Discussion Board and Threaded discussion

Postby saurabh_kudesia » Thu Apr 06, 2006 10:23 pm


Is there any possibility and method of linking an existing discussion forum developed in phpBB with the readers comments in the OJS ver 2.0 and above? We are looking forward to connect our existing forum section with that of the OJS Journal so that readers can post their comments directly on the forum rather on the Journal website.

Hi Saurabh,

This can be accomplished by disabling the built-in reader comments system (Journal Setup, step 2) and adding a link to your forum to the navigation bar (Journal Setup, step 5). To achieve a higher level of integration, such as tying articles to specific forums, you'll need to write some code.
