Published vs Private Discussions

About Published and Private Discussions

  • When you create a discussion, you will have the option of either making it a private or published.
  • Only you and invited users are able to view private discussions. Everyone can view published discussions.
  • If you have a private discussion you wish to make visible to all users on the site, you will need to publish it.
  • Publishing your discussion will not allow users to make edits to your discussion without being granted the appropriate role. By default, other users will have the Suggester role.
