EasyDiscuss 2.0 sneak preview

EasyDiscuss 2.0 sneak preview

First of all, I would like to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everybody had an awesome dinner last night.

By the way, I am Ajmal, the new hire here at Stackideas as the marketing guy. What can be more exciting for the new guy to start off than to announce the latest updates about one of our products, EasyDiscuss!

 

Notifications

In EasyDiscuss 2.0, there will be a new feature "Notifications". There will be a notification bar that notifies logged in users about EasyDiscuss activities on the site.

Enhanced toolbar

The toolbar now sports a better look including tooltips for each icon. Fresh and sharper for overall looks.

Badges

'Badges' is a new feature added to help make EasyDiscuss more engaging and fun to use! You can now create a badge for each action (we called them "rules") that available in EasyDiscuss. For instance, you can create a badge (totally customized) for user who answers a discussion thread (then say, a new badge for answering more than 10 discussion threads).

Improved interface

The discussion has some UI improvements to enhance user experience with EasyDiscuss. Replies now has a 'hide' option, 'Like' and 'Resolved' has been revamped and many more.

Profile

User profile has been polished and restructured. Profile now has a tabbed navigation for posted and replied discussions, together with tags that are created.

What do you guys think about the upcoming EasyDiscuss 2.0? Let us know in the comment.

Looks great.

A feature badly needed is an automatic search for existing questions to prevent duplicate or similar questions from being posted.

Do you have or plan to have a Follow feature so a person can follow another user who provides good answers?

Check out focus.com as they are doing a questions and answers based system that is getting traction with business users.

Since we will be able to create Badges, can you tell us what the dimensions of a badge icon are so we can start creating them ahead of time?

Please work on a tight integration with jomsocial?

Also would be great for users to administer their own notification, topic and category subscriptions (including online notifications, emails and jomsocial notifications).

Would be great to have a module suggest topics that match a users community profile (i.e if I have 'graphic design' as a profile selection the easydiscuss module will suggest I answer a question that contains 'graphic design').

Lastly would be great if we can 'invite'...

Great work guys, looking forward.

Hi there,

Thanks for your kind words. We are in the phase of ironing out bugs and making EasyDiscuss stable on its own first, but surely will give our best to include integration with popular extensions like JomSocial.

You can make these feature requests available inside our forum. It's logical for us to push popular requested features on top of our integration list, and by having them list down there will help us monitor these requests from customers.

Thanks again!

Hey, hey, hey!

Is the new version going to capable of integrating into Community Builder?
So that if someone clicks on your picture, it goes to CB profile instead of the built in profile function. Thank ya.

Is it a easy way of upgrading from previous version without breaking the content (users, discussions and threads)?

  Attachments

I can't wait to update to this version!
It may be the best Yahoo! like answer software in the joomla.
I also purchase other Yahoo like Answer system.
But I think Easy Discuss2.0 will be the best.
And the awesome personal badges is a good feature.
Users' profile should be tight integration with jomsocial.

Hey Jeremy,

There's a class prefix based on the author that replies. You can actually style them accordingly :)
