Since our last set of release notes back in June we’ve pulled in numerous fixes from upstream, all while a new feature has been brewing:
Today I’m pleased to announce support for multiple email addresses in Mozilla Discourse:
With this feature:
- Staff can (once again) use their LDAP aliases to start and reply to topics and PMs in Discourse via email
- Staff and Volunteers can use multiple email addresses to start and reply to topics and PMs in Discourse via email
If my LDAP alias (
email@example.com) was copied into an email sent to the Reps Leadership group inbox (managed by Discourse) my account (@leo) would be invited to the PM. Before this feature landed, a duplicate account would have been created.
For the full details on how to use this functionality, and what it enables, head to the #meta:faq topic:
It’s been a little over 18 months since I first requested this feature upstream, and have worked with upstream over that time to implement the functionality in phases, before working on integrating it with our #iam system.
Other features and fixes
Discourse now uses NLX’s signup/login flow which uses language relevant to users signing up as well as those logging in
We fixed a short-lived bug that meant that users couldn’t update their Mark posts as read when I’m emailed about them preference
