Conversation Spaces Plugin 1.0.1
The Conversation spaces plugin brings a new conversational dimension to JCMS. It provides a vehicle for contacts and interactivity between people interested in specific subjects. In a sense the conversation space is the successor of the traditional forum. This plugin presently supports three types of conversation space: suggestion box, collaborative FAQ or Forum.
A conversation space is managed by one or several animators. It is also possible to assign an expert group. Users start a discussion on a precise subject, often an idea, a question or a topic. The other members can participate at several levels, by posting reactions, answers and remarks or by voting. These votes help identify the most interesting ideas, the most relevant questions and the best answers. In this manner, the members help to enhance the value of the information.
By default, points and comments aren't activated on Forum. You can activate the points by modifying Forum type.
Conversation Space Community allows to regroup one Suggestion Box, one Social FAQ, and one Forum into one content.
The iPhone plugin makes conversation spaces accessible via an iPhone or Android smartphone. The interface enables remote participation (consult, vote, contribute) in all the user's spaces.
