Hi @KajMagnus. Thank you again for all your help designing & implementing the upsert API for categories. Our users are so happy with this feature :) I have another request in the same general area. We're building a feedback integration inside SoundFl...
Is there a LinkedIn integration?
Does Talkyard have a LinkedIn integration? Sometimes forum and blog admins want to let their users login only via LinkedIn.

Export from hosted version to self-hosted version?
I'm considering installing and hosting Talkyard on my own server so I can have a more user-friendly email when people interact with Talkyard. I'm using the hosted version now, and would want to export all of my current data so I could move it to a lo...
Translations - Testing
Hi there, is there a way to test a translation the easy way? I didn't found a hint where to put the language file to be able to choose it in talkyard. So does talkyard automatically scan the language folder an recognice a new file to show in admin se...
Bulk import from Disqus
I'm migrating over from Disqus to Talkyard, and I have a lot of old comments in Disqus. Fortunately Disqus allow you to export comments, so I'm wondering what the best way to import them into Talkyard would be. Just to be clear on what I'm asking, I ...

Custom CSS and theming
Hey, I managed to get quite far with customizing the Talkyard CSS, but I have several issues: I don't understand the meaning of the class names. They don't seem to follow a logic or system and neither are they very descriptive. I'd rather start from ...
Add a way to create events, with date and location
Hello, First thanks a lot for this great tool, it is amazing! I'm thinking to use it to help building a community that could (should) have meetings/events between each other, and these events should be proposed by the community. So my dream would be ...
Unnecessary "You have replies to posts of yours", for blog comments
If a blog visitor subscribes to comments for a blog post, then Talkyard lazy-creates a page for that blog post (so that there's something to subscribe to). However, Talkyard also sends a "You have replies" email, because of this new page, although th...
New version: Talkyard v0.6.49
So this is the first newsletter / announcement. I haven't been good at communicating what features and things appear in Talkyard — let's try to change that :- ) New features .... since the last few months: Discussion forum features: Custom user group...

@KajMagnus for those posts prior to my setting up a discussionId parameter to make their comments portable, is there a way in the Admin view I can see an ID and then retroactively apply it to those older posts? Am doing some transitioning and hate to...

No settings tab in admin
The guide in the Admin section says I should look in the "Settings Tab" but I can see no settings UI of any sort. Also there seem to me no moderation tools either. I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious. thanks
Dark mode - hexo
I followed the hexo instructions to try out and it worked ok once I removed some of the conditional expression. But my website has a black background and I want to be able to edit the css - ideally you'd have a dark mode ready to use. PS I had to cre...
Make Markdown preview optional for commentors?
I'm guessing most commenters (if I ever get any) will just type in text so the markdown preview may seem confusing. Perhaps the preview could be optional or on detection of markdown in text?

how to change reply-to on sign-up emails?
when someone else signs up into my forum, the reply-to on the sign-up email is firstname.lastname@example.org - is there a way to change that?
Bulk inviting people, via email address list
It'd be good if there was a way to upload a file with email addresses, and invite say 50 people at once — rather than clicking and typing 50 times to invite them one at a time. What about this comma-separated-file format: (namely each user on a separ...
Changing the colors
How to edit CSS to change the colors, to match your main website / your top header / your blog. Later, there'll be a user interface for this, so you won't need to edit any CSS code. Also, currently, the arrow background is white so if you change the ...

K8s, Swarm, Traefik and Talkyard
It'd be good if Talkyard was simple to configure together with Kubernetes and Docker Swarm. And Traefik or Caddyserver (proxy servers with automatic HTTPS). Maybe these could be the first steps: (or "all" that's needed?) Provide a sample Docker-Compo...
Can Ghost authors receive notifications when a comment is created on a post?
I have integrated TalkYard in my Ghost blog. So far, it's working great. I recently allowed other authors to create posts by creating them accounts under "Staff". When a comment comes on a post of theirs, I still receive an email notification. Is it ...
If a new member deletes hens first post, hen cannot get approved
Talkyard can be configured to require manual approval of a new user's first N posts. However, if a new member deletes one of his/her first posts, then, the staff cannot approve it, so the member cannot get approved to continue posting. — Probably Tal...

Statistics of comments
Hello. I tested the Talkyard comment service and found one feature there. The service is bound to the domain and thus keeps statistics of comments. In other words, if we run it on a domain example.com and then, for some reason, change the domain name...
