Private global setting with some exceptions

(Globulle) #1

I am using Discourse for a long time now, and I am still amazed by its completion, thank you!

I’ve just made a fresh install for an association recently and I have a problem:

  • the instance needs to remain globally private (users need to log in to read topics)
  • we would like one or two specific categories to be public, and shared worldwide

In brief we would like a private default behaviour, with some exceptions. Ideally these exceptions should be clearly noticeable (e.g. with a planet icon). Is it currently possible?

Setting the instance public and restraining access to the majority of categories would do basically the same thing, but this is less secure, and there will be padlocks icons everywhere, which is not very convenient.
