It appears it could help indeed. Many user don’t know to add “SOLVED” to the title of their thread.

I’ve seen this plugin in other Discourse-based forums and it seems to work great.

@anon94969202 I’ve only the status of a moderator in this forum. In the settings I can see that the discourse-solved plugin is installed and activated. However, I’m not able to access the settings for this plugin. I guess there’s some option to make the solve button visible.

I have enabled this for all categories. You can now see a checkbox on the main list as well, which shows up empty for unresolved. The checkbox is kind of hidden behind the ellipse on each post.

I updated “requesting help” to say to use this.
