Create first topic when registering

I’m building a private forum that has an icebreaker category to help the members of my community connect with one another when they first join.

I’d like to add a text box to the registration page where users can answer an icebreaker question that is then automatically added to the icebreaker category as their first topic.

I’ve signed up for other private online communities that use Discourse that have this feature. So I know it’s possible. I just can’t figure out how to do it.

If it’s relevant, I’m using the Standard hosted Discourse plan. And I’m currently working with the Discourse registration page, not an offsite one.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!

This is going to require a custom plugin sadly. This is not going to be possible on the Discourse standard/business plan.


@nicolecolter (plus annoying 20 req’ment)


I guess that must be the one (or one of them)
