Thanks to Michael's link (DOH! when Quora didn't have the answer I didn't think to downshift to Google) it seems they site "Scoop" as their "newsroom CMS". But looking at the Scoop home page it seems to be dated/all but abandoned.

For their blogs and things like Room for Debate, WordPress is their CMS of choice. I don't know what they are using for the main site.

NYTimes invested, I believe, $30M in WordPress (Automattic) a few years ago.

Time to build a plugin - I say!

Commenting in the forums is tied to each specific post. What David's trying to accomplish seems to be more of a "publishing" type-debate style.

If you review the link I sent out, you'll see what I mean.

You can comment on the forums. They have changed the bbPress setup somewhat. I use it as a "discussion" area, and it's great. You can add media too which is really cool; like video and photos, i.e. Makes it a much more interesting experience. Really don't know if there is anything else out there of its kind that does quite that (using Wordpress). Is there?

Yes, you can do that. Agreed. You don't need WordPress, which is why I said its an independent project. It can live on its own or be tied to a self-hosted WordPress site or to a BuddyPress install.

However, it's still not the best tool for what David is trying to accomplish. Any forum software would then work, but he's trying to do a debate style with commenting, which is more like the "Room For Debate" tool that NYTimes.com employees.

Actually, you can use bbPress without Buddypress as a straight closed forum. It's just another Wordpress plugin. You don't need Buddypress for it (although, you can if you want). Otherwise your site is just another Wordpress site.

Well, they're reloading the page and not using jQuery to toggle between the debate participants or AJAX to populate the content, but it's a start.

Tony, I’m not sure which page of the NYTimes site you’re referring to?

 

Thanks to everyone for their help with this. I appreciate the ideas.

Sorry - hit send by accident.

 

The best best is to mimic how the New York Times does this. Basically, you've got to display the post of each author who blogs into a category. Then you pull in the posts by category and author and display them with some jQuery action to flip between the posts an load them using AJAX.

 

You load those posts in a custom.php page you create and then slap in the comments engine below the posts.

 

I haven't seem a plugin that does this yet, but if you search the terms of the section that the New York Times does this in, maybe you'll come up with a hit.

 

I still use Intense Debate for comments because I'm not convinced Facebook comments is a good idea, even though it has proven to increase audience engagement. Just hard to fix on one solution that forces people to use Facebook, even I they don't want to. So, I'm using both on certain posts for now.

How about bbpress, the Buddypress forum that works with Wordpress? That might work well for you.

 

Best,

Basically you want something like LiveScribble or CoverItLive where non contributing viewers see the posts but cant add content however I don’t know if they have any “special integration” into wordpress but basically its just an iframe so easy to do.

Thanks. This is an interesting app, but not exactly what I’m looking for. Here’s what we’re trying to do. We want to have 5 experts and a moderator discuss one topic area. The 5 experts would present their ideas, and then respond to each other in a closed forum. Outside comments would be welcome, but they wouldn’t be the primary part of how the discussion is displayed.
