from the can-it-be-done dept.
I'd like to be able to nest subfolders of Squishdot postings under the main Squishdot site. The idea is to allow more focused items and discussions to remain separate from the main site and other "sub sites". This doesn't seem like it should be too difficult to accomplish.
The problem I'm trying to solve is this: I'm building an intranet-type site for my company that has general company-level announcements and discussions. But I also want separate "subsites" for individual projects so that low-level postings and discussions can happen without spamming the entire company. Yet it should be possible to occasionally include a posting from a "subsite" in the parent site, eg. for project announcements that the whole company should know about.
It seems like this should be pretty do-able. Perhaps a new object type called "Squishdot folder" could be created to make it easy to drop in nested folders of discussions. The main index_html method could be modified slightly to make better use of aquisition. This would allow for specific rightbox_methods within subfolders, different topic images, etc. Folders could be displayed in the leftmost column under the "post / search / admin" choices.
Comments? Flames? I'd be happy to play around with the code to see if I can hack together a version of this. I think it would add a whole new dimension of usability to Squishdot.
