How do I create a whisper post?

(Felix Freiberger) #1

Whispers are a staff-only feature that allows for private discussion between staff members inside a public topic.

Before whisper can be used, they need to be enabled by an administrator by checking enable whispers in site settings.

When enabled, all staff members can create a whisper by starting to create a reply as usual, selecting the :gear: icon in the toolbar and clicking Toggle whisper:

The composer will indicate that the reply is a whisper by showing (whisper) next to the title.

How to whisper?
Allow post author to see/reply to whisper posts
Task manager within Discourse?
Unable to retroactively make a post reply into a whisper
Hide replies from trust levels

Has the “when the last post is a whisper unread needs to be dismissed” thing been fixed yet?

No, and it looks like it’s going to take a while (would need a major refactor).
