Could I show the best posts in a seperate view like WordPress?


(徐徐浩) #1

Hello, everyone:

For me, discourse is a good place to create posts and discuss, but it’s not so good at showing the posts.
I am wondering if it’s possible to show the selected best posts on a separate view, for example WordPress?
I know there is an extension WP-discourse, it seems that it supports to publish the posts on WP to discourse, not the other way.
Or is it possible or easy to create a beautiful post like the top POST on Medium?

It’s possible, I’ve done something like that by applying styles to a ‘blog’ class. This takes the first image and turns it into a header image.

That looks really nice. Could you give me your site address? Would you like to share with me your styles?

The site is private right now, but I can share the styles. I’ll put them up here soon.

Thanks very much, you are really nice.

If you wanna go this route, you could consider buying the commercial plugin Twig Anything by @meglio, assuming it’s still being maintained against the latest version of Discourse.

If you want to showcase the best posts, then the curated home plugin may also be a possible option to explore too. You may have to edit a substantial amount of its source code as Discourse’s own code base changed so much since that plugin was last updated.
