What happened to the Invite system?!?

Originally, I could enter an email address into an invite and the system would fire off an invitation message. Now, I only get a link; no automated invite message.

Is this a setting that changed? A functionality change? Either way, it’s a really time suck/pain in the ass.



Why was this functionality taken away? This really makes me want to switch platforms.

Hi Christopher! Thanks for the feedback. Just select the “Invite just one email address”, type in the email address and then select Save and Send Email.

If you don’t see these options, then maybe you’re on a different version of Discourse? Can you share a screenshot so we can be sure we’re looking at the same thing?

Here’s what it looks like for me, as staff who can see “Show Advanced Options”.


@tobiaseigen Perfect, you are a champ!


Glad to be of service! Keep in mind we are constantly improving this platform. Please be patient and try to give us the benefit of the doubt!

The invite system changes are still fairly new so let us know if you run into any bugs, are missing anything, or have suggestions.
