The number one request when creating a blogging platform or portal on-top of Oracle Content Management is the ability to enable Community Comments against article posts - unfortunately there are no official components that Oracle supply to handle this today.
With that said OCM has a powerful Conversation Tool now built in (Previously known as Oracle Social Network & Ontrack prior that).
The OOTB interface doesn't look very special but the capabilities of the Conversation API make it very powerful for creating a headless threaded discussion for sites.
Features you can enable when writing a threaded discussion using the API:
- Conversation Thread Creation
Enables you to create public or closed off private member conversation groups/huddles
- Associate & Upload documents to a thread
Allow users to add documents, images to a comment in the thread
- Parent Child Message hierarchy
Enable multilevel replies to comments
- Flag a comment
Allows a user to flag a comment to an admin
- Hashtag Support
Allows users to assign hashtags against comments that are searchable
- User Tagging @user
Highlight a conversation to a user
- Conversation reference
Add a reference to another conversation
Allow users to like a conversation or comment
- all users who can comment will have to have an IDCS account associated with OCM.
If you do use the Conversation API - please connect; I'd love to see what you build and feel free to ping me on any questions.
