Discover: A New Way to Engage with Discourse Communities

We are excited to announce the official launch of Discourse Discover!  Our brand-new initiative answers the question: Who else is using Discourse? Discover and connect with Discourse communities from technology and gaming to niche hobbies and interests. 

Explore new communities

Online communities have become an integral part of our digital lives, providing spaces for like-minded individuals to connect, share ideas, and build relationships. With Discourse Discover, people now have a powerful tool at their fingertips to easily explore and engage with hundreds of online communities, with the directory expected to grow to thousands in the future.

“Discourse’s mission is to democratize online communities and teamwork,” shared Sarah Hawk, co-CEO of Discourse. “Discourse Discover is a step in that direction because it allows users to find, join, and actively participate in discussions and communities that interest them, while existing and future community leaders have the opportunity to see what is possible with our powerful software.”

The inspiration behind Discourse Discover 

The vision for Discourse Discover was born from our desire to showcase the incredible variety of communities using our platform. Our goal was to make Discourse communities more discoverable than ever. We wanted to create a space where users can effortlessly discover new communities, be inspired by the diversity, and realize that while a lot of communities use similar theme styles, they don’t have to.

“Discourse Discover is a significant initiative which resolves a long standing need for the entire Discourse ecosystem” said Sam Saffron, co-founder of Discourse. “Discovering Discourse communities was left to chance in the past, by creating a safe and diverse directory we are now hosting a place on the Internet for everyone to discover their next favorite forum.”

How Discourse Discover Works 

Discourse Discover highlights both hosted and self-hosted communities using the Discourse platform, demonstrating the flexibility and extensibility of our online community software. The directory is completely optional so every community administrator has the power to include their community

This centralized directory makes it easier for people to find, join, and actively participate in discussions and communities that interest them. 

Discourse Discover is available now at For our DiscourseHub app users, we’ve integrated Discover on iOS and Android. With just a few clicks, you can unlock a world of engaging conversations and new connections.
