Marking solutions as the official answer


Wonder if you could help explain why sometimes I am able to mark a post as the official answer (with a tick) and at other times, the tickmark is not available for selection on the post that is the solution?


It depends if the category allows solved or not. So you’d edit the category to allow this behavior.


Ah, super :slight_smile: Thanks Jeff! I’ll edit the categories!

There is also a site settings that globally allows users to mark as solved a topic in all the categories (in case you want to enable the solution anywhere).
Otherwise, just enable the solution on some categories as you are doing.


Thank you @trash :slight_smile: Appreciated!

Just wondering what categories allow you to mark solutions @codinghorror

#support and #installation from memory.


Ok thank you for the information

@Dax I was looking for that setting under /admin/site_settings/category/all_results?filter= but couldn’t find anything related to marking solutions as the official answer.

Could you please give me a hint where to find it?

Thanks! :wave::slightly_smiling_face:

Is GitHub - discourse/discourse-solved: Allow accepted answers on topics installed on your site?


@Dax not yet, thanks! I didn’t know it required an additional plugin to be installed first. :kissing_closed_eyes:
