The forum and main wordpress site can have their posts linked together.
To link a wordpress post to the forums, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for the ‘link to forum section’ select the forum you want your article to appear in from the drop down list and then click publish or update if you’ve already published the post.
To create a link from a forum topic to a wordpress post, there is a tick box at the bottom of the entry form which says ‘create linked post’
Tick the box before saving the topic and choose a wordpress category for your article. There’s no option to do this once the topic has been saved.
Linking your posts to the Forum ensures that the maximum number of users will see the article.
