[resolved] WordPress Ideas as a plugin? (5 posts)

    The new "forum" for proposing ideas how to develop WordPress further and rating those ideas is really great. Now I'm wondering how this "idea proposing system" is implemented? The same kind of system would be handy for my purposes too. Does anyone know is it published as a plugin or will that feature be added to the future versions of WordPress?

    Since the Ideas "forum" appears to be a modified/pluggified version of bbPress, perhaps you'd get a better response on your query over there:

    Thanks for the hint! It was really easy to integrate it with wordpress and configure bbpress to a brainstorming forum.

    I've been waiting for this for years now! Could you tell me how you integrated bbpress and wordpress in order to mimic the "ideas" page. I'm sure our definition of easy varies since I don't understand php, but, I'm not daft and have manually set up php bb's and plug-ins before. Thanks!

    You might already have managed to create your ideas forum since you replied two weeks ago, but here is briefly what I did:

    I had WP already installed, so I then installed bbpress, and integrated with WP using this documentation.

    Then, when everything worked, I installed the bbRatings plugins for bbpress, which allows users to rate topics on a star scale. The "read me" text file contained instructions how use it. You need to do some PHP coding, but it is basically just adding few tags to bb templates.

    That was it. And of course, I modified the template for my needs and edited styles and stuff to make it look good.
