Link that pre-populates the composer?

I looked for a topic that requests the following and found this one, but I’m thinking there’s much more overhead with that.

What I want is to be able to link to our discourse forum site with parameters that will open up to a particular topic category, with the ‘Create a new Topic’ overlay pulled up, populated with some text.

EDIT: nevermind the ‘to a particular topic category’ portion of my request, as I see there is a route/slug that does that.

Is this possible?

bumping this topic…

I see that a couple admins edited this post title, which is cool. Any advice or words on whether this can be done at the moment?


This is now a duplicate another feature request which has been completed…

You can now prefill the subject / title and body content in the composer along with selecting a category via a link see:
