Update and Discussion #5

Hi there!

It’s me Don again, and I’ve got some good news, the forum is alllllllmost finished.

Currently, here are the main features that have been completed:

  • Allowing Excel file uploads.
  • Tagging posts.
  • Commenting on/discussing questions and answers.
  • Voting on questions and answers.
  • Selecting an answer to your question.
  • Searching the forum and adding filters for keywords/tags and if the question was answered or not, as well as ordering the results by date or how many votes the question has.
  • Viewing all posts that have certain tags.
  • Calculating reputation points based on how many votes your questions and answers have gotten.

Here is a list of some features that still need to be finished:

  • Allowing the you to save tag/search settings in a custom list so that you can easily get back to that view in order to see only the questions that you want to see.
  • Instituting reputation checks for certain features. This means that a user will not be able to vote or include links in a post until they have gained enough reputation. All other features should be available to a user the moment they sign-up for the forum.

I won’t bore you with the small details that still need to be put in place since those are all behind the scenes things.

We are slowly getting there… 🙂  I am very excited about how everything has turned-out so far and your input has been a great help!!!

We are almost there so please stick with me a  little longer!

As always, leave your thoughts, tips, and suggestions, in the comments below!
