Anonymous posting -- but retaining original user permissions


(Josef) #1

Hello; we are hosting a live chat in our Discourse community on the topic of making a career switch, and we’d like to enable our members to have the option of participating anonymously to protect their privacy given the chat topic. However, when I went to test out the anonymity feature, I found that I lost access to the members-only sections of our Discourse community – we are hosting this live chat in one of our members-only categories.

Is there any way that users can anonymize themselves while retaining their original permissions to access locked categories on Discourse?

Not at the current time, no.
