Marking issues resolved


#1

As NeuroStars has become a de facto help page for a number of software packages, it would be useful to be able to mark threads as resolved. This would enable project members can quickly search for outstanding issues for their project.


#2

There’s an off-the-shelf plugin for that: https://github.com/discourse/discourse-solved
We’re using in OpenMOLE’s discourse and have been quite happy about it for now :slight_smile:
Would be great to deploy here indeed!


#3

@satra who is the current admin to help with this?


#4

@fitz would be the right person.


#5

discourse-solved is enabled, but i believe the original poster has to do it. or a person has to reach a certain level.


#6

Right, the OP has to do it or someone with a trust level of “4”.
Would it be a good idea to lower that trust level?


#7

As the OP of this post, I’d like to mark it solved, but I can’t. So I guess it isn’t? When I can, I will. Because it will be. :slight_smile:


#8

Oops. Ok…just noticed there’s a setting that says “allow solved on all topics” that was not ticked.
I guess the default is that only certain categories allow for “Solved” flagging.
Do you see the option now?


#9

Found it. It’s now solved.


#10

sorry, but it looks like i can “unresolved” the issue :wink:

not sure how to undo… and probably I shouldn’t be able to do it on your post


#11

Are you an admin or moderator of the discourse @djarecka? If so, then yes you can also accept answers on behalf of the OP


#12

not that I’m aware of… I should be just a member


#13

@jopasserat - you might also see this option when you clink on the dots (to see more options) below the post. you can check if you are allowed to change it. I tested that I can also resolve other questions (perfect plan for Saturday - resolving all neurostar issues :wink:


#14

Not yet :slight_smile:

I didn’t see the dots as a first level user and now that I’m at the “basic user” trust level I see them but the “dots” only give me the option to flag.

Your trust level is higher: “member” so I guess that’s when you start having the possibility to accept answers on topics other than yours.

I guess this can be set by admins who might want to have a “moderator” crew to grant this permission to.


#15

that’s my point, i believe a random member should not be able to to mark other people question as solved.
