Is the possibility of linking few blog posts to the same forum topic with blog linking plugin?

Maybe with some SP API function? (or I must manually put the link to the forum topic inside the post?)

thats what the blog linking plugin does...  links blog posts to forum topics or vice versa... but it is done on a new blog post or a new forum topic... currently, we cannot go back and do it on existing blog posts or forum topics but hope to add in near future...

OK, when I was writing this post I've got an answer 🙂 - Simply take this new forum topic's link and put them into the 2nd, 3rd, 4th post manually with the link option in the blog. Just simple... :))))) Only difference will be that forum always lead you to the first linked post in blog, but this is normal....

Yes I think missed the point! But what you are doing manually will work of course. Simple solution.

Can I use some kind of SP's API function(s) to positioning and better controlling of showing the blog links in blog's posts?

 

For example:

In some conditions I do not want to show blog links in posts, in some others I want, but on some other place than bottom of posts.

 

Some nice API function for showing blog links in posts will resolve many of these questions (+ easy showing links in multiple posts 😉 )

probably not the sp api per se, since blog linking is in a plugin... but if the plugin has provided a similar api, then yes... if not, you would need to modify the plugin to support what you want...

and I say 'if' only because I have not worked on that plugin and am unsure what it can do... have to let Andy weigh in on that one...

OK, let's wait Andy's answer 🙂
