  • In other words, you suggest a simple mechanism of referencing threads. May be something like (right click on the top link, get reference) and then paste it? But I think it'll be hard to implement.

  • Some forum softwares even have a post number in the upper right corner of each post that gives you the link to just that post.  For linking the whole thread, I first copy and paste the title of the thread, highlight what I have just pasted, click the create link icon, and paste the address.  Example:  Post Link.

    no, but post within threads. if you want to reference a thread- go and copy URL in the nav bar!

    > May be something like (right click on the top link, get reference) and then paste it

    yes, I exactly mean getting reference to a message

    > But I think it'll be hard to implement.

    Oh, please! Stop kidding. That's just adding few lines within the aspx template!

    Why? Let's

    1. open up the page source code.
    2. Conduct a search by query '<li id='
    3. copy the id
    4. form the url as pageUrl + "#" + idWeJustCopied

    Viola!

    The link above is ideally the link to my post!

  • As I mentioned above, thread referencing is no big deal.

  • I see - I guess it will be nice.

  • Can there be a functionality to get the post link to share it and cite it in another threads?

    Use the thread's RSS feed button.   The links from it in IE are explicit links to a post.    The only problem with it is that in really long threads you may not be able to get all the way back to the beginning.   In that case what you could do is use a Community NNTP bridge (not the MS one) to download the whole thread.   Then you can get a post link easily that way too.


    FYI

  • Oh :) It's much more simple just to examine the code)

    I think it's a forum for suggestions...

    Not really.  Before I realized the possibility of using the RSS feed it used to be possible and was usually suggested to right-click, Copy Shortcut on the Quote button and then edit out the bits which made it a Quote request instead of just a request to show the Post.   There were a lot more steps involved doing it that way than using the RSS feed.   Now the other method isn't available anyway.

    As you see, such link exists but it's cryptically hidden. It'd be great to link it up to the post date in the top right corner (e.g. 2 hours 57 minutes ago to 2 hours 57 minutes ago)!

    Thanks a lot!
