Modifying roles and permission

I am having self hosted discourse site and want to modify name of the roles and permission. PLs let me know if it is possible and how i can do this

Any help would be great
Thankyou in advance

Hello :slight_smile:

You can modify the names of the roles by editing the site text. I assume you mean trust levels?

You can change certain permissions in site settings eg what groups can edit others post. However, its not 100% customisable for example, you can’t give permission to tl3 to close a topic without them being tl4.

Also, this is a community support forum not just for team to answer all the questions :wink:


To find the settings for certain permissions, you can take a look at Trust Level Permissions Reference


I want these roles with certain permission in my sites


Top Employee

Is it possible to create new role and remove existing role

You can probably create a group that the user has to be manually added, and give that group specific perms.
