I am a new discourse user and first want to thank everyone on here for having built such an amazing platform. We thought for a long time what would be the best solution for our Forum and I am so happy we went with Discourse. Whenever I think “could we maybe do this” I google it and there is away of doing it in Discourse. It’s amazing, thanks a lot!
Now there is one issue I am trying to solve, but cannot find an answer to yet, so I wanted to ask.
We are an online language school that teaches different languages and users join our forum automatically when they sign up to our website. I want to put users into groups automatically when they sign up depending on the language they study which will then mute categories for languages they dont study (at the moment I do it manually, but we will automize the process)
Later, people might choose to study another language or to study 2 languages at the same time. So they might be switching between groups, maybe leaving the group Chinese and join Japanese instead or join both at the same time.
I am trying to understand how the muting of categories works when people switch or are members of several groups.
So I understand when I join a group that mutes categories for it’s members, these categories turn muted for me. Now my questions are:
- If I leave that group, will they be unmuted?
- If I remain a member but join another group that has set the same categories set to for example “tracking” will the muted groups be changed to “tracking” or remain muted?
- What happens if the user manually unmuted a category and then joins a group that mutes that category. Will it be muted again?
