Sending HubSpot blog posts as topics in Discourse
We launched a community site for our members-only on the Discourse platform earlier this year (separate from our public-facing website). When we launched, we used an RSS plugin to send our HubSpot blogs over to a specific category in Discourse.
Apparently, the RSS plugin was turned off because it was interfering with other functionality on the Discourse site (I was not here when this was all configured nor was I involved when the plugin was turned off).
I have a few questions before I implement:
- The Discourse resource makes it seem like this JS would have to be embedded on each blog post. Given that all our blogs are using the same template, could I not add the JS to the template in Design Manager to apply this universally?
- If I apply the JS universally, is there a way to prevent blogs that were already posted to our Discourse site from being reposted? The previously used plugin was turned off in early September so I would only want to trigger blogs after the last one (Sept 6) through today and moving forward.
- The Discourse resource makes it seem like with this embed code, if someone posts a comment on the Discourse topic those comments would show up on our HubSpot blog page. Since our Discourse site is locked to members only, I do not want to send the comments back to HS (nor do I want there to be a message saying it's not connecting). Our Discourse site and HubSpot blog site are on different subdomains of the same domain (community.xyplanningnetwork.com and blog.xyplanningnetwork.com respectively). Below is what the Discourse resource says in relation to this question - does this mean comments will not show nor will there be any message about not connecting?
Thanks in advance for any insight,
