DiscPage: a plugin to create static pages and insert discussion balloons in the text

With DiscPage, you create static pages by adding the “Page” category to any topic.

You can then insert balloon icons, to allow users to discuss subsections of the page.

See the demo and the repo.

The discussion topics show up oddly in /latest - perhaps they should go in their own category, “Page Comments” or similar?

The use of structured tags is pretty neat :slight_smile:

Sure, you can use the discpage balloon category setting to set a category for the “balloon” discussions.

As a second demo, here is a full website created around Discourse and DiscPage: castafiore.org

Is there a way to show the categories/subcategories on the left?

Is there a way to show the categories/subcategories on the left?

There’s no automatic way to show categories on DiscPage static pages. However, you can add category links manually. You can then style those links to put them in a sidebar on the left (using a theme component).

P.S.: you probably know that, but remember you can access categories from the hamburger menu.
