Post re API Announcements category


#1

for some reason the post in the new API Announcements category doesn’t show up for me on the main list

The post I’m referring to is;

Maybe because it’s pinned ? not sure - but when I look at the main page of https://community.letsencrypt.org/ then I see a list of “all categories” posts … but this specific post is missing from the list, hence commenting, as some other folk may miss that post. As a note, it did show up under the “New” list if I selected that, but does not show in the “Latest” list.

@jsha Any idea what might cause this?

Interesting, thanks for reporting! I had assumed that the post would show up in the main list. A theory as to why: When you create a category in Discourse, Discourse automatically creates a post called “About the … category.” This post is special: Until you edit it to have a description, the category will not show up in the category list. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was special in other ways, like not showing up in the main list of topics. I’ll post a separate announcement thread to augment this one.

Indeed, this is the case. Any other topic should show up normally.
