Hi All,

Is there any (easy)way to get URL for a post? Say, if I need to mention link to a particular post from a thread, how should one obtain it?

Currently, I follow the crud way: open page source, find out the post id, and the link would be <thread_url> + "#" + <post_id>.

I would appreciate if anyone's aware of any simpler way for this.

Many Thanks.

At the top of your post, it says something like "posted Today 17:20:26" in magenta. Immediately to the left of those words is a tiny document icon; it's a link to your post. Right-click it, and copy the link address.

Over a thousand posts and I never knew this...

Thanks a lot Ernest!
