September 9th, 2005, 09:09 AM #1referencing a specific post within a busy thread
Can someone be so kind as to please tell me how I can reference a specific post within a busy thread, in ANOTHER thread by hyperlinking to it?
How can I do that? I know how to hyperlink to the thread, but how does one hyperlink to just a specific post?
Thx in advance for any replies.

Click on the post number link of the post you are wanting to reference. It's on the top right-hand side of each post. It will open a new window which contains just that post of the thread. Copy and paste that url wherever you are wanting to post the link.

If you want to show the entire thread, starting at that post (which is what I usually find most helpful), the only way I've found is a manual process: Start by copying the link like Kellie described, like this:
Change "showpost" to "showthread". Change "&postcount=2" to "#post" and the post number. Here's an example of the end result:

I've usually right click on the post # then click on "copy shortcut" and past it where I want a link to go. I don't know if it goes to the individual post or to the thread. Here's a quick test to find out.
I just clicked the link and discovered that it goes to the individual post only not the entire thread.

I never noticed the thread link in the upper right corner until you pointed it out, Thanks Haiko.[color=blue]"Those who give up their freedom for a little security deserve neither freedom nor security" - Benjamin Franklin[/color]
