Imagine I want to convert individual forum threads (topic + comments) into a content type 'Blog post' to preserve them for the long term.
In order to make this work, the comment field of 'Blog post' needs to be identical to that of 'Forum topic' (this is a limitation of the conversion module currently in beta). Thus I simply re-used the comment type
comment_forum also for 'Blog post', which works fine.
Now I wonder if that'll cause problems in the long term. At least it seems pretty counter intuitive to use
comment_forum for anything other than 'Forum topic'. I do not yet fully understand what the implications are of sharing a comment field with multiple content types.
Should I go ahead? Are there better ways to accomplish this?
