Is it possible to send a user to a specific URL (like Welcome forum.org - BlueHost.com) that will open up an editor to create a new topic with the topic and category filled in?
I’m working on integrating github pages and discourse for onlline courses, but I think it also applies to general github pages integration. This would avoid having to create a topic for every page and it will also avoid lots of 1 comment topics for pages that turned out to not be comment worthy.
Does this already exist? Am I missing the whole point? Does it simply require some sleeve rolling?
Yes, definately related - although this would be to create a new topic rather than reply to a post in an existing topic.
If the user have to log in and the intent of creating a new topic isn’t carry over they will be at a complete loss. Is it something that lies in that 5% of things that doesn’t fit with how everything else is done or would it be possible to do?
(Nice to see the “Revive this topic” pop-up come up as I started this reply. Yes, indeed I would like to revive this topic.)
Has anyone had a chance to scratch this itch yet? I’m in a similar situation where I’d like to be able to have a link that I could post on a page outside of the Discourse site to encourage the creation of a new topic.
I would love to have something like this. We’re starting out with a “Hi I am . . .” category and it would be great to have the about have a link to “Introduce Yourself” that pops up the new topic editor.
