Hey Steve. Any plans to create an equivalent plugin for Joomla?

steve

Good question, Ken.
This Flag module is pretty different from anything WordPress or Joomla normally offer. Flag is very much more abstract than most WP plugins or Joomla extensions.
I suspect the closest Joomla equivalents would have more specific use cases such as “Favorites”, “Mark as Offensive” or “Bookmarks”.

Thanks Steve. I’ve used Favorites before, but did not feel like it did what I wanted. In the end, I’ll probably end up writing my own.
Merry Christmas to you Steve and all of OSTraining.

Thanks Ken. If you do, we’d love to see it!
