Support » Fixing WordPress » Can I make it easy?

  • I have the latest version of WordPress and I want to customize it like this:

    1. I need to have a special category where members can post and each of their posts will be graded by other members.
    2. Once every defined period, the most voted post will show up on the main page and other members will be able to comment it.

    My question is:

    Is there a way to obtain that or to get as closer as possible to that just by using plugins, or do I have to hard code everyting?

    P.S. I know there are plugings for rating posts and that I can use crontab for calling a script at defined periods.

  • Can anyone give any advice?
    Any information would be appreciated.

    Please help.

    You can double check the codex plugins, but nothing is jumping out at me for this. The ratings plugin could be modified for a simple (out of 5 or 10) rating for each post.

    You could also use the poll plugin to have the options of grading that you want in that and have the time before expiring on the poll set to time you want everything to expire.

    As for the special category, you could just create a category for ‘grading’ or whatever you want and then move the items once they are done to another category like ‘finished’ or whatever.

    It would just take a combination of plugins and maybe your cron solution, but as for a plugin already, I don’t think it exists.

    If you are going to hardcode it, you would be better to create your own plugin using the other ones. That way it stays out of core hacks.

    Just a thought.


    Thanks for your reply.
