Do you provide trials for the real name plugin? I’m staging a demo of Discourse for my company to see if it’s worth replacing our old forums solution.

Thanks!

There is no trial mode but you can see the plugin in action just on this site.

Plugin does not work with the latest version of Discourse


(Dmitry Fedyuk) #12

The plugin is discontinued because its functionality has been added to the Discourse core.
Look for the «full name required» and «enable names» options in the Discourse’s backend on the «Users» tab.
