Remove "Log in with Discourse" link from the Wikimedia Space blog sidebar
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

As explained at T226545#5291967, the "Login with Discourse" link at the https://space.wmflabs.org sidebar might have something to do with the signup loop problem.

Let's remove it for now. Only contributors to the blog need that link, which can be placed i.e. in the footer, or in the page explaining how to contribute a blog post.

Instead, and also for now, we can add to the sidebar a link "Join Wikimedia Space" pointing to https://discuss-space.wmflabs.org/t/how-to-join-wikimedia-space/113

All these are interim solutions while waiting for T215052: Add MediaWiki login support to Discourse.

Qgil moved this task from Backlog to Evaluated on the Space (Jul-Sep-2019) board.

I have moved "Log in with Discourse" from the sidebar to the footer. Let's see whether this helps getting less recurrences of T226545: Loop trying to create an account in Wikimedia Space in certain cases.
