Moot and Discourse: "Good artists copy, great artists steal"

    Both of these new discussion forum implementations have great new ideas that can be incorporated into bbPress. And they both have integration plugins for wordpress users:

    https://moot.it/

    https://moot.it/docs/wordpress.html

    http://www.discourse.org/

    https://github.com/discourse/wp-discourse

    Some of the features are already implemented in BP and bbPress, like the notifications mention feature (@name). Many others would be great to implement (like, “remember your place” which stores where you read up to in the thread so when you return you don’t have to remember or scroll to it).

    Anyway, just wanted to open up the topic as I don’t think it has been discussed at all previously.

    @netweb

    Thanks for the links, I hadn’t see Moot before

    Personally I am not sure about ‘remember your place’ at all, if I had of used that feature today when I opened bbPress.org would have that put me half way reading topic ‘abc’ in forum ‘xyz’ rather than the home page showing me a summary of what happened recently? Maybe an iterating on that idea a little further where you could have a button/link to ‘Take me to where I last left off’.

    Reply directly inline to search results… That wouldn’t be too difficult to implement.

    Another good read/watch is this post by @sadr http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/any-plans-to-merge-o2-features-into-bbpress/ on the upcoming O2 theme from WordPress, some really cool stuff in this.

    Lastly is the WordPress Heartbeat API and @mordauk has a bit on his blog on an implementation idea in one of his plugins http://pippinsplugins.com/using-the-wordpress-heartbeat-api/

    Needless to say there are lots of ideas on future directions of bbPress and BuddyPress, we also have a few features that have been on users want list for quite a while.
