top right corner when creating posts. My main goal was to put a Discourse comment section on each Dynamic page. It appears the only way to go about this is not to use either of them and use the standard Post section. Using the WP All Import plugin to transfer all of the posts.
I did notice the Discourse block within the left side column on Gutenberg within the Jet Engine Post type. It doesn’t display Discourse within the top right corner as it does on the original post section.
The image below shows the Gutenberg editor with the Discourse comment section. Problem is it doesn’t show up when previewing the post. Also, since I used Elementor to create the post I’m not sure how to transfer it over.
If Jet Engine are providing a custom Wordpress post creator that doesn’t support any third party plugins, I think that’s your essential problem. I can help you further with specific issues concerning the WP Discourse plugin, but I’m afraid I can’t be of much help with Jet Engine’s custom post creator.
