“About the Forum Help Category” References Subcategories

A pinned topic, “About the Forum Help Category,” mentions that you can post in #forum-feedback:forum-help’s subcategories.

Since Discourse does not allow a subcategory to have subcategories of its own, this should be changed to something that reflects that, such as:

  • All forum members can create topics in this category and reply to topics.
  • Non-forum members cannot see this category.

The “about” topics for #forum-feedback:forum-features and #forum-feedback:forum-bugs are not affected by this issue, instead, their information is written like my suggested correction above.

It looks like you misinterpreted it. They mean the subcategories of Forum Feedback. However, this needs to be clarified, yes. Oh, and a subcategory can’t have subcategories, that’s a Discourse limitation :wink:

At first I thought I had misread the category guidelines, but for the other two subcategories, #forum-feedback:forum-bugs and #forum-feedback:forum-features, the text is identical to my suggested correction. The “about” topic for #forum-feedback:forum-help should therefore be updated for consistency.

I have updated the topic to reflect that, thanks!

Fixed it, but in the future please follow this process: (edited Forum Features about post)

This saves on clutter requests. This does not need to be seen by everyone using this category.
