Marking posts as "accepted"


#1

On some discourse forums, i can see a “Mark post as accepted” plugin installed which makes it a lot easier for everyone to read bug/help threads

  • vue users can easily scan the help support topic as the accepted answer is displayed in the first post (click for example)
  • forum community is “rewarded” with points/badges for giving help to others (i’m not sure about that but i saw that its possible to assign badges based on amount of accepted answers)
  • vue core team can easily know what topics are “resolved” and which ones are not (it’s possible to filter resolved/unresolved topics) (i’m also not sure about that but, just like above, it’s in the plugin description)

The plugin is an official one from discourse core team and it’s available here: https://meta.discourse.org/t/discourse-solved-accepted-answer-plugin/30155
