Hello,

Has somebody already wrote a template to display the hierarchy of topic/posts of a forum or document discussion ?
As you may know a discussion contains all its posts, and the posts have cm:references relationships between then to remember which one is the answer to another one. I want to write a template to really show the answers hierarchy, like :

Discussion1
—Post1
——Answer1
———Answer to Answer1
———Other answer to Answer1
————Answer to Other anwer…
——Answer2
——Answer3
—Post2
——Answer to Post2
Discussion2


and so on…

Is it possible in FreeMarker to display an unlimited hierarchy ?
Should it be done using the "recurse" instruction ?
Any help/idea would be appreciated !
