I’m new to administering a Discourse forum, so pardon this question.
I’m considering installing about 10 plugins listed at https://github.com/discourse/all-the-plugins/tree/master/plugins onto our new Discourse site.
Before I go ahead and install them, I’m wondering if there are any ‘gotchas’ that I should be aware of? I’m thinking of things like compatibility issues, forsaken plugins, etc. Will any of the plugins listed cause potential problems with updates to the core Discourse engine in the future?
Is there a reference I can read that will give me an appreciation for the developer’s policy in this regard?
I’m beginning to see a bit of a trend in the admin aspects of Discourse.
It appears that the forum admin controls many parameters that a server admin role is usually responsible for, and here there is a need for ssh access to the server. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, nor desirable for that matter.
