#3999 new enhancement

Add link/button to create new topic near "reply form"

Reported by: tobifjellner Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


Quite often, users who want to ask a new question submit their question as a reply to some earlier question (their own question or someone else's).

One reason for this seems to be that they've arrived to the forum either via an emailed link from a topic they've participated in earlier, or via Google.

And, once you're inside a specific topic, it's not too obvious how to add a NEW question/topic. There will be a link to the forum itself in the sidebar (which is further down on narrow screens), but it's still not obvious that that's the way to go.

Instead, they'll fill out the only form they see.

Suggestion: Add a button near the response form "Create new topic"
