One of our customer’s sites gave me an idea earlier that was well-received by the team so I’d like to hear what the community thinks of it.
Do you think it’d be pretty cool if plugins automatically injected a “how to use me” page into a meta topic when enabled? Kind of like what these people are doing:
It’d be very useful if plugins could ‘announce’ themselves like this with a short post like that in the forum’s default Meta category (is there one? oh, wait, there isn’t. that’s another discussion).
- hidden by default on existing sites (that have existed for a certain $duration)
- a note to @staff explaining these announcements (especially on existing sites) that can be moved into a public place
This would let forum users know about extra features that may not be present on other sites and ease the burden on site leaders explaining how these features work.
