My number one issue with discourse is that I’ve to be really careful when copying urls.
I want to quickly post a link to the welcome topic to a friend. I right-click and use ‘copy link address’, like I would on any other website too.
When I paste it I get this:
Now, because of the way discourse remembers my last position, this doesn’t actually link to the start of the topic but instead to post 23. I have to remember to remove /23 from the url.
This makes quick sharing of links cumbersome. I know there is a separate share button but I just feel like this breaks the expectations of web users in some way.
I, at least, would prefer if discourse would not include the ‘you have read up to this post’ info in the url itself.
