Does Vanilla support embedding a view of a single thread with a link to full discussion?

edited June 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hello,

We're evaluating forum solutions for a new project, and we would like to use the forum to provide comments directly on an article page, instead of requiring users to click a link to go to the appropriate forum thread.

We think gog.com does this very well. Here's a news article that has the most recent 20 "comments" at the bottom of the page:
http://www.gog.com/en/news/new_release_heroes_chronicles_all_chapters

At the top of the "comments", there is a Jump to Forums button that takes the user to the last page of the forum thread (currently 111 posts at the time of this posting). http://www.gog.com/en/forum/general/new_release_heroes_chronicles_all_chapters

Has anyone implemented something similar using Vanilla Forums? If so, can I get a pointer to the implementation and/or search terms so our developers can look into it?

Thanks,
Ben

    We don't have this kind of functionality yet, but are experimenting with it internally. It probably won't be released soon enough for your project though.

    Hey Todd,

    That's still interesting news. Right now we're leaning towards using the "Click here to discuss this article" style link at the bottom of the page. If you add this functionality in the future, it shouldn't be too hard to incorporate it if we select Vanilla as our platform.

    Thanks again for the update.

    Cheers,
    Ben
