View Full Version : Linking to Forum Discussions

10-15-2009, 02:29 PM
I'm working in dreamweaver 8, refreshing my personal site. I've created a forum and I'd like to add discussion links at the bottom of each article on the main page.

I've got no problem creating a link that says "DISCUSS" linking to the forum topic, but how can I show the number of people who've already posted replies- so at the bottom of the article it would show, "7 COMMENTS". I've tried looking at the code from sites that are doing what I want [www.appleinsider.com], but can't decipher how they're doing it.

I'm not a coding expert, and do my web design using the "DESIGN" tab almost exclusively, so pardon any ignorance on my part.

my webpage is www.hoverboy.com

Thanks for any help!

You'd have to connect to your forum software and get that data out.
This is more a question about your forum software, not DW.
