Use Topic Template with create topic link


I have a category on my forum with a topic template. For ease of access I want to create a link that will auto-open the create topic panel with this category loaded. Right now I have a link to /new-topic?category_id=7, which correctly starts a new topic for that category. However, this doesn’t use the topic template. If I manually click the Create Topic button it does use this template. How can I combine these two and create a link that uses the topic template?
