Hello! This is my first post, so please be kind if I’m asking stupid questions.
It’s my understanding one can set-up Discourse so that only Patreon users can post questions. That’s exactly what I want. However, I would also like the forum to be public-facing so that it’s still crawled by Google and readable to visitors.
So, is it possible for me to have a public-facing forum where only Patreon patrons can comment? Furthermore, if I wanted to turn off the option for visitors to post anonymously, is it possible to do this without hiding the entire forum? Or does the anonymous option have to be left on in order to allow “non-logged-in” bots to crawl it?
I sure hope my questions make sense…
Thanks for any help you can provide!
