Hi all! Can one install a theme component, say DiscoTOC, if they are hosted by Discourse (paid plan) or are theme components only for sites that host themselves? Thanks!
yes, you can install it
Only #official plugins can be installed by those hosted by Discourse, yes?
Our site is hosted by Discourse with the Standard options.
Here are some of the themes and plugins we have installed/activated.
Plugins and theme / theme components are a different thing. Only your server admin can install plugins, and this might not be possible on some hosted plans.
Themes and theme components can always be installed by a forum administrator, there are no restrictions on that.
But installing some themes from GitHub will not make you popular with the natives if it doesn’t work. I had one we tried but I let the natives know right after installing and within an hour we realized it was not a good move for the site and it was removed.
I am not sure if I am following you. Natives?
Yes, the natives are know for throwing spears and rocks.
In other words, when the users of the site are not pleased I politely refer to them as the natives.
Don’t worry, you were not lost, I should not have used that word as it was a far stretch.
