New Discussion Title as Link to Another Source (like digg/reddit)?

aeryaery Gtricks Forum in 2.2 :) ✭✭✭

Does the flexibility of Vanilla Forum allows us to use it like social news aggregator?

Concept: People post link to another page/source in the same way they make New Discussion where other people can comment and the title takes you to the actual source?

Vanilla is sweet & support is great, to encourage volunteers, please donate.

    This is an interesting idea. It is, of course, possible.

    I would approach it by extending the discussion model to include something like a "source link", hook into the new/edit discussion controller/view to add the new form element. Finally, make the view use the new source link as the link on the discussions view.

    Honestly, this might be better as a separate (but integrated) application.

    Should be fairly trivial with a DiscussionUrl function override.
