DiscussionAbout 1.2

Have discussions about a non-Vanilla item in your database.

DiscussionAbout lets you associate Vanilla discussions to a non-Vanilla item in your database of your choosing. For example, if you have "articles" in your database users can:

  • Create a discussion about an article by visiting /yourforum/post/?article=123.
  • See in the recent discussions list, category discussions list, and individual discussion page which article each discussion is about (with the article's title!)
  • See a list of discussions about an article by visiting /yourforum/?article=123, or see a list of discussions about an article by a particular author by visiting /yourforum/?author=456.

See a live example!


  1. Add a foreign key to GDN_Discussion pointing to the table containing the items you want to have discussions about.
  2. Install the plugin (but don't enable yet!)
  3. In the plugin's folder, copy config-example.php to config.php.
  4. Edit the configuration in config.php. The relevant documentation is in there.
  5. Enable the plug-in.
