Shawn's Feature Requests
Not sure if any of these have been proposed before:

1. To be more organized, under "hot" "new" "top rated" tab, the ability to select which category's post to display. For example, to only display the "hot" "new" "top rated" posts under the "feature requests" category.

2. The ability for admin to create multiple categories, For example, for a community sharing news and tips for smartphones, the ability to create the 1st category based on companies (Apple, Sumsung, Nokia....) and 2nd category based on phone types (for Apple, iphone 4, iphone 5...., for Sumsung, Galaxy S2, S3....).

3. To echo other's thoughts about the commenting system, a powerful commenting system would be key to the success of a community based on SE5 which is all about sharing and commenting IMO. It should be able to

A: handle hundreds of comments
B: handle multiple layers of comments
C. easily browse first or last comments
D: ........

I hope you can consider some of these features. Thanks!

    monti Shawn, I love and share your suggestions.

    I want the sub category idea as well: https://community.socialengine.com/post/1005/sub-categories-for-posting

    1. That's already implemented, just not setup here on this demo. The feed widget lets you specify a category and sorting method, and you can create multiple pages with any label you want for each combo of these settings.

    2. Currently the admin can only create one set of categories. But we'll think about a 2-tiered category option.

    3. Totally agree with you. This baked-in commenting system supports flat comments or layered comments, voting or likes, etc. You can also easily replace it with Disqus or Facebook Comments

      beanorama Alex, I'm really interested in this "feed widget." I'd really like to specify a category and sorting method to display on special pages. Yet I'm not finding it anywhere in the software or documentation. Can you point it out to me?

      [37,Alex Benzer] Please consider #2 sub categories will refine the content.

        Shawn Ye Nice graph you've made, exactly what I mean and want. I am glad there are more voices on this feature!

          monti Yes, I hope so too. Sub categories will refine content and make it more direct.
