Discussion and Comment Overview

edited December 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have been setting up a new site with Vanilla to replace an old one. The business owner of the site is insisting on the same layout as the old one. It uses a discussion format that doesn't just show the discussion title, it shows links to all the comments indented under that. This allows users to quickly see who replied when to their discussion. For example, typical forum software would display as follows: discussion 1 discussion 2 discussion 3 Their current site's layout (which they want to keep) looks like this: discussion 1 comment 1 comment 2 discussion 2 comment 1 discussion 3 comment 1 comment 2 comment 3 I have tried to motivate them to not use this format, but there are various reasons they want to stay with it. I'm looking into writing an extension to do this, but before I did I just wanted to see if anybody else had come across this and written an extension for it or had another solution. I've browsed all the extensions and didn't see anything.

    Could be accomplished by executing a function on the PostDiscussionOptionsRender delegate, which receives the current Discussion. You can then use the DiscussionID to call up the applicable comments.
