Minimum required tags before posting a new topic

Related to this question: Maximum Tags & Disallow Tags Per Category - #9 by Drew-ART

Is it possible to set a minimum number of required tags before a person is able to create a new topic?

Do you mean per person, as in they must have previously used a certain number of tags in order to continue to be able to post? Or just that a new post must have at least N tags?

If the latter, that’s easy — set the “Minimum number of tags required in a topic” config option for the category:


Hi @mattdm,

Yep, it’s that one. Thanks for your questions and help. Great news that this feature exists.

Oddly enough I don’t have the same view as you’ve shared @mattdm. I have a Tags menu in my Admin console yet no “Minimum number of tags required in a topic”.

I wonder if someone from the Discourse team could help.

It’s in the category settings. :+1:


Ah, crikey. There it is! :man_facepalming:t2:

Thanks for sharing, @JammyDodger.
