I really can’t understand why wordpress oneboxing isn’t a higher priority than it seems to be. I mean my impression was that Discourse wanted to be the “Wordpress” of forums - … and everyone knows how prevalent wordpress blogs are - so why not a special feature that auto-one boxes word press blog entries. (or even better - any web page - just pull out the first x number of words in the body of the web page).
I have to believe that it would greatly improve Boing BOing’s conversations.
Does anyone really think that this is the most helpful way to start a conversation?
