Any plugin support showing one level threading?


(Jiamin Zhu) #1

To my surprise, there are already some discussions on threading and it’s seems like a genius way. I understand that the default discourse put post in chronological order and each post can display its child posts.

But I want something different.

Just like stack overflow or piazza, I would like user can reply to certain posts or reply to the original questions or simply read other replies . Of course, nested comments are not what I want. One level threading seems the most reasonable way.

Is it possible in discourse?


Any existing plugin enabling one level threading?

This has been discussed a few times.

No plans to add threading.

  • We do plan to improve discourse solved so it optionally pull an except of the solution into the top post
  • We have some discussion about an AMA mode but no concrete steps we will be taking

I’m hoping there can be at least some plugins for that . Said it there isn’t

Discourse is open source, so you could wtrite one or make a post in Marketplace.

So there is a chance others might be interested in contributing to a “bounty”.
