News Site Plugin Idea
I was thinking (again) about using GForum to build a newssite like Slashdot. It really wouldn't be so difficult, there are only a few things that would need to be added/changed through a plugin:

  • Root post of a thread is the newsitem, replies are user comments.

  • Set all the forum permissions to "can reply but can't post" for most users. Obviously admin and a selected user group would need to be able to post

  • Different display for root posts (news) and non root posts (comments)

  • Different categories/forum would correspond to different news categories

  • New page/template that lists the last 10 or so news items (root posts)

  • Users can submit stories (similar to posting a comment). Submitted stories are stored in different table until they are validated/deleted

  • Submitted story validate/delete page for admin

  • user profile: submitted stories

  • etc etc



Anyone interested in this? Toghether with Paul's Karma plugin, this could be just like slashdot or php-nuke or things like that.

More ideas are welcome!

Ivan
