I had an idea the other day that would be a nifty piece of coding art. First, the short background piece for relevancy: On Camen Design, at the end of each article in the footer section, Kroc has a link to the forums that say "discuss this in the forum."
The question: Is it possible to have that link, when clicked on, start a new thread in the forum that also inserts the title of the article from which the "discuss this in the forum" link was clicked? And, if the article already has a thread in the forum, then the forum link from the article just takes the user to the appropriate thread?
For example, if I'm reading this article : http://camendesign.com/code/splitscreen and at the end I want to discuss it in the forum, I click on the link "discuss this in the forum" and it creates a new thread with the title: Vertical Split Screen CSS Without Background Images. I write my forum post, enter name and password, and viola, forum post about article created.
However, if the thread is already created, then when I click the "discuss it in the forum" link, it automatically brings me to the appropriate thread.
It's a nifty idea, but it's something beyond my programming capabilities.
