Suggestion for improving Girder discourse


#1

You will find here a lot of information on:

  • how to configure your instances
  • which category makes sense
  • how to setup mail mode and tweak associated templates
  • changing the “heart” image under post with a “thumb up”
  • etc …

Currently we have login with Google, I say we add GitHub. Slicer has added Facebook in addition to these two, I don’t have strong feelings about that one, but if we think it doesn’t hurt anything we can turn it on.

Here is our current entry text:

“”"
This is a place for Girder users and developers to ask questions and collaborate.

Once you register a user, you can use the “New topic” button to start a new conversation.
"""

I’d like to change it to this, but I don’t have admin:

“”"
Girder is a free and open source web-based data management platform developed by Kitware as part of the Resonant data and analytics ecosystem.

This is a forum for Girder users and developers to ask questions and collaborate.

Once you register a user with email or with existing Google, GitHub or Facebook credentials, you can use the “New topic” button to start a new conversation. You can change your email notification settings through your account profile.

@Michael_Grauer You are now an admin, that text LGTM.

I have added that text (minus Facebook OAuth because I didn’t want to
bother) to the pinned welcome message and enabled GitHub OAuth tied to the
Girder GitHub organization.
