I am using discourse API and creating categories and topics for my forum. I already have a default topic to be created for every category. So, I want to disable and not create “about the” topics for every category.
I think this came up before and the answer was that they will be created but can be unlisted (not 100% sure).
If you’re doing more than a few dozens, this probably isn’t what you want to do.
Then you almost certainly want to put that default topic stuff into the “about” topic, or modify the category record to recognize your default topic as the “about” one (which should be reasonably straighforward). I’m not sure if you can do that via the API (hard or impossible).
