Hacking discourse a bit, I realise that only the pinned topics are the ones that brings the
excerpt and while I can update the serialiser of the topic to bring that
excerpt attr I would like to avoid to hack with backend as it gets more difficult to maintain that just hacking the client.
The question is:
What is different from the pinned topics from standard topics that only the pinned ones can display the excerpt?
As an image is better than a thousand words. This is my local environment within the latest page as you can see only the pinned topic brings the excerpt. Why? and How I can change that by using a Discourse theme?
It sounds wrong to assume is not possible as those excerpt get enabled when we pin a topic. I guess what I need is to Tweak the query that the discovery topics page does in order in to ask the excerpt always… but honestly, I still have hard times understanding how the data flow goes within discourse even after having some experience hacking this.
Documentation about how data flow of discourse works would be helpful too.
Thanks a lot!!
