Thanks, let me ask the discourse team if there is another way.
Since the github plugin is too complicated for me. :sweat_smile:

Generally, Discourse does not do “threading” in the same fashion. It uses a different paradigm.

It provides breadcrumbs for replies but Topics are usually organised such that they remain specific to a single topic.

If you want the discussion to branch you have the option to get a moderator to split off the topic to a new dedicated one. There will be a breadcrumb link back to the original topic.

This has been discussed a lot here so you should find other discussions on it via search.
