Can P2 be modified to be more Twitter-like? (2 posts)

    My post subject is just a hypothetical question but I wonder if P2 could be modified to work more like Twitter does by:

    - disabling inline comments and all post replies shown as posts on the main timeline,
    - when clicking on "reply", the only action would be to insert the original post author's name (@username) in the front page editor (post-form.php)

    Please note that users on my test site do not have access to the backed except for their profile (via plugins & modifications) so all posting is done from the front page (admin excluded).

    Cheers,
    Gene

    I'm interested in the plugins you used to accomplish getting rid of the backend, except for the profile... And sorry for hijacking your thread!

    Well - actually - I CAN sort of answer your question...

    YES. Hypothetically. You can make P2 more twitter/facebook-like...

    BUT - this would require quite a bit of hacking... and some good knowledge of PHP. Basically, you would remove all the links that allow a user to click on "Reply" or "Comments" or Permalink or Edit... etc. I've actually removed a few of those myself!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "when clicking on "reply", the only action would be to insert the original post author's name (@username) in the front page editor (post-form.php)" Maybe if I used Twitter, I would!
