How the forum works?

(Michael Träumner) #1

Is there anywhere a description how this forum is working? I’m thinking about a central point where to find

  • an index of badges
  • which forum-software is used
  • how to post for example bold text or code
; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
; Its value may be 0 to disable the limit. It is ignored if POST data reading
; is disabled through enable_post_data_reading.
; default: post_max_size = 8M
post_max_size = 100M
  • what does the trust levels mean
  • an overview about all categories with description.

I know the most points are already described, but I mean at one central point.

PS: A description about trust-levels I found here:

Well, the basic formatting things (bold, italic, links) are done in the editor toolbar, but preformatted text is a notable exception–and getting it to preformat without doing the (apparently-random) syntax highlighting is more obscure yet. There really should be a link from the editor window to a guide to the formatting syntax, especially since it doesn’t use bbcode, like just about every other forum in existence.

Honestly not a big fan of Discourse, but it does seem to be teh new hawtness in forums.

You can find all the badges here

Is it necessary?

Discobot helps every new user to use Discourse

You’re right :slight_smile: would you mind creating a new post collecting all needed info?

If you want to know how to format a post and you can’t find it at the description you can search by Google with the name of the forum-software

Can I ask him to send the PM again?

I can try to collect some points, but some things I didn’t know also, for example how to show other people how to post code.
