Im curious to hear more about what any of you are using to build "community"/ "forum" messaging options into your craft cms site.
From what I've found it seems there would be a couple of interesting options
Socialize Plugin https://dukt.net/craft/socialize
Its in private beta and I haven't tried it but it seems to have a lot of the features we would need.
The big option questions would be how to manage any group messaging features but maybe you just have a "posts" channel that users can post to?
Allows for an iframe type integration. Seems to be pretty full featured but wouldnt really share any data (or logins) with craft, would be a visual integration only
Any other options
We aren't looking for a ton of features, just a way for people to login, share text and photos, and comment on those posts.
Curious if anyone out there has tackled a problem like this?
