Headsup: New online tutorial facility


(Andrew Waugh) #1

The latest Discourse updates include an online tutorial facility.

To try it out send a PM to user @discobot. It doesn’t matter what subject or text you use in the PM, discobot will respond via PM and tell you about what he/she can do.

Some of the content may seem a bit… juvenile… but discobot will walk you through all of the basic functions of using Discourse.

As a matter of fact, just mentioning discobot as I did above will call him/her to action.

eg:
