How to get started with Discussions & External Links Posting Plugin?

Discussions & External Links Posting is one of the most important plugin for your website which makes your site more engaging by sharing of views on each other’s discussions. Also it will increase social awareness among site members. Discussion provides you an opportunity to create a virtual online community, connect, discuss, share ideas, and support each other.


By observing who is posting discussions on your website and the topics they post about, you’re able to have a better idea of who your target audience is as well as what they want. This allows you to serve them better. One other benefit with this plugin is that users will take the initiative to search discussions for their questions instead of contacting you, and users will respond to each other’s concerns themselves.
