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!
