Database connection error and a question
Hello, I want to ask if I need to create the Postgres database "talkyard" and user "talkyard" myself or is automatically created on the host machine ? And the POSTGRES_PASSWORD from ".env" should be the password for global access to Postgres database...
Single-Sign-On and API
Here is how Talkyard's API and Single-Sign-On via API can look and work. Would you like to post feedback? Endpoints and Single-Sign-On Call the API like so, from your backend application servers: POST /-/v0/login-or-signup + json payload, see below ...
Slow server @talkyard
It's getting increasingly frustrating that we're being met with "Server is slow right now" messages on a regular basis. Is there any fix for this coming up or will this continue to happen as often as it does now? Customers are complaining about it, i...
RSS feed for the most recent comments
@someburneraccount wrote: "... planning to put the embeddable rss feed of the most recent comments in our forum to our sidebar, so that users see that and hopefully join the forum ..." — ok so there'll be an RSS (Atom) feed with the most recent comme...
Subcategories / Parent Topics
It would be nice to be able to structure categories so that a Talkyard site can be more specifically organized. For my case I would like to be able to make an 'Operating Systems' Category and then contain Subcategories like 'Windows', 'OS X', 'Linux'...
Support file uploads to Amazon S3 buckets
It would be really useful to have the ability to upload files directly into AWS S3 buckets. One can currently mount an S3 bucket to a Talkyard instance and direct the uploads there but I am not sure how reliable that would be. Supporting this in the ...
Drafts feature randomly resets the input field
I'm guessing it came about around the same time the draft feature was introduced. OS: macOS 10.12.6 Browser: Google Chrome 68.0 I'm seeing different errors: Old drafts from different posts showing up when creating a new thread or a new post instead o...

Re-send invitations to the same user
Hi @KajMagnus, I had this case that a user discarded his invitation by mistake and asked me to send a new one. I tried to send a new invitation but Talkyard refuses to send another e-mail. I see the progress wheel flashing for a second and then nothi...
Ability to hold hosted forum on a stable branch to force it to not update with new, untested features?
Given the big number of errors we've had in the Talkyard forum these last days, I'm wondering if it would be possible on a hosted talkyard forum to force it to stay on a stable branch/version and not receive any updates until they have been tested to...
We have "Num first posts to review" set to 1, Num first posts to approve to 0 and Num first posts to allow to 0, but we continue to get notified for each and every post by all our members (even if their trust levels have been manually set to Full mem...
My users and I used a chat the other day and now I have 45+ notifications waiting for me. I figured viewing the most recent one from the chat would clear them all but it did not. Am I cursed to a life of 99+ notifications eventually?
User logins are not persisted forever
Many of our customers and myself included are experiencing that we have to log in again very often. I'm guessing this could be related to server update rollouts, in which the sessions are purged maybe? Seems like an alternative solution is needed in ...
Strange Error with Firefox Extension
This may be very specific, but I use this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ultrawidey/ for YouTube. When this extension is enabled, I get errors in the console and Talkyard won't load anything after the custom header HTML. re...
Hamburger top nav dropdown, for mobiles
@someburneraccount wrote: "[we'd like to have a] three stripes menu icon for the mobile page and then just click on it to have the all the menu text appear" — agree with this, I want this too. And, often people don't bother to click the hamburger / t...
Add a Change Password button
Currently one can only change one's password, by clicking "Did you forget your password?" in the login dialog, when logged out. There should also be a "Change password" button on one's user profile page, the Account section probably. (Thanks Cody for...
Do iframes not work? Trying to share a YouTube video in my forum.
Keep attached file name intact while downloading
When a user downloads an attachment, the file name seen in the post is replaced with some generated (hashed?) name which forces user to rename the file. It would be desirable to keep the original file name intact during download. Thank you!
How to show header like your site like Talkyard Community forum
Hi Kaj, Is there already a way to show header and logo in Talkyard-Prod. I need to do customization of Talkyard. Can you suggest something for it. Regards Arjun Singh

Sharing to Social Media
Currently when sharing any forum post to a social media site like Facebook, no opengraph info is shown or pulled. Is this by design? Can we force meta info?
Paste to Upload
Currently a user must save/upload an image into Talkyard for it to be displayed. In things like DokuWiki and Bookstack there is the option to paste the contents of the clipboard and upload it immediately. Can this be implemented or a similar solution...
This admin setting: [x] Login required Require authentication to read content also requires users to be authenticated before they can access & read the terms-of-use, so, with login-required enabled, then, when signing up, no one can read the terms-of...
Make MaxBytesPerDayMember and MaxBytesPerWeekMember configurable
Hi, I see that the values for MaxBytesPerDayMember, MaxBytesPerWeekMember, MaxBytesPerDayStaff and MaxBytesPerWeekStaff are currently hard coded. It would be desirable to expose these variables and make them configurable, either in app conf or in the...
Syntax highlighting like on Github
Add a rich text editor
Maybe use ProseMirror to build one? It supports both rich text and Markdown, and collaborative editing. Here Atlassian has published an open source editor built on ProseMirror: http://atlaskit.atlassian.com/packages/editor/editor-core (found out abou...
Open External Links in a New Tab
Currently all links open in the current tab/window. I think links that don't contain the domain Talkyard resides on/in should open in a new tab with the _blank attribute in the Markdown/HTML links that are made.
Shall a trust level group mention include higher trust levels or not?
If mentioning a built-in trust level group, like @basic_members — does that include higher trust levels or not? To me,@basic_members, sounds as if higher trust levels are not included. However, if someone types @full_members, then that sounds as if h...
Group mentions broken
If mentioning a built-in group, like @core_members, then there's this error: "Got a group when trying to load member $groupId [EdE2SBA4J7]" because currently only individual people (but not groups) can be mentioned. Instead, either there should be a ...
Avoid unnecessary closed + reopened messages
Don't show messages like: X closed this topic 15 hours ago. X reopened this topic 15 hours ago. Because that's not interesting; nothing really happened. Instead, when someone clicks Close and then Reopen soon again, show no messages about that. The s...
configure https on prod-one
Hello, I would like to configure https access for my webserver using Talkyard. I suppose I have to obtain a let's encrypt certificate and then install it somewhere in the project, enabling some configuration files. Anybody can help me with a small tu...
How to setup multiple instances on one server?
I’ll like to setup forums for three different communities but want to do so using just one server. Did not find this in the installation instructions. Will like to know where to start. I’ll do a pull request to the installation instructions when I ge...
Permanently delete items
I noticed that in my own instance content deleted is hidden but not actually deleted off the server. This would raise issues if a user where to post illegal material as the website owner would still be liable if an investigator found it in the databa...
Clicking attachment would result nginx 500 Internal Server Error
Hi @KajMagnus, after the last deployment (on premise, v0.6.9-WIP-3-75eef8fa4), we are no longer able to open/save attachments. Following the attachment link would throw an internal server error. Here's what I see in the console (domain name edited) E...
Single-Sign-On for embedded comments, v1
This is how we're planning to make single-sign-on (SSO) for embedded comments work. (For SSO for the discussion forum itself (which isn't embedded), maybe it'll be some simple flavor of OpenAuth instead.) To single-sign-on, the server that generates ...
