Topic

Topic is a type of content on Open Social which allows users to share information or organise discussions. A topic can be a piece of news, blog, document or a discussion. Each topic is tagged with a topic type to make it clear what this topic is about.

    There are a few things you can do regarding topic:

    • Topics can be placed in a group or outside a group. When creating it outside a group the topic is visible on the homepage stream and on the profile of the author or the topic overview in a group.
    • You can create a topic by using the ‘+’ button in the header menu or  the button on the topic overview page of your profile. When creating you can either choose to add it to a group or not. You can also create a topic in a group directly from the group itself.

      Creating a topic inside a closed group will only be available to members of that group.

     

    • An author can edit his own topic, but site managers and content managers can edit any topic created by others, unless they are unpublished.
    • Same goes for deleting a topic. This can be done at the bottom of the topic edit page, or Mgmt roles can delete it from the content overview.
    • Set Topic types
    • Rename the content type Topic
