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?

There was an error rendering this rich post.

    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.
