Docs on best practices around SourceCred Discourse management.
Every Discourse feature or plugin that is used to create and manage this Discourse should be listed here.
Every comment in this thread should be a Wiki. Please only create or edit Wikis in this thread. This will keep things organized for future readers. Also, if/when this thread becomes an Artifact then all contributors will get Cred
For pinned threads the preview tries to show as much of the first comment as possible. In order to make the pinned threads easy for new users to scan, we should keep the first comment to one or two sentences. Then we can create a new comment below with the bulk of the information.
If you’re wondering what I’m talking about try going to the SourceCred Discourse on a private browser. The pinned threads are easy to read because the first comment is just a sentence or two. Also, if you go to the Categories page you’ll see that the pinned threads in each category also preview the first comment.
It’s important when pinning threads to keep the first comment short and sweet
For the regular links, each reference generally won’t flow a ton of cred, and I think this happens pretty rarely, so I wouldn’t worry about it overmuch.
For the supernode links, many people will have the ability to edit or suggest changes to a supernode, so it should be easy for the community to crowdsource a fix.
We should also look into the specific cases where links can get broken… If a post gets moved, does Discourse provide a redirect? If we can enumerate the redirects somehow then we could have a pure technical fix. We suspect that when a post gets deleted, links to other posts in the thread will be unaffected, (and obviously there’s no way to recover the link to the deleted post).
The colors were changed because the default is that the footer is the opposite of the main background for contracts. To change this you have to go into the CSS of the plugin and change .custom-footer background to $primary-low.
The default background is black. This Discourse changed the background in .d-header by adding background: $primary-low;. In .custom-header-links a font: bold; parameter was added. (the font:bold thing may or may not actually do anything)
