On previous article, you have hiding discussion panel, but you can also disable the discussion panel if all courses to be made or those that have been created do not require the discussion feature. To disable discussion feature, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Open edX server console.

  2. Open and edit LMS configuration (lms.env.json).

  3. Then find the "FEATURES" configuration, add ENABLE_DISCUSSION_HOME_PANEL, ENABLE_DISCUSSION_SERVICE into "FEATURES" array and set to false. See the following codes snippet:

    "FEATURES": {
        ...
        "ENABLE_DISCUSSION_HOME_PANEL": false,
        "ENABLE_DISCUSSION_SERVICE": false,
        ...
    },
  1. Restart LMS services.
