Discourse is an opensource discussion platform built for the next decade of the Internet. A modern forum, everything’s been redesigned to be easy.
Self-hosted Discourse software is free, hosting service is paid.
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 – even quotes – to reveal the full conversation without losing your place.
