Hiding replies in forum threads (discussion view)

There is one essential feature I was looking for, but haven’t found in this forum.
The thing is about replies - we can easily seen them by clicking below a post, but when we scroll the topic further, we just read the same again. I’d like to have an option to switch the view between all posts and 400 pages (lol) and only posts on the topic with replies to them (only 100 pages!).
Currently we have this:

| 1 post
|- 1st reply to post 1
| 2 post
|- 1st reply to post 2
|- 2nd reply to post 2
| 1st reply to post 2
| 1st reply to post 1
| 2nd reply to post 2

And I’d like to be able to switch between:

| 1 post
| 2 post
| 1st reply to post 2
| 1st reply to post 1
| 2nd reply to post 2

(just like it looks now when not using the replies collapsing function) and:

| 1 post
|- 1st reply to post 1
| 2 post
|- 1st reply to post 2
|- 2nd reply to post 2

Something like on Reddit, actually. I think it would make the forum waaaay more readable between thousands of posts.

I don’t know of any way to do that. I’d suggest checking the Discourse website to see if you can find something. It might be possible there is an option we could ask Small Giant to turn on.
