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?
Published page has limited access to many Discourse features.
The only workaround would be using a trick like Page Publishing - #145 by denvergeeks but the published page won’t have a custom URL (and will load useless thing in the background).
Pay Publishing is a cool idea and feature that’s new to me and in particular the above is how I assumed it might work too.
This would opens up the ability to present content with more control while having the majority of your discourse logion_required, best of both world, you may still need to hook in new users or ut valuable information you want ot leave open to all on the web, including crawlers.
A simple option like:
Allow Published Pages Display on Login_required page
Would be a good start.
Maybe the /pub/ could also be a default landing page to display all pub pages in a simple list preview, as a matter of course.
I really didn’t know this feature was available until investigating login_required.
Hi @Richie - you can do this with permalinks (admin-customize-permalinks). Put the “my-magic-page-here” slug in the first field, use the External URL option in the drop down, then add the published page URL in the URL field. Note however, that the permalink won’t work as a URL in a custom menu section, still need the actual published doc URL.
