Making a topic public or private

Topics can either be private, meaning that only those invited can view the topic and participate, or public, meaning that anyone can view and participate.

To change the privacy settings of a topic:

  • In the relevant topic, click on “Actions” within the “Options” menu. (Right sidebar on desktop, or in the options menu tab on mobile). 
  • Under “Make your topic private”, toggle the privacy on or off. When “On” it is private, when “Off” it is public.


  • When in the “My Topics” dashboard, click on “Settings” for the relevant topic.

Only admins of a topic can change these settings.
