Integrating Digg-style submission and voting

edited January 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi there. Long time listener, first time caller. I run a small community site for podcasters based around Vanilla. The site also uses Mediawiki and hooks nicely into the Vanilla login system. Now, I'm investigating the various ways of getting an article submission & voting system installed a la The wishlist (if that's the right word) is quite simple: i) functional and reliable software ii) uses existing user login details iii) that's it I know Vanilla can hook into Wordpress with some modding - I'm currently using TextPattern as the site CMS as I know it fairly well. I'm looking for one of the following things: a) a Vanilla add-on to allow voting up and down of articles submitted by the userbase b) as above, but an add-on to Wordpress c) as above, but an add-on to TextPattern (with some glue to keep it all together :)) d) recommendations for another CMS that will hook into Vanilla in a clean and graceful fashion Thanks in advance for any info. Pete

    You could use the poll add-on and then customise it, or you could make your own.

    It all comes into if you know how to use vanilla well enough or not. If you are you can probably quickly hook these things together, or you can ask the guys here who know what they're doing to see what they can do, but you would be patient because i know people who know what they are doing with Vanilla are quite popular ;)

    Doesnt the 'vote' extension do exactly that for comments? I'd imagine it would be easier to modify that (if necessary)

    Thanks, everyone. At this stage, I don't know enough about the ins-and-outs of Vanilla to start modding stuff and I'm up against a tight-ish deadline. I've gone for Drupal for the voting side of things, which seems to be working nicely, my next step is to integrate it with Vanilla on the authorisation tip. To be continued 8)

    Oh, if anyone's interested in a fairly stock Vanilla with a couple of dodgy hacks:
