I'm working on this rather customised install of discourse:
Its not quite finished but already implements a few modifications such as:
- allows login as guest (without creating an account)
- allows conversations to be automatically linked to objects on the site (if you click 'start a conversation' while on the page for a gig, the resulting topic created will be associated with that gig)
- custom view of topic which includes related gig
I am planning to document how I implemented these and to clean up the code so I can release it to others. In the meantime, if anyone has any feedback (positive or negative ) it will be very much appreciated. Thanks.
