Replies shown for topics you read

Hi guys. I know a lot of you probably know about this feature which basically shows you the replies for a topic you viewed. I think this feature should be removed because sometimes I just want to read a community tutorial, building support etc but I’m not interested in reading the replies.

I think you can add a button which is automatically off and what that button does is basically it lets you choose whether you want to see replies to a topic. Or, you could have a setting which turns off all replies for topics but I feel that the first one is better because you can choose what you want to see.

Do you agree?

This is something you would need to request on the discourse meta. However I do have a solution to what I think is your issue.

I think the issue you are referring to is sometimes when you open a topic (I believe when you have already opened it previously) you find yourself mid way through / at the bottom of the replies and if there are hundreds it can be hard / time consuming to reach the actual post.

The solution?

Go to the Url in your browser and you should see something like this:

To get to the topic you just edit the URL to:

If it is available however I just recommend using the scroll bar on the side.


You can ignore the reply’s. I see no need for them to be hidden.

Hi. Thank you for your suggestion. However, I know about this and this isn’t what I was suggesting. @CAP7A1N got it right. Sorry if my topic was unclear and caused confusion.

Sorry, I just thought ignoring the replies was way to obvious a solution for the topic. Sorry for misinterpreting your issue.

Just read which one you want to read then, why do you need a feature for this…?

Then don’t read them? Simple. If you end up halfway scrolled into a topic then that is likely because you read it already and that is where you were left off.

And for building support questions, the answer is in the replies.
