Favourites Plugin?

    I was thinking about a plugin that would add something of a “Favourites” to Buddypress. It kind of ties in to a sidewide tagging component, so I don’t know if it should be apart of that, or be separate…

    What I was thinking is that users can go to a group, event, profile, forum, blog, blog post, wire, photo, whatever and click on a button “Add to my favourites” and on the user’s profile page there will be a section “My Favourites” and it would list all the items in there. Maybe they can be grouped in sub ‘folders’, such as “Cats Favourites” and “Dogs Favourites”. Kind of a like dynamic folders, or “search” folders. “Special” favourite folders could be “Latest Blog Post from Favourite Friends” or “Latest post in Favourtie Groups” and they would always contain the latest posts (obviously).

    Is there any interest in this sort of thing, or am I alone in this? Any additional ideas?

    That’s a good idea put them in a Tag cloud….also is there a report abuse button for BP?

    This sounds good, but I would want to be able to control what aspects get a favourites button. Maybe only blogs or events.

    Here, just for reference, is a more active discussion on the same idea: “My Favorites” Plugin, but I think egerrits’ description, in the first post of this thread, nails it more clearly.

    And here is a thread suggesting there should be a way to report inappropriate content, which could be good functionality to combine in one plugin along with Favorites functionality, as they are both forms of the same thing, tagging items: “Report This” feature
