I am a consultant who makes my living helping people use Discourse. If you would like paid support from me, please contact me at

More about me

I do standard installs and custom installations. If you are moving from another forum, I am experienced in importing data from other packages, including developing new and custom import scripts (e.g., convert sub-categories to tags).

If you need help getting started with Discourse and want more immediate and personalized assistance than is available here on meta, you can use me instead. See for more information. You can also email, or log in to and message @pfaffman.

In a former life I was an academic who once studied how to help teachers use computers to make school suck less. I once used Discourse to teach my online classes.
