[REBOL] Re: AE Forum

From: gavin::mckenzie::sympatico::ca at: 9-Jul-2001 20:22

Hey..this is really cool. I'm going to read over the source...but my motivation isn't really to build a set of 'forums'; rather, I've been thinking (note *thinking* rather than *doing*) about writing something to provide a talkback/feedback facility for a given webpage. Ya know how news articles, and places like Aint It Cool News will provide a way for feedback to be chained onto the bottom of the page, or at least linked to the page? Anyway...I'm just wondering if you'd had any thoughts on whether the forums code would be easily repurposed into a feedback mechanism. On a simple level I can imagine trying to rig it so that a separate topic is created for a page that wants to support 'feedback' style discussion. Something like...whenever I create a new content page for my site, I somehow initialize a discussion thread and link it into my content page. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Regardless, this is way cool. Gavin.
