My community users can't post anything

Hi, I’m fairly new to hosting a Discourse forum (not self hosted). I have been using Discourse as a user in other occatsons though. I have a basic plan, and I have added a bunch of users to the forum already, but they are having trouble to post anything.

Is there a special feature that I have to enable to let them post in different categories?

If they can see the topics but not reply to them it may be worth checking your category permissions and making sure that ‘everyone’ can see, reply, and create.

There’s a bit more info in this topic - Understanding groups and category permissions (security settings)


Thank you very much! I’ll try this
