I want to set up a Discourse community on an organization’s existing website. I am looking to hear about challenges associated with setting up Discourse for the FOSS community. Is this the best topic to put that under? Is there a topic for ‘searching for help’?
I’m looking for advice on what next steps we should take to incorporate Discourse as a part of my organization’s website. I’ll probably reply to this post if I find out answers to some of my own questions, just in case someone else finds it useful.
I’m looking to answer the following questions:
- Are there any limitations on RIT’s servers (like
ritweboffshell) for hosting Discourse?
- Are there simpler options that might serve a similar purpose: providing a forum for our community members?
- Is it possible to incorporate RIT’s SSO as a part of the Discourse community website?
- What experience should my e-board look for in hiring webmasters to maintain the community? (This will help as my successors are going to be looking to hire more team members soon).
