I really need to post my thoughts more often. I shall endeavour to do so…
Just posting my thoughts (very random) about what I could do using a WordPress site to facilitate a software project, discussion and community… Some item’s follow…
Categories for the WordPress site could include.
|What||Description||Page or Category in WordPress. Who can post.|
|Learn More||brochure pages (restricted to Admin only post)||Page. Admin only.|
|Blog||wordpress posts (restricted to Admin only post, show on front page)||Category. Admin only.|
|Request Features||uservoice, ideatorrent (vote up/down a FR)||Category. All.|
|Discuss||stackoverflow style, anyone can post (reputations / badges)||Category. All.|
|Help||stack overflow (mark as correct answer, reputations / badges)||Category. All.|
|Bugs||stack overflow (reputations / badges) + other fields – status (new, verified, fixed, duplicate)||Category. All.|
|Documentation||like CodeIgniter or PHP manual style, user comments/additions to each page + versioned (reputations / badges)||Category. Admin only start page, then All can comment.|
|F.A.Q||wordpress posts (restricted to Admin only post)||Category. Admin only.|
|Example Reports||for submission by users and download (reputations / badges)||Category. All to submit – Admin to approve.|
|Example Groups||for submission by users and download (reputations / badges)||Category. All to submit – Admin to approve.|
|ChangeLogs||auto generated from Bazaar commits||Page. Admin only.|
|Download||releases, trunk||Page. Admin only.|
|Demo||installed demo version of OAv2||Page. Admin only.|
|Statistics||accept “in OAv2″ report of how many and what types of devices (anonymise data before submission. Need to code this into OAv2). Show stats.||Page. Admin only.|
Logon using OpenID (hopefully to hamper Spammers)
Askimet – again, for the spammers.
Users can post only when two previous posts approved.
How to enable the existing members to approve a post ? Set a minimum approved post count, before someone can approve other posts ? How to ?
WordPress to role “member” means people can register (using OpenID) and then post articles that can only appear in certain categories (Help/ Support, General Discussion).
If anyone would like to donate to help hosting / domain name costs, we accept them via PayPal.
I’m trying out WordPress with OpenID and Akismet to see if it’s a better platform than phpBB3. The damn spammers have ruined the Open-AudIT.org board…
