Discussion boards

What are discussion boards?

Each of our courses has a discussion board. This is a dedicated community, which typically includes the author of the course. Here you can give feedback, ask questions or participate in discussion surrounding the topics covered by the course.

If you are trying to directly engage with the author, please be patient, because our authors are industry experts with multiple commitments. Therefore, it can take some time before they respond and will vary by author.

How do I use the discussion boards?

To get to the discussion board for a course, just go to the course table of contents and click on the "Discussion" tab as shown below.

Our discussion boards are run through Disqus, so in order to access these you will need to sign into a Disqus account or you can register for a Disqus account.  After that, you can post on any of the discussion boards for as long as your subscription is active.

How can I follow a course's discussion?

You can follow a course's discussions to get notified of any new posts by clicking on the "subscribe" button at the bottom of the thread as shown in the screenshot below. 

This will only subscribe you to the specific course's comments, so if you would like to be notified for multiple courses, you would have to subscribe to each course's discussion board.

Can I vote on the discussion boards?

Yes, you can vote on other people's comment, if you disagree or found the comment helpful.  You can simply click on the up or down arrow below the post as shown in the screenshot below.

Why do I have to create a Disqus account to post on the discussion boards?

Currently, we have not integrated our discussion boards with Pluralsight instead of Disqus accounts, but this is on our roadmap for the future.  

We do want our users to be able to sign into Pluralsight and not to worry about another set of credentials, but we need some additional time to work this out.

If you have any feedback or concerns around our discussion boards, you can email into support@pluralsight.com.

I am not getting a response on the discussion boards, what should I do?

If a few days have passed, please email support@pluralsight.com with your question.  We can follow up on your request and try to expedite an answer to your question or concern.
