Hi, I would like to propose a feature where the “replied to” icon contains some context of the message so that it’s instantly apparent what message is being replied to instead of needing to press the button in order to display the content.
Currently on Discourse it’s like this:
And on Discord it’s like this:
“some example message” is the content from the post that’s being replied to.
Not sure if you mean in the Discourse chat function. If you do, then I figured out how to do it before by modifying the chat template, but the chat template kept changing so much that I got tired of updating it for each change.
If that’s what you meant and want to know more how I did it, let me know and I’ll post more here.
Ideally, I’d also prefer it was an option in core. I love how WhatsApp and Signal and I think most chat apps show the message in the reply indicator.
Hi, thanks, but what I meant is inside a topic on the forum.
It kind of already does, it’s just hidden behind a click:
I guess the challenge here is what part of a long post do you take?
Unlike Discord, it’s not a chat system where text is often just a one liner.
For what it’s worth, that’s how it works in our chat
yeah, what I want is to not need to click the button, just to have the first line (like a 100 chars) of the post being replied to in plain sight. That would satisfy my needs.
