How best to manage events in discourse - possibly each day as a category


(jon) #1

We have a bunch of events that we want people to discuss, post pictures, comment on etc… All of this seems fine but I do need some overarching structure and was wondering if Discourse could provide that. It would seem that one possibility for structuring events would be have a category for each date. Like “June 15, 2014”, “June 15, 2015”, etc… Is there an alternative way to do this? Also, it looks like Discourse supports one subcategory - is that correct?

thx

I’d suggest a category for events, and try to keep it to 1 topic per event, but maybe a few is okay. It’s up to you.

thx riking - basically everything would be an event and the most import info would be the date like show everything for June 01, 2014 . Would what you’re proposing satisfy that?

How about encouraging people to put the date in the title somewhere?

yeah, that’s one sol’n but would be very prone to error. would prob go with building a category for each date before I trust users to do that.
