I didn't want to clutter the Easter Egg thread - Nibblet had asked me if I could figure this out. And I thought I had it.

Never one to surrender - I finally did find out how to do it. Took some tinkering. So I am going to use this thread as an example.

The first clue was when I posted a new thread - I saw it immediately "links" to it...
http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t642-linking-to-specific-posts#20166

And that, right there was the key. Now in the next post, I will explain it.

First, you have to have the full thread URL for the topic in question.

For example, this one is:
http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t642-linking-to-specific-posts

Now if I want to link to the second post in this thread, first I need to paste that URL:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t642-linking-to-specific-posts

Now, if I hover over the Linking to specific posts. I_icon10 button of the second post, down on the bottom left hand in Firefox, it shows me:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/post?p=20167&mode=quote

So now, I know the second post's number is 20167 based on that. (I've made it RED so you can see the number I am referencing)

So now if I have the thread's URL and add #(and then the number of that post link) it will take me right to it - for example:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t642-linking-to-specific-posts#20167

Interestingly enough, this only works - for whatever reason - within it's own thread.

So for example, the Egghunt thread is:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t50-easter-eggquest

The post Niblet quoted me think I had solved this is post "20022"

So to link to my stupidity, you'd do: http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t50-easter-eggquest#20022

However, it only takes you to the front page of it, since this isn't the Egghunt Thread.

Why it does this, I have no idea. But at least we're one step closer to linking within a thread...

BOOM! Figured out how to link to a specific post now INTO another thread... But it's messy.

So it's along the same lines...

You need the post's MAIN URL...

For example, the Easter Egg hunt one is:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t50p225-easter-eggquest

Now to make it go to a SPECIFIC post outside of that thread, you need to include: /post?p=(POST NUMBER) using the same method explained above, by hovering over the QUOTE button.

So for example, to go to where I incorrectly told Niblet how to do this, you'd do:

http://fathertreeholt.forumotion.com/t50p225-easter-eggquest/post?p=20022

If Admins want to move this to a better place (I had it in the testing area, because I didn't want to clutter up valid areas, or valid threads, testing this)

You asked me how to link to specific posts; first time I thought I had it, and I was wrong.

All I've done is finally figure out what you asked me to do. Smile

Thank you, Tymber! I'm glad other elf-fans try and provide helpful tips.


By the way, here's the post where I explain how to create a centered, clickable banner.

And there lies the post where I tried the "sending star" character with various sizes and colors.
