Resetera is a great resource for developers to make their apps more powerful and provide better experiences to users. Resetera is a community forum with people from all over the world, discussing topics related to R programming, R’s data science ecosystem and making use of R in web, mobile, and server-side code. The Resetera forum is a community that provides a toolkit to learn about and get into R programming.

Reporting Posts and Commenters

By Jeff Huber

I spend a lot of time reading posts on the RPhate subreddit. Many of these posts cover how to improve their portal. Some of the solutions seem complicated. As an RPhate contributor myself, I’ve seen these come and go from different active solutions. Sometimes there is no clear solution. So I thought I’d put together this article so anyone can understand what makes for a great, easy-to-read dashboard.

First, a few general questions you should ask yourself when considering a solution:

Does the solution provide a clear way to post a new report? I’ve seen several, for instance, that simply require an “new” in the front of the comment and that is it. This seems like a poor way to organize a data entry system.

The Proving Grounds (AKA Flaming)

Mike Grabek Blocked Unblock Follow Following Jan 20, 2017

This week I was browsing around the forums and came across a poster describing how there was a subforum with a number of people questioning the legitimacy of the forum. I decided to investigate further to see if this was the case.

What was I looking for?

There are two types of forum. One type of forum is designed for a limited userbase, users need to participate in a few things to get the best out of it. These things include answering a certain percentage of questions or simply posting in certain groups.

Analytics in Content Management Systems: The Resetera Forum: Analysis, Learning, Best Practices

Last month, I gave a talk at the 2017 Resetera Forum in San Francisco. The format of the talk was pretty standard: I took a play-by-play of the content analytics for the recent Resetera release and walked through the mechanics of what it means to build an Analytics in Content Management System (CMS). During my talk, I also gave a brief update on my team’s efforts to translate our content analytics model from Resetera to content management system (CMS) data.
