How do I create a whisper post?

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:

Whispers are permanent, there is no way to convert a whisper to a normal post, nor is there a way to convert a normal post to a whisper. If you need to do so delete the whisper and re-post.
