What is a Staff Post?

I have no idea what this option is for and I don’t have my dev environment available right now to test it.

What is a Staff post?


Is is possible to log in as system?

Maybe it turns the background yellow?

Yeah, the copy isn’t great. But this post is a staff message :wink:

It is for when you explicitly wish to speak “in the moderator voice”.

Example: “calm down guys, this discussion is getting heated” versus “here is my opinion on the matter…”

Thank you. That is what I was missing, the purpose behind it :smile:

I’m just glad to see more than one option under that wrench besides wikification… now it makes sense. :slight_smile:

We also have Rebuild HTML now :smiley:

Yay! Another raison d’etre for the wrench! :slight_smile:

Question though - this is called rebake post - what does that do exactly? And would not rebuild html maybe be a better, more “human readable” name for it if rebuilding html is what it does?


(Jeff Atwood) #9

That’s what it says now.

Always one step ahead.
