threaded forum posts – possible? pros and cons?

  • Vernon Fowler


    Wondering if threaded forum posts are possible, and how to set it up. Is it a simple setting in wp-config.php or a matter of adding to functions.php or something that you’d advise against? Anyone already using threaded discussions? Pros and cons?

    Threaded comments are built into WordPress and therefore BuddyPress but not in the forum section currently.

    I’m not aware of this being on the roadmap but I did find a thread around the similar topic that may be of use to you.

    Thanks Tammie. I did see that thread earlier but it isn’t clear to me whether the conversation was more around threaded comments rather than forum posts.

    I was hoping to do this too. Is this something that will be easier to accomplish the the component api?



    I too would like to have this. Forums typically don’t allow threaded posts – that was an invention of comment threads. I would consider threaded forum posts to be more of a “discussion group” than a forum. WebCT (now called Blackboard) uses “discussion groups” and it’s quite useful in that context.

    Ideally this could be a enabled/disabled feature under buddypress’s settings for group forums. I don’t see a need for threaded forums in a global forums context.
