      This issue only needs to be tested in 1 device.

      1. In the app as a student, open a forum discussion where you can reply.
      2. Add a new reply in offline.
      3. Still in offline, click to edit the reply. Check that the reply disappears and it's replaced by a form to edit it. Before this patch you saw both the reply and the form.
      4. Save the changes, go online and synchronize. Check that the data is sent fine.
      5. In online, click to edit the post you just created. Check that the behaviour is the same as before, the post disappears and it's replaced by a form to edit it.

      Description

      When viewing a forum discussion there are 3 ways to create/edit data:

      1. Add a new reply. We display the form after the post viewing replied, in same page.
      2. Edit an offline reply. We display the form after the post being edited, in same page. It's a bit confusing because you see the post data twice, in the post and in the form.
      3. Edit an online reply. We open a modal to edit the data.

      IMO the first one is ok, but I think option 2 and 3 should have the same behaviour. I think it's important to be able to view the other posts when editing a reply, so I think in both cases we should display the form in the same page, without a modal.

      Also, it looks weird to see the same data twice when editing, IMO we should hide the post while editing (so the post will be replaced by a form to edit it).
