Favorites — expanding capabilities
We have had bits of this conversation going on in a number of other topic threads, but I’d like to unite the conversation in one place. Here are the main issues/questions:
- Is it possible, or will it soon be possible with an upgrade to BP, to have a “Favorite” button in forum posts in addition to Activity Stream posts?
- Ability to “Favorite” a TOPIC, not just an individual post, would be huge, and show FRESHNESS of posts within that topic. I have found this feature very handy here on the Buddypress forums — there are probably 15 Topics I have added to my list of Favorites, and by viewing my Favorites list, I can quickly scan the freshness of topics in the list to see which ones have new replies to read. This is a killer feature that turns the forum into a real tool. I realize that this is a bbPress feature, but since Buddypress is all about integrating bbPress with WordPress, I’m really hoping you can add this feature or someone can make a plugin to do this with BP.
- What is the current state of Favorties plugin development, and is there something in the works that can accomplish the above?
Thanks for all your hard work — BP is an amazing piece of software, and you have done a great job with it.
