Is it possible to reply to a topic without bumping it?

Sometimes I want to reply to a person, to answer a question, without “bumping” or “signal-boosting” their topic to the top of “Latest”. Is there some way to do that, as a user, or some way to enable that as an admin in the configuration settings?

I can DM the person to answer the question in their post but then everybody else who sees their post won’t know it’s already been answered or responded to.

If you are a staff member then yes there is.

  1. When you are composing a reply press where read arrow is indicating.

  1. Select this option



Thank you. I wonder if the Discourse dev team would consider allowing admins to toggle that feature on for regular users as well.

Not sure. I’ll let them answer that :wink:

Can you explain the use case in detail? It’s not something that I remember being requested before.
