What’s the best way to do the above? Our Discourse implementation being relatively new, I’m often finding topics on here which either don’t quite answer my question, haven’t been commented on for a while or are closed. So I want to create a new topic, in the same category (probably) pre-populated with something like “Carrying on the topic discussed in URL”.
Click this button on the post you want to link to:
This opens a popup with a New topic link:
Clicking that link will start a pre-populated topic just as you want
is it instead of the “reply as a linked topic” feature?
little bit hidden, isn’t it?
Yes, this is this feature’s new place since the timeline now covers its old place.
Start typing and then hit the reply glyph on the top of the composer:
Then select “Reply as linked topic”
