My nonprofit organization is building an online community using WordPress and Discourse and we’re looking for a discourse developer. Please get in touch with me via PM and tell me about your discourse contributions so far and your suggestions on how you can help move us forward. We’re interested in contributing back to discourse via plugins or pull requests whenever humanly possible and are enjoying the stability of our minimally customized discourse instance.
We have SSO set up and running properly thanks to @AdamCapriola and have set up some nice integration points to discourse e.g.
- linking from WordPress user profile pages to discourse activity
- setting discourse groups in WordPress
- triggering Discourse PMs upon signup and content contributions in WordPress
- organization affiliation set via WordPress in discourse custom field
- user preferred language set via WordPress
- location set via WordPress
There are a handful of plugins/features we’d like to see advance and can contribute funds towards, starting with inline post translation (originally started by @hugoalmeida but seemingly abandoned), sharing posts and topics via pdf/print, “softer” onboarding for new users, along these lines by @sperok but integrated, and
*cough* a prettier view of tags, preferably using tag clouds.
More pressing however is to create linkages back to WordPress via user cards and user profiles. We’d like to display organization affiliation name, logo and link (available via custom fields) directly on the user card and profile page. If content has been contributed in WordPress by the user we’d like to link to their WordPress profile page (URL contains username) which will show a list of their latest contributions. The location we’d like to see link back to a filtered view of the member directory showing members in that country (also provided as custom field).
