Discourse Forum Site
Discourse is the next-next-generation community forum platform.
Page loads are very fast and new content is loaded as the user scrolls down the page.
Discourse allows you to create categories, tag posts, manage notifications, create user profiles, and includes features to let communities govern themselves by voting out trolls and spammers.
Discourse is built for mobile from the ground up and support high-res devices.
Discourse is the 100% open source discussion platform built for the next decade of the Internet.
Use it as a mailing list, discussion forum, long-form chat room, and more!
Discourse is a from-scratch reboot, an attempt to reimagine what a modern Internet discussion platform should be today, in a world of ubiquitous smartphones, tablets, Facebook, and Twitter.

Your credentials will be valid for 1 day after which the Demo Environment will reset itself.
Conversations, not pages
Why break conversations into awkward and arbitrary pages, where you have to constantly find the Next Page button?
We’ve replaced all that with the power of just-in-time loading.
Want to read more?
Keep scrolling down.
When someone quotes your post, we’ll notify you.
When someone mentions your @name, we’ll notify you.
When someone replies to your post… well, you get the idea.
And if you’re not around, we’ll email you, too.
Simple, but with context
Discourse is a simple, flat forum, where replies flow down the page in a line.
Expand context at the bottom and top of each post, and also in quotes, to reveal the full conversation without losing your place.
Born mobile, born to touch
Discourse was designed for high resolution touch devices, with a built-in mobile layout.
Read or post from your laptop, tablet, and phone in your browser of choice, or our Discourse iOS app and Discourse Android app.
