Use Vanilla for comments section

edited December 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I'm building a website where users can upload html5 games. How can I automatically create a vanilla thread for each uploaded game and embed it on the game page as a comments section? It should work like the wordpress comments section here on vanilla forums:

    You could look at the addons code hosted on github, search these forums for recent link

    I don't know which code you mean, but I have looked into the code of some plugins and that did not really help me.

    This is my current code:

    define('APPLICATION', 'Vanilla');
    define('APPLICATION_VERSION', '2.0.16');
    define('DS', '/');
    define('PATH_ROOT', 'community');
    ob_end_clean(); // clear any header output from vanila
    $Session = Gdn::Session();
    $Authenticator = Gdn::Authenticator();

    Now I am looking for something like this for displaying:

    $discussionID = 12;
    $DiscussionController = GDN::DiscussionController();

    and something like this for adding a discussion:

    $DiscussionController->Insert($discussionTitle, ...);

    Any idea?
