[resolved] Great plugin... want to make it even greater? (2 posts)

    Hello there,

    I wanted to thank you most sincerely for this lovely little plugin, lightweight and simple to use, if I can ever get my Trustees to use the WPBB Forums I installed and this plugin (I work part-time for an organisation with a tiny budget, huge, elderly membership and a management committee of an average age of 75+ :/).

    BTW, I couldn't work out whether the plugin has front-end options, to display the board, its members and committees, or whether it only works through the WP admin interface - which is way too confusing for my Trustees.

    So I wondered whether you had ever considered:

    1) adding Officer roles - I am in the UK, so forgive the, possibly unfamiliar English terminology - Chair, Vice-chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Trustee and Co-optee are commonly the roles in a British Charitable or unincorporated Community management committee or Board of Trustees.

    2) Integrating a fork of either ForumPress - now sadly all but abandoned by its author and not well supported by another outfit - or WPBB; both are excellent, lightweight BBS plugins that do not require a separate installation, like MyBB, nor are they as vast and complex as ByddyPress or bbPress.

    This could give us a fantastic, seamless Non-Profit communication channel for non-profit boards that cannot manage to meet very often and so could use secure online discussion boards, to conduct preliminary debates, prior to meeting and voting; integrating project-management - a bit like CalPress for BuddyPress could then make it THE product of choice and make you leaders in the field.

    Ah yes... and the option to print a discussion, thread or even whole board could give poor sods like me a ready-made set of minutes that I can post off to Trustees not on email... (yes I have 4 of those :( [sigh!] )

    Well... anyway... just a thought! :)

    Thank you again for your sterling work, you're the best!

    Kind regards.

    Bristol, UK

    Hi Gea,

    Thanks a lot for reaching out and for providing such great suggestions! As far as the front-end goes, there is a way to list out the board members using a shortcode. You can watch a video on how to do this at the bottom of http://wordpress.org/plugins/nonprofit-board-management/faq/.

    For your suggestion about officers, that has been recommended a number of times and is definitely on our radar.

    For integration with forum tools, that's a great idea and can probably be done at this point with some custom coding. That said, we don't have any existing integration with other plugins.

    Thanks again and good luck with the organization!
