    5 . User blogs

    Most people likes to have their own space on web. That is one of the best ways to get them participate and keep them active. I have seen many arguments go in favour of IPB just because they have a CMS, Blog. Some scripts even offer a download system for offering various goodies. But for use to keep it simple at the moment a custom page like user created blogs would be very much useful in my opinion.

    There's a topic for plugin requests already. 👍

    Sorry, I thought it would be nice to have one specially for the contest. Please feel free to merge it.

  • Admin

    if I'm honest, I was thinking of starting a thread like this myself, just to give people some ideas on what would be in demand and perhaps where you would get your vote. I did however forget about the original plugin requests thread 😛

    6 . Q & A page

    Turns NodeBB into a Stackoverflow style Q&A module. Literally it is the same. There will be a custom home page with option for user to ask a question and when clicked on Ask a Question people will be asked to select a category in which the question will reside. But user can interact it with it in front end itself. Nobody cares these days to find appropriate category and sub category to ask a question. They like one click solution. So categories and sub categories could made available as tag cloud which users can select from.

    Ability to insert a background image on forum background. It would be nice to have the position options as " relative " or " absolute "

  • @meetdilip my custom header plugin allow you to do this. Just place it on body in selector and do some CSS magic.

    That is nice to hear @esiao . But would it be nice to have something like one click upload for default theme ?


  • @meetdilip I've tried to find how to do it but failed. I still want to implement it for a further version.

    That's very caring @esiao 👍

    Global Announcements
    As an admin, the ability to create a new topic that shows up on all categories until viewed once, or permanently until a certain period of time has elapsed

    I was seconds away from adding this as an issue for core, then I realized this is potentially plugin territory. I hacked a similar idea in last month via the Custom JS/CSS ACP on this forum for the CMS critic nomination stuff, so imagine that it should be doable as a plugin itself.


  • @psychobunny Global stickies would be a good extension to the existing ones. Not that people ever read stickies, I've always found they get drowned out and glazed over.

  • Admin

    Yeah 50-50 on if this should be a core option or not. Let's see how this pans out, if anybody does decide to take it on as a plugin then 👍

    My main concern is how would the UX work in the composer

    Best way I can think of would be to have a screen pop up when you click pin topic with a checkbox to "Make Global Sticky" or, if it's unticked, it just appears in that category.

    It's probably bad UX as the whole point is to minimise screen options, but seems like a better way than adding pin topic & global pin topic to the Tools menu.

    I have seen this in WordPress. How about something like most upvotes/most recent/ most popular/ most comments etc widget ?It would be nice if we can have two of them. One as post and another for topics. Thanks.

    A very important spam cleaning feature came into my mind.

    Delete all topics / posts by particular users. Helps a lot when you are away and spammer fills your forum with posts. Individual cleaning takes a lot of time. Bulk deleted all topic / posts please ..
