I would love to see the recipe program at http://phprecipebook.sourceforge.net turned into a plugin. It does not seem that it would be all that difficult, but then again, I am not a php programmer.

I have been to several GL sites and a ton of Nuke sites that have recipe sections. Most of them seem to be Family sites. I own a hosting company and would be willing to offer Hosting in trade for this.

I'm working on a site where I'd like to be able to divide users into two groups -- professionals and amateurs. I'd like the amateurs to be able to see everyone's article and comment postings, but I'd like to offer the professionals the option of screening out postings submitted by amateurs. Any help you could provide with this would be great!

There's an option to do this under the user functions. A person can check which aliases he doesn't want to read posts from. I noticed this works on stories but the ignored posters' comments will still show up.

I would love to see someone do a recurring events fix for the calendar system... it's not a plugin per se but it would be awesome and it's much needed! Smile Peace, Ken

How about a gallery plugin that allows for voting on each of the images, but once you've voted for any image, then your voting priviledge is revoked. Sort of a Best Picture of the Month type thing...

That's the right functionality, but it works only on an individual basis; what I'm looking for is a way to designate 2 classes of people and allow people in the one class (the professionals) never to see postings by people in the other class (the amateurs). Thanks for the suggestion, though.

If these two groups are the only readers of your site you can do this with the current permissions settings. For the amateurs' posts, you can uncheck the "members" and "anonymous" blocks then no one other than them will see their stories. If there are others reading the site besides these two groups, this won't work since they will be excluded too. There does seem to be a need for some mechanism like your describing. A mask to account for oddball situations.

That's awesome! Where can I find the hack? This is a hack I really need given my boneheadedness about missing appointments! Smile I think what I'm talking about is different though. I'm talking about an event hack that allows you to create one event that happens say every other Sunday or something like that. Currently with the GL events module you have to actually go and add that event for every occurence... i.e., enter the event for March 2nd but then you have to go and enter the event for March 9th too. It would work much better if you just entered the event once and the calendar automatically populated the event for every other Sunday for a specific period of time. Does that make sense? Thanks! -Ken

I hadn't thought of doing it that way, but there are a couple of problems. 1. The administrator would have to go through manually and change permissions for each story; I'd like to be able to have it done automatically. 2. This will work only for stories, not for comments. My main concern is to allow the professionals to screen out comments by amateurs. Any other ideas? Thanks again....

I'd like to see a review & ratings system. I'm trying to figure out how to implement a photo/movie review and rating system into my site - having a difficult time. I'd like the following functions: login individual categories: (ex:movie images, titles, photos) review posting (basically a story block) 4-6 drop-down boxes for rating elements (i.e. editing, lighting, music, acting, story, etc.) overall rating box integration with previous ratings to give average score Wow - I know this would be quite a task - but it would have so many uses rather than just movies. What do you think??

Actually, I'd like this as well. I run a family site and several of them have asked for a way to share recipes online. :-)
