Thoughts on integrating moot.it into Joomla 3?

Post by kaufmancrew » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:25 pm

We're considering using the new moot (moot.it) service as a forum within our Joomla 3.0-based podcast site. Integration requires some modification to the head tag (adding a stylesheet and two script tags) and then a placeholder tag in the body.

Though we are happy Joomla users, we aren't developers. What are your thoughts about the best way to integrate something like moot into a Joomla 3 site?

Thank you for your help!

I made you a quick plugin that should do the trick.

Install it, and go into the plugin through admin. Set your moot.it username on the "Basic" tab. Be sure it's published.

Then create an article and place the tag {mootit} in the article - when the page is displayed, it will replace the tag with the forum.

You can also use {mootitblog} or {mootitcomments} to show the different mootit views.

If it doesn't work, go back into the plugin options, and turn on the jQuery option.

Let me know if you have questions!
