Hi!

My last one for now, haha.

Our forum doesn't have too many separate threads but uses a smaller number of "mega threads" instead. In our case, it makes more sense to post the link to a newly posted blog article as a post in an existing thread (the linked one) instead of making a new thread for it.

Would this be an option in the future?

Best, Jos

Another great idea I think will be useful for others and relatively simple to implement. I will keep this in mind for the release once user sync is out of beta.

This feature can be useful to control duplicate threads as well. Suppose a thread already exists on the topic but a new WP post is being made, then the WP author can just link to the existing thread while creating the post and respond there using a new reply than a new duplicate thread.

I suggest adding a per post option whether to leave a reply response while linking the thread or not.
