Ordering replies by most liked

Forgive me if I’ve missed something here but I have tried search but to no avail.

I would like to sort replies to a specific topic by most liked. So the replies with most likes are at the top.

I’ve tried opening the topic and adding ‘/?order=likes’ to the end but that seems to just give me a load of replies, that are liked in various quantities, in random order.

Summarizing the topic also doesn’t give me quite what I want.

Can anyone help?

AFAIK there’s no way to do this at present.

It would definitely need a plug-in and would also make replies to the topic very confusing.

Social platforms such as Reddit which sort by likes support threaded conversations to alleviate that issue. Discourse has no concept of threading.

is there a solution to this? I am interested in this as well. What kinds of hacky plugins or workarounds are possible here? are there plans to implement heirarchical reply threading (a la reddit or stack overflow), which would make this easier?

is as close as you’re going to get atm. Which is pretty close.
