sorry for my english, i’m using google translate
I left Wordpress, to enter Discourse and I saw a lot of evolution, I am very satisfied with Discourse. But there’s a feature that my members miss wordpress a lot
it would be great if you could create, everyone at Discourse will love it!
In wordpress, there is a very interesting plugin, this plugin works like this: You go to the text box, click on the word GIF, and it opens a menu, in this menu you insert the link of any GIF with a command that you want used to enter in the text box. For example, I save a link to a crying gif, with the command LOL3, every time I type LOL3 in the text box, the gif I saved will automatically appear, without me having to go after the link and put it in the box of text! To make it easier to find the GIFs, when you save them, a thumbnail appears (So you don’t forget which gif is from that command) I’ll leave a video for you to see better:
Nothing is stored in Discourse, it’s just a link caller with command/phrases
I saw that in Discourse there is a Watched Words option, in which I can replace one sentence with another, but this option can only be used by admins (Should be released for everyone) and when I use a command (Sentence) to replace with a link, this link is not incorporated into the text and also, the gif of the link I saved does not appear, making it difficult to find.
I can save a command (phrase) with a gif link
Would it be possible to release Watched Words for everyone? And is there a way to embed the links that people use in Watched Words and have the gifs of the saved links appear to facilitate the search?
I can save a command (phrase) with a gif link (MAs are not released to all forum users)
When the gif link is saved, a GIF thumbnail does not appear to find it later (Because in wordpress, there are people who had more than 500 gifs saved, so appearing the gif thumbnail would make the search easier)
It would be interesting if the links saved by command/phrases appeared with thumbnails to facilitate the search
When I use the command/phrase “oi” it automatically substitutes for the link I entered in Watched Words, but the link doesn’t embed the gif in the text box, it would be nice if it did
In my country gifs are very cultural, each person uses a different gif or meme, everyone has their own gif and meme folder to use! This feature makes it much easier on the forums and reduces bureaucracy for those who use cell phones, as they just need to type the command and they don’t have to look for gif links
