How do I move my spectrum community to a custom domain?

June 1, 2020 at 6:45am
I've searched through the documentation and can't find much information about this feature

We don't support custom domains, sorry!

I'm referring to "Migrate your community elsewhere" on the settings page. If it's not supported, why is it on the settings page of a community?

Ah, sorry I was confused what you meant. This isn't a community migration really, but rather a redirect. The wording on that page isn't as clear as it should be. If you are moving off Spectrum, we can redirect traffic to your Spectrum profile and threads to your new community URL (the website field in your community settings)

Is there a deadline to do that?

There is not a deadline, but I would recommend starting to plan sooner so that things can transition more smoothly.

it would be great if we could export our content, I guess opening up an API endpoint will do

Why would you want to export? Really only thing missing is Gitlab support and better profiles & api integrations...not many better things rn

It's not documented at the moment, but it's possible to just inspect the network tab in your dev tools while navigating to a community view.

Ok will do that, I thought it was only an internal request, not available to the outside world
