We are using discourse with SSO and it works great.
However, I am running into an odd situation.
- We are leveraging Discourse private messaging links on our external site (paddling.com) to spawn a new private message on discourse (forums.paddling.com).
- If the user is logged in to the forums, it works exactly as expected.
- If the user logs in to paddling.com (but doesn’t go to the forums first) when the user clicks on the link to spawn a new message, it simply opens the forums (without spawning a new message)
- If the user clicks on the message link a second time, then the message works.
Here is an example classified ad so you can see the process:
I found one reference that could work.:
