Admins can now edit the Community section () of the header dropdown navigation menu to set defaults that suit their communities. They are free to add / remove / re-order items, and change icons and links. In this release, the navigation menu also has support for adding sub-subcategories.
User tips were introduced in Discourse 3.0, but are now enabled by default to continue supporting users new to Discourse.
To make the new hashtag system consistent across Discourse, we unified styles across categories, tags, chat channels and the autocomplete system. After positive feedback to the feature, we enabled it across all Discourse sites.
To help site staff merge topics/PMs and support various use cases for their sites, Discourse now offers the option to preserve chronological order in the resulting topic/PM before a merge.
We replaced the “1 message in your admins inbox” PM with a simple notification in the notification menu that takes admins to the information they need, directly on the admin dashboard.
There’s more! Feel free to go through a longer list of features in the 2nd post below.
This release includes fixes for these security issues reported by our community and HackerOne.
