I’m looking for an option to disable this feature as it may cause some complexity in managing threads when you have different moderators teams for different categories and suddenly they find themselves with a big or controversial thread in their category without prior notice.
Alright, thanks to a good friend who suffer from insomnia we figure out where to find the right hook
Here is it, it also adjust the form visuals and allow to select a minimum trust level from which the access to editing category will be available anyway (default trust level 0 to be in line with default discourse settings)
I’ll go create a new topic in the plugin section now.
Thanks a LOT @Canapin for pointing us in the right direction at the start
Just to note, a TL3 and TL4 can recategorise any topic as long as trusted users can edit others is enabled. A TL0/1/2 should only be able to do it on their own topic, and only within their editing period . If you lock the first post using the post wrench then that should also stop the category (and title and tags) from being edited.
I’m not 100% sure I’m following your use case, but I’m glad you found a solution.
set by post edit time limit for TL0 and TL1 and tl2 post edit time limit for TL2 and TL3 ↩︎
However, my intent was to prevent the moderators to have to deal with several occurrence of category hopping which may lead to complication in the moderation when a topic is first in a category, then move into another etc etc
You need a plugin if you want a more secure way to do it.
