Unable to map embedded blog comments to existing discussions

edited July 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.3

I am using the Universal Code, not the WordPress plugin.
I used the "vanilla_discussion_id" variable and assigned it to discussion id number. However, when I added a new comment for the first time, it created a new discussion instead of using the discussion I assigned.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I looked at the database and it seems that it can only use the "vanilla_identifier" variable which maps to the "ForeignID" column in the "GDN_Discussion" table.

On a side note, I had no problems mapping to an existing category with the "vanilla_category_id" variable.


  • Same issue here too. I don't know if it's a race-condition or something else. It happens mostly on first comments. e.g. If there are no comments on the page and the two distinct users comments at the same time then I see those comments create separate discussions for the same page instead of being in one.
