Discussion Web Part Linking RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a site with a discussion list. On the default.aspx page, I'd like to place two web parts

    1. This web part should display the topics from the discussion list.
    2. This web part should display the flat.aspx view for a topic that a user clicks on in the first web part.

    I've wracked my brain here, and I can't seem to get it working. I'd be very grateful for any insight that some of you could offer.

  • Hi Jarrod,

    For item 1, have you tried the "Discussions" web part? I believe that's what you want.

    Clicking an item will take you to that thread's flat.aspx view. The user can then click "back" to return to the home page.

    If you really need the flat.aspx view on the home page as well, I don't have a good answer. But maybe someone else here will.

    Off the top of my head, you would need the equivalent of a page viewer web part, that displays a page based on a selection from the Discussions web part. Seems like this could be accomplished, I'm just not sure how ... JavaScript, JQuery, someone's Codeplex solution, custom coding, a custom web part?

    Good luck,
