Yes, we have added Discussion feeds to Community!.
Community members can now post updates and share links or videos with others in the community through the feeds.
Permissions on feeds
Depending on whether or not a user is a part of the community, or is an admin of the Community, the feed options will change.
If a non-member tries to comment or like a post, then an error message is shown on the top of the page.
Another category of a user is a non-approved one. A non-approved user cannot view the feeds until the account is approved by the site admin.
Disable feeds on Communities
By default, the discussion feed is enabled once you create a community.
If you want to limit the interaction to just one-way - from admins to members then you can disable it from the community settings page.
