Rebuild required. The rebuild will update package versions to latest, and must be completed if the site has not be been rebuilt from the command line in the last few days.
The Share Topic modal has been overhauled. Topic invites have been updated to take advantage of the updated user invites system. “Inviting” an existing user has been renamed to “Notify”.
Staff can now configure user fields to be searchable, allowing users to find others by custom fields.
Did your colleague upload yet another meme? Friend sharing the latest TikTok craze? They may be fun to look at once, or twice, or six times, but sometimes they just get distracting and you want them to stop. All animated images, like
gif, now include a pause button. Hover over the image with your mouse to see the pause button in the bottom right. On mobile, tap anywhere on the image.
Note that gifs will automatically be paused when the
prefers-reduced-motion accessibility flag is enabled.
Discourse automatically trims signatures and other “extra” content from incoming emails. Some sites prefer that such content remains. Sites wishing to disable email trimming can now use the
trim incoming emails site setting to do so.
Additional changes have been made to the poll builder following feedback from the overhaul made in beta7. This includes a text area instead of text fields when using the advanced builder, allowing users to paste poll options.
Login required sites, by definition, require a login to access. Anonymous users - those not logged in - cannot see content, only the login page. Discourse still counts anonymous user’s visits to the login page, which has caused confusion among site admins thinking their content is visible. To avoid confusion, anonymous pageviews of the login page will no longer be counted on such sites.
Videos come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, videos also come in many different codecs. Not every device/browser supports all codecs. When a video cannot be played, Discourse now displays a warning to the user, instead of simply displaying a broken video.
