Favorites - build a topic list of your favorite topics

(Bianca) #1

Hello everyone,

This plugin lets users select their favorite categories and view only topics from their favorite categories. This plugin is the implementation of the idea mentioned here and drafted as a specification here.

How to use

  • The user decides which categories he likes the most and marks them as favorite. This can be done from the Categories view.

  • The user can also modify his favorites list from the User Preferences view.


:warning: Due to a limitation of Discourse plugins system, the changes are saved immediately and the “Save Changes” button will actually do nothing to the favorite categories list. In other words, if you change the list and do not press “Save changes”, the changes will still be saved.

  • Now the category :star: Favorites contains all topics from all favorite categories. This category can be accessed like any other category (i.e. from the drop down on the home page).



:information_source: Discourse 2.0+ is required.

Follow the official instructions: Install a Plugin.

The repository containing the source code of the plugin is located at https://github.com/nbianca/discourse-favorites.


I am not aware of any bugs. However, if you find any, do not hesitate to report them.

Your feedback is highly appreciated and will help me to improve the plugin for everyone. If you have any suggestions, please reply. :slight_smile:

Nice! :+1:
Can the favorites view be selected as a user’s home screen (like latest or categories) too?

Unfortunately that is not supported yet, but I am considering it.
