I have the write api plugin installed as well as the question and answer plugin. We are successfully creating topics and posts. Is it possible to create a topic as a question? I tried adding isQuestion (equals 1) to the POST body when creating the topic but it was ignored. Would the write-api have to be forked and updated to support the optional value of isQuestion? It seems clear in the question and answer plugin that it doesn't create/expose any write api of its own.
Browsing of topics in mobile
Just a thought that occurred... right now:
User clicks on topic, topic loads first post. If user clicks on the teaser timestamp, they are brought to the last post.
On mobile, every second counts. Clicking the title instead of the teaser means I have to hit back and then click the teaser again.
What if the flow for mobile were changed to the following?
Teaser clicked, same behaviour. If topic title clicked, go to the latest unread post (aka the "bookmark"), if set. Otherwise, go to first post.
Slight change in UX, but would you find that confusing?
@julian Do it, scrolling to the last post is a ballache and a half, it should do this on desktop too, if I've read 3/4 of a topic already and 20 new posts come in, I don't want last post or first post, I want where I last stopped reading from.
