Bug report - I just put up my first post but it wouldn’t let me submit it before I’d removed all the links. There was a message saying as a new user I was limited to 2 links but 2 or 1 links were rejected with the same error message.

How can I create new topics? A link on the invitation would guide newbies on discourse about how to apply the advice.


There’s a button on main page and main directory pages (show by red arrow in picture), which enables you to create new Topic.

Thanks. In fact I have already created several post now. But this screenshot and advice could be uselful for future newbies on discuss, as I was then ;-).


Why can’t I see this button? Is the forum closed for new members?

We received a lot of spam, so we changed the rules a little bit, you need to engage with existing conversations before being able to post, so Discourse knows you’re not a robot and allows you to create new topics.


Thank you. I am looking forward to learning from and contributing to the Forum!

Hi from me, this wasn’t obvious to me, neither. Could you include it in the header of this page, somewhere? I came from datahub .io and the experience was rather confusing…

Can I create new post?
