I’m looking to have a single category in which users can submit topics that are then automatically hidden to everyone besides themselves and staff. Any ideas on how I can make this possible? Thanks
Having a write-only category has come up a few times. (Here is one).
There’s no easy way to make some topics visible and others not, but if there were a write-only category you could then move topics to another category that had read permissions when they were approved (or whatever the use case was).
This is already possible - just use a message to yourself. When you’re ready to post it, copy/paste and done. Or if that’s too much effort ask an admin to make the message into a public topic.
No, I was looking to allow users to submit “applications” via threads that were then automatically hidden for staff review
Hmm. I will find a way around it. Are there any “form” plugins for Discourse?
you mean topic templates?
back to messages: you can also start messages using a URL which might suit you… the URL could contain the required information.
How about a personal message to
Yeah, this could work. I think that’s how we’ll do things till I find time to create a custom form on our static site.
