We may want to also look at setting up “reply by email”.

A proposal for JupyterHub communications

oooh the chat plugin is pretty cool!


Quick updates, we actually already have access to several of those plugins :slight_smile:

I just enabled the “solved” plugin on the z2jh channel for example:

you should now be able to mark replies as “solutions”. Do we want to enable this for the whole site?

I also looked into the chat integration thing and I think it should work with Gitter as well, but I couldn’t figure out how to set it up


Yes, I believe so. Thanks for looking into this.
I’m open to adding the Gitter plugin, but it is still unclear what it does to me.


I have seen these, but they were not there before. Was this due to a plugin being installed?


They appeared before we discussed plugins, so maybe it is because a new version of discourse was installed (we are on a hosted plan here).


yeah I think it was a general discourse update, I didn’t enable anything at least :slight_smile:


@choldgraf can you provide me with a print-screen or similar of the current plugins activated? They should be listed in the admin panel or settings panel I think.


@consideRatio how about we make you an admin instead? :slight_smile:

I’m testing the github linkback plugin by referencing a github issue link here:


What happens if i mention this pr?



Wow, @choldgraf is going to be so active, and subscribed to soo many issues.
If needed I have a bot account ( that we can use if any token are needed. I can share the username/password to the account and/or generate tokens :slight_smile:


oh man we should definitely use a bot haha


I shared with you the lastpass to connect to GitHub, you should be able to generate new token for discourse and thus not post as yourself.

@carreau @choldgraf woops sorry, lesson learned!

Hey also found this page:

I’m about to setup up a Discourse forum for Hack 4 Sweden, an repeating event, so I’m learning more about Discourse official hosting now.


Testing the linkback with a new meeseecks token:


I’m very confused about it, but I think it only works within PRs for some reason.


well then let’s test this!
