There's a new Discussion Group feature this morning..

When you're reading a message you created there's now a big button at the top of the message that says Edit this Page.

When you click it, a new page loads with a place for you to change the subject and the body text of the message.

Jim Roepcke said: "Great for editorial systems, kinda funky for a discussion group!" I couldn't have said it better myself. This is consistent with the direction that we're going in. We are developing this discussion group as a key element in our web collaboration environment.

It's simple, now people can make spelling corrections, or correct links, or expand on an idea, or clarify a statement. In other words, editing is enabled.

We will expand this thru XML-RPC, allowing tools such as graphics programs, text editors, outliners, script editors, etc to be used in editing the content stored in the discussion group database.


There are responses to this message:
