Initialising a discourse forum on a Ghost Blog


#1

Hi,
I’m still trying to get my head around how the authorisation (access) to discourse works in a case where discourse is being used a comment provider for a Ghost blog.

I have recently set up a ghost blog (see example https://eqmind.com.au/ ) with a supporting discourse instance ( same URL with the leading word discourse. ).

The have created both a category (Data Wrangling) and a group (datadevops) with permissions create, write, see. The everyone group has the permission see and reply. I have associated the group with the data wrangling category. I have read the article on open and closed groups here: Invite only/closed groups,

When I’m logged into my discourse instance, and view the blog post, I can see the “Start Discussion” link. When I’m not logged into the discourse instance, I do not see any discourse-related links. Would that be due to no entries for that particular topic? Do I need to create the first topic entry in order for a discourse discussion link to be visible in the ghost blog post?

The use-case is typical. I would like to use the blog as a means for folks to access discourse, place a registration request, I approve it, then they can post against a topic which is then visible on the blog.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I would love to do this in the future. I’ll follow what the conclusion here.

I see on your blog that you managed to show start discussion link permanently. How did you do that?
