    This might sound ridiculous, but is there a public API to be able to reply to existing threads programmatically?

    Why I ask is because I want to unify the way I announce news or post changelogs across different channels (WordPress, forums and soon Discord). As an Asset Store publisher, that would be a treat :p

    While WordPress and Discord got me covered, what about Unity Forums?

    Hey there!

    Apologies for the delay in my reply.

    We've taken a look at the backend of this particular forum version and unfortunately, there isn't a public API that comes with this.

    We are still exploring potential new forums so this may change when we move versions.

    Thank you for your feedback <3

    Wouldn't that depend on the version of Xenforo unity forums is running on?

    Oh this is so exciting. Anything would be better than what we now have, but discourse.org gets my vote. Just 5 minutes ago i tried to search for "API" on a thread here but of course this forum won't allow that!
