What do Permalinks under Customize do?


(Ali) #1

I created some Permalinks under Customize but don’t know what they do.
Also what is a category-ID?

They are mostly used for people who migrate from other forum software. The idea of a permalink is you can create a link on discourse that will resolve to a particular topic or category.

Your link could be /hello-world instead of /t/12345/hello-world.


Custom permalinks

I c so it is basically replaces the Permalink-plugin: GitHub - gnunicorn/discourse-plugin-permalink: Access Topics via Permalinks ?

I’ve never used that particular plugin so I am not sure, but it sounds similar.
