Use discourse for news publication


(C├ędric Krier) #1

In the process of redesigning the website, I propose to use a discourse category for that. The reason is that the edition is much user-friendly, it will allow to have comments and we will be able to schedule the publication. Also discourse provides a RSS feed.
Here is how I see the workflow. There is a private category where the news are prepared (it already exists) between a selected team of people (we could give for a news access to a specific user). We have a second category news which is public, ordered by publishing date. The access rights will be: Everyone: Reply / See, Communication: Create / Reply / See. The news are scheduled to be published on the public category once they are ready.
On the website the link http://www.tryton.org/news/index.html redirect to the discourse news category and the link http://www.tryton.org/rss.xml to the category rss.
On the new website design, the last three news could be rendered by using the RSS feed.
