|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...
|Making Talkyard contributor friendly|
Talkyard is open source, and it'd be good if it was simpler to contribute, without running into confusion e.g. when building images, or reading the source code. This is a roadmap for making it simpler, to contribute. A simpler build system. Assuming ...
|Embedded forum categories|
Right now, one can embed Talkyard discussion pages, to use as embedded blog comments, like Disqus comments. (Here's a landing page for such embedded comments: /blog-comments/. ) It'd be nice if one could also embed whole forum categories, and have em...
|Using / installing talkyard as the comment system for a wordpress site|
Hello, just like discuss, how would we use talkyard as the comment system for our wordpress website? I get that we would need a separate talkyard server, but then how do we integrate the comments to show up / be part of the wordpress comment system?
|How do you want to build and upgrade, yourself?|
For now, to build your own Talkyard images, you can do as described in: docs/testing-images-in-vagrant.md, however, the build script is nowadays called s/build-and-release.sh (not just s/release.sh). The testing-images-in-vagrant.md doc doesn't, howe...
|Email/SMTP config forces to define an user and password, should be optional|
We are using google as our relay SMTP server. We have to use that server without user and pass. Talkyard uses fake mail if user or password is not defined: https://github.com/debiki/talkyard/blob/67c11a773f8975410663b41723ece21214076e1c/app/debiki/Ma...
|Email Replies (a la Discourse)|
Hey gang - currently running Discourse but would love to switch to Talkyard. Does the app currently support email replies directly to the forum? If not, is there any plan to implement this in the future? Thanks, Jerry
|upgrade docker-compose file draft|
Hi, It was possible to use the new features of docker-compose. Please find a sample docker-compose.yml attached: docker-compose.yml (8.08 kB) Regards, Mustafa
|Debiki as an Embedded Comment System?|
Would you like to embed Debiki's comment system on a website of yours? You could then create static HTML pages, and nevertheless get a dynamic comment section, without needing any database. It'd be similar to e.g. Disqus. It could work as follows: Ex...
|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...
Is it possible to use LDAP Authentication to sign in a user?
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?
|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...
|Fix bug: Old drafts pop up again. And add draft indicators|
Here @chrscheuer mentions that: I still sometimes encounter that I have posted something and then when I try to answer to another post/comment then I'll get the draft up for something that was already posted. To better understand when this happens, I...
|Implement OpenGraph Metadata per Topic|
Hey @KajMagnus! I think I mentioned this before, but I'd like to suggest that each topic has it's own metadata tags with OGraph info included. As it is right now, sharing a link from the Talkyard install shows no metadata: https://files.warmbo.com/s/...
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...
|Topic preview weird rendering of markdown link|
@KajMagnus - thanks for creating this great software and for being a nice guy, regarding your pricing and vision! Issue Using a markdown anchor within the topic's description works fine on the topic page, but is rendered weird when topic preview is s...
|Disable chat icon, especially on mobile|
As attached, takes up too mich real estate for a mobile device, blocks other elements
Hello, I have a user who is receiving this notification constantly, it directs to the main page and does not get marked as read. Any ideas?
|Change "Users Online" appearance.|
Is it possible to have the users online appear at all times in this 'condensed' form of just the user count? It's what most of my users have requested since the "Online in this forum" breaks to multiple lines and messes with our titlebar.
|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...
|Content Security Policy error within GatsbyJS|
Hello. I've tried to add the section below of my blog post template. but I met this error in chrome developer Tool. Then I can't figure out any appearance of Talkyard. How can I modify Content Security Policy to 'self' from 'none'? It seems all will ...
Do iframes not work? Trying to share a YouTube video in my forum.
|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'...
|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...
|RSS feed for the most recent comments|

|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 ...
|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...
|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...
|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!

|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?
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|
|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...
