Merge two Discourses
It’s not ready for production yet, but the beginnings of a script to consolidate two different Discourse instances has been created. I’m really looking forward to this existing. The current process of exporting and importing works but takes a fair bit of time to get right.
Full screen videos
This is a plugin built by the ProCourse team. It allows embedded videos to be viewed in full screen without needing to navigate off of Discourse to do so.

Blog on trust levels

This button is gold! It’s one that I explored building a while back but never had the time to do it right. Thankfully, Osama pulled it off. Big thanks to the team on this one.

He was very interested in the idea and this past week, we launched it! So if you’re into the show or have a interest in Apple gear, join in here:
