Default Discourse Settings


Ok, so from our discussions in the meeting about default settings I’ve modified a few things, but I have a few that should probably be decided on before continuing:

  • Send an email for every new post by default
  • default email mailing list mode frequency (Every new post / Every new post but mine)
  • Email user even if they’re active (online)
    (I think we can add a wiki post on how to set these on your profile personally so that people don’t get overwhelmed)

I’ve set the following things:

  • unsubscribe via email footer
  • delete hidden posts (false)
  • Prioritise real name in interface
  • Disabled group directories (it showed members to anonymous visitors)
  • Hide user profiles from anonymous visitors
  • Disable user directory from public
