Each topic in Slab has its own page. In this article, you will learn the basics of a topic page. A separate article explains how to make updates.

Who can see the topic page?

The visibility of a topic and its page is controlled by its permission settings and the user's membership status. This article provides detailed explanations.

On a private topic, users who don't have view access to a topic page will be shown the option to request access from a topic owner. Admins of your team also have an additional option to join the topic with their admin superpower.

Editing the topic page

Topic members, with edit permission, can customize a topic’s name, description, and banner image. Learn more about editing topics pages here.
