Hope this hasn’t come up yet and I just haven’t figured out where.
I would absolutely love to see the linking functionality in Discourse work to some extent like Wordpress’, so it would let me do a find-as-I-type search for existing topics to quickly link those in a post. I use this several times a day, but it requires an additional browser tab to find the topics.
Here is a screenshot of how Wordpress does it
- Encourage pointing to internal topics and thus reduce duplication, while increasing value of existing knowledge
- Gain in productivity and usability
- The basic technology is already there, in the find-as-you-type search
I am not a dev person so I can’t really judge how big of a headache this is, but just from a user perspective this would be a small but enormous help. Thanks for reading.
