How to keep anonymous posts to only 1 category?


I’d like to disallow anon posts anywhere but the Anonymous category. Is there a way to do that? Searched but didn’t find anything.

Disallow doesn’t exist as a permission, but there may be a roundabout way to achieve this.

Take a look at this post:

You can configure permissions on a single category tied to the group in the above, with permissions to post create/reply/see in that one category.

It will mean that you need to set explicit permissions on your other categories though, and group everyone by default, which is much more work.

The discourse-anonymous-categories plugin may be useful here, but the official release is broken. This fork by @Daniel_Lopes may work though.


Thanks, that sounds like way too much work lol.

Some other time :slight_smile:
