Seems not to be available in 2.6 beta, but it is in 2.5 release.

Always the same mangled Cicero …

Hi Stuart!

It’s the standard placeholder for typography for about 500 years! You know that. :slight_smile:

There’s a new feature where Discourse can publish static web pages, but it does not seem to be in the release. I am maning enquiries.


It is not clear to me what this function does, or the advantages it brings.


It enables us to publish static web pages. At the moment I have to have as a distinct entity and distinct web server to support the forum landing page etc.

But this may not actually be available in the 2.6.0 beta release I am running.

Would this help us with SEO?


I cannot answer that. I don’t understand what is happening with Google and our site. It’s open for indexing. I think the lack of links to us is the main issue - that is, after all the prime and orignal Googel algorithm, and it still holds today.

What it would help a lot with is not having to run a separate web server, and not having to have two subdomains - www and discourse. I am sure that must confuse people. Maybe.

Well I don’t think it’s as good as I thought. You can publish the first post of a topic as a static web page, but so far I have found no way to style the page with CSS etc. Seems too simplistic for what I want. Here’s an example:

I asked on the Discourse Meta forum - you can style it with CSS. I will play with it.

Not being able to use CSS in a static page is a little too HIP.
