That’s the function of bookmarks. I think that is exactly what bookmarks are for.
I’d recommend bookmarks as well. We have some changes in the pipe for those too. Stay tuned.
I’ve written an update to the original topic, trying to come up with a better explanation what workflow we’d like to have.
You can do anything in a plugin. Consider posting in #marketplace to recruit a developer to build it for you.
Oh, that’s a good option, thank you.
Here’s the post on marketplace:
I believe there is a plugin or theme component called something like Topic Ratings? That may help with what your trying to acheive
I’ll look into this, thanks.
If your just wanting to have posts boosted have you considered maybe a bot?
I’m not sure I understand. How would that work?
The bot might be able to be set for example if you add to your post @botname it likes the poster’s post.
Ah, that’s interesting. Not ideal, but would work, yeah.
There is also the Retort plugin to add reactions
Maybe just create a tag called “needs help”? I don’t see how a like solves anything.
This will surely liven up our discussions, I’m going to install it, thanks.
I think liking is much easier. Adding a tag is too much effort, it will stop people from engaging. It’s a math class, it’s hard enough.
Your very welcome. The Devs have done an excellent job making Discourse very customizable. Still learning a lot myself.
Have to do some research but the Data Explorer plugin maybe able to add some tools for the teacher and student as well.
If you look into adding custom emojis you can also use more math related emoji pics.
Yeah, discourse is awesome. I actually should go solve some problems, but I’m exploring what else I can do with it, haha.
Well if you need a hand feel free to message me and will help where I can.
Sounds like what you need is the topic voting plugin: Discourse Voting.
Due to the way liking is structured, building a plugin that lets you like your own posts is a little tricky. I would not advise it as your first Discourse plugin.
Ok, good to know, thank you.
