It would be nice to have an interface to the Facebook pages here. Then one would only have to come here for everything. Perhaps a link to the Kickstarter stuff as well.
This obviously would require some development from the Forum Developers but I could imagine that others who use this flavor of Forum software would find it useful as well. It may be that it could be generalized to support links to anywhere on the net. Now by links I’m not talking about a simple URL type link but a way to have everything that goes across the Facebook page to be echoed here in a special topic.
A Facebook PORTAL?
A Kickstarter PORTAL?
A Thingverse PORTAL?
As I look into this “Discourse” forum software, they do have plug-ins and some support for doing this PORTAL kind of thing.
It’s called a “Facebook OneBox plugin” but I don’t think that is exactly what I’m thinking about.
By “PORTAL” I was meaning that it was like an embedded window to those places. So you don’t actually have to open up a new browser tab or window to it. Don’t know if there is any great utility to doing that or not. I went to this description of “Basic Link” and I’m not fully understanding how it works.
