I’m still new enough to using Discourse that this leaves me completely confused and makes me realize I don’t understand the basics.
I’ve had in my mind that a “Topic” differs from a “Reply” in that Topics are first, everything else under it is a Reply. But that both Topics and Replies are both considered “Posts.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but what I’m concluding now is that “Topic” is synonymous with “Post” and that “Reply” is distinct in that it comes under a topic/post. If that’s correct, then why would you ever need to refer to a “first” post? Posts are always first.
I have a feeling I’m still getting this wrong. I apologize for getting this far without understanding the basics. Please help me out.
