Topics let you organize Quick Posts, Articles, Questions, Polls, and Events into categories that can be easily searched and filtered in your Mighty Network. Today a post can only belong to one Topic at a time.
Topics are disabled by default. To enable Topics, go to Network Settings > Content > Organization > Topics.
From there, you can create a new Topic right from your Network Settings. Or, you can use the + button at the top of your Mighty Network's activity feed.
Create and Customize Your Topics
Each Topic has its own branding, color, and description. You can reorder Topics how they appear on the Topics page at each level.
You can create up to 200 Topics at the Network level, as well as within each individual Group or Course.
Manage your Topics anytime by going to Network Settings > Content > Organization > Topics and selecting Manage. From here, you can drag and drop your Topics into a specific order by selecting the option to Reorder Topics.
You can also edit an individual Topic by selecting the three dot menu from the full list view of your Topics, or clicking on the Manage button that you see in the upper right corner when you're viewing all of the posts within a particular Topic.
From there, you can update that particular Topic's description, the image (or GIF) associated with it, or the color you've assigned to that Topic.
When you assign a specific color to a Topic, that color will show up on Polls and in the Topic tag on a post.
If you delete a Topic, any associated Posts will lose will the Topic's tag, but will not be deleted from your Mighty Network.
How to Create "Host Only" Topics
To limit a Topic so that only Hosts and Moderators can add posts to it, just change the default setting under "Who Can Contribute?" to "Only Hosts and Moderators Can Contribute."
This is an option if you want to control the content that appears within a particular Topic—especially if you're organizing resources, important documents and downloads, or a collection of curated posts that describe your business or your organization.
Follow or Hide Topics
By default, your members will see the highlights from each Topic. While the activity in your Mighty Network is ramping up, all members will see all posts in your main Mighty Network, regardless of Topic. This ensures that they get a sense of all Topics and their most popular activity before deciding to seeing everything or nothing from that Topic. This is the state when the Follow prompt is visible.
To opt into seeing everything in a Topic, click the Follow button you see on the Topics page and the button will change to Following. Clicking Following will bring you back to the Highlights view of Topic.
To completely Hide a Topic and all the activity in that Topic, click on the 3 dot menu of the Topic (accessible from the Topics page) and choose Hide Topic:
