User should be able to login without verification


(Jabra) #1

So recently I installed Discourse forum on digital ocean. I don’t have much knowledge about SMTP so am not being able to set it up.

Is there any setting available using which users can directly login without need of verifying their email addresses?

Email is very important to Discourse, many things won’t work unless you get it set up. There’s a troubleshooting guide here:

Can I show only Gmail & Facebook signup option to users?

Yes - you can disable other login methods via /admin/site_settings/category/login - regardless, however, your site will be broken if email isn’t configured.
