Is there a way to automatically generate new posts? For example, if I already have a shopping cart application, is it possible to automatically generate a discussion thread for each item on sale, kind of like a user review system. Of course I would have to hack my cart to tell gossamer forum to post a new topic for each item but I'm just wondering if there's already existing hooks for me to interface to.

It would take a little knowledge of perl to do so, but it's pretty straightforward. You could add something like:

use lib '/path/to/gossamer/forum/admin';
use GForum qw/$DB/;
$DB->table('Post')->insert( {
post_subject => 'a test post!',

and that would do it. If your not comfortable with the programming required, you could contact us or post a message in the custom jobs section of the forum.
