My digital garden has a number of interesting, useful, and fun features, largely enabled by using Discourse as a content platform. Click back there to read more about that, but here are a few of my favorite things.
- Tags to indicate what “stage of growth” a topic is in
- Link color varies for internal vs. external links
- Open registration and ability to login with various credentials
- I want to encourage interaction and dialog
- RSS feeds and email or push notifications for content updates
- Backlinks (in the footer of every post)
