Advertising Plugin for Discourse - Join in Now!


(Bcguy) #1

So - I would love to have a good advertising plugin for Discourse - one that does what I’ve outlined in the specifications below.

I’m willing to put in $300 into it. I’d like to find another 20 or 30 people who would be interested in funding the development of this plugin - and we’ll post it on https://www.bountysource.com/
to get bids

Anyone else like to get a good Advertising plugin for your Discourse web site?

OK - I’ve created the Bountysource.com Fundraiser. For other people interested in making money off their Discourse Forums - please contribute your money. If you have other ideas for the ad plugin - please post those here also.

It is of course fine and encouraged to post this here but don’t cross post it in a lot of other topics please.

OK - Just trying to get the word out to all the people who have expressed interest in an advertising plugin.


(Bcguy) #5

So - advertising has been identified as a top issue for many people here - but nobody is actually willing to pay for it?

This surprises you because…? (I know, trollish, but I’ve seen this over and over again)

Unlike most feature requests - this feature/plugin can actually pay for itself. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

I definitely believe that to be true, I just have yet to find the client who wants to pay for development of an advertising application. No idea why that is, just has been my experience for many years. Either they don’t see the value or think there is a “free” option out there :confounded:
