Published topic with a link to itself in the forum?

Oh could be, like the “View discussion on this topic” link in docs. Kinda like my screenshots above then, but only automatic. Doesn’t really make sense for page publishing, given how it works, you can link to a published page from countless places on the forum. I have links in my forum’s navigation sidebar menu that go to published pages. Perhaps some options for attaching published pages to topics for discussion could be a feature request? Almost sounds like they want some kind of embedded commenting.

Perhaps OP should check out the docs plugin.
