I like this plugin, but I can imagine it being much better with a few improvements like Alaskan is talking about.
-- Perhaps make "Allow voting on summary page" an option that users can switch on and off. I also believe that most of the ideas that will be submitted will be short, and the reader will have a good understanding just from the summary page.
-- A more sophisticated approach: turn on voting on the summary page by default, but whenever the "Read More" is triggered, turn OFF the voting on the summary page and add a note that says "To vote, [link]read complete idea description[/link]." That way, your concern about people reading the full idea is handled automatically, while providing the greatest convenience for readers when the full dieas are visible on the main page.
-- You could also make the amount of text that is displayed before a "Read More" break to be a configuration parameter for the admin -- if the admin wants to devote an extra line or two to each post to get the full text of most of them into the summary, he can do that.
The plugin would also be much easier to use if it automatically created a new tab/item in the main menu called "Ideas" that would take the reader to a summary Idea Stream page (what I call an "Idea Wall") that shows N (configurable) recent ideas along with a form for submitting a new idea and a link to the FULL list of ideas.
-- I know on one experimental site where I installed this plugin, I somehow was able to create such pages -- I actually ended up with two menu items both going to the idea stream. (I'm not sure how either one is defined or where I go in the site admin pages to eliminate one of them.)
But on another site I'm playing with, I haven't been able to get ANY link to the idea stream on the menu. (That second site is also using BuddyPress, which may be interfering with Idea Stream.)
If getting a page were simply automatic, that would be a big help.
Merci beaucoup for all of your work on this plugin to-date!
