Page publishing is really cool–the topics look great as standalone pages. But I haven’t been able to use it like I had hoped:
I thought one cool use would be to set up page publishing as a landing page for the forum–so before users login they get to see a topic I have published and styled to be the page they see. Is that possible?
Is there a preferred way to link back to the original post from the published page?
I find myself willing to do this quite often, to encourage replies from readers, while keeping control over the style of the read-only, published page. I tried several ways, including linking to the topic prominently or simply with a ‘discuss’ link.
Maybe an option to add a discuss button that would remain visible at all times (but still be modifiable with CSS) could work. Did someone implement such a CSS trick already?
You can “simulate” a button by codding CSS for a specific tag, like I did for the header of this category:
Ciudadanos con la convicción de que la República Argentina puede, debe, y va a ser un lugar mejor, si trabajamos todos Unidos en pos de la Libertad.
<mark> [**Afiliación**](https://foro.enunionylibertad.com/t/formulario-de-pre-afiliacion/92) </mark>
(the important part are the <mark> tags)
CSS for said <mark> tags:
/* Code to CHANGE "mark" tag render to something that looks like a "menu bar" */
background-color: #E1E1E1 !important;
border-radius: 20px !important;
Tags in the composer can be used to selectively apply formatting to a specific Topic Post.
For example, on my site I achieve this by pasting the following CSS into my theme’s CSS in the Common tab:
I’m also using this trick on my site extensively, to style content and embeds on-the-fly inside the composer…
I have a section of my site where I document my developments (mainly so my future self can recall and find what I have already done, so I don’t continue to reinvent my own wheels!) But anyone is welcome to visit and/or subscribe to that category if you’d like…
Hello, I currently have a discourse site that requires login to see and do anything. I want to use the publish topic feature to create a homepage for my users but since I’m also using secure media, I’m getting the below error. Is there anyway around this? I tried the procourse-static-pages (doesn’t work with the latest version of discourse, I’m unable to save a new page. The security group drop down box is not being populated so that might be the issue) and discpage (doesn’t seem to work with a custom theme I’m using) plugins. So I’m really hoping I can get this feature to work. Does anyone have any advice?
Unless I missed something on this feature, the published page only shows the initial post, not the answers to it. If that’s the intended behavior, is there a way (plugin?) to make the standalone page also show all the replies to the initial post?
