The `allow_duplicate_topic_titles` option is ignored for «on hold» topics

(Discourse.PRO) #1


The topics in my example was initially «on hold» and approved by a moderator:

(Joshua Rosenfeld) #2

I’m confused…that setting simply allows topics to have an identical title to another topic, it has nothing to do with whether a topic is help for review. I fail to see how topics held for approval is connected to duplicate titles.

(Jeff Atwood) #3

I think his report is a bit different, he’s saying even if dupe topic titles are disallowed, they can inappropriately come through on approval.

We had a similar question from a customer, and I believe the moderation queue bypass most validations, since you are guaranteed that a moderator said that the topic was okay.
