Discourse has a few nice features that you should know of
- Write @username anywhere in a post. The user ‘username’ will get notified.
- At the top right of every post is “Reply as new topic”. Use this to continue a a discussion (a sidetrack) as a new thread.
- If you select some text in a post a button shows up that lets you quote that text in a reply
- When you see “in reply to username” at the top of a post it means that the user didn’t reply to the last post in the thread. To see the post that was replied to simply click the “in reply to username” button.
