New bbPress Project Launched Today – WoW UI Gallery
I posted in a thread a while back about a project I was working on with bbPress and some people were interested in it so now that it is complete I thought I would share.
I have created a community website for enthusiasts of custom user interfaces for World of Warcraft. Users make a post consisting of a description of their UI, screenshots, and other various meta data. Other users can comment on and rate the UI’s that have been posted. And of course they can discuss further in the forum.
Aside from some small modifications to the profile page code (why isn’t there a template for this?!) all of the additional functionality has been achieved through plugins and theme code. I wrote most of the functionality into a plugin I am called bb-gallery. I am also using ajaxed-quote (detective), bb-ratings (mdawaffe), bb-topic-views (wittmania, _ck_), my-views (_ck_), and front-page-topics (_ck_, mdawaffe).
There were a few snags here and there but overall I was very happy to work with bbPress and it will definitely be my first choice for any other forum project in the near future. The site has been up for less than 18 hours at this moment but I’ve already gotten over 1000 page views and a promising lead for a possible “digg” effect of sorts.
If any of you are WoW fans I invite you to join the community!
