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.
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.
