    Question Link to a specific post?

    Howdy-

    I know how to link to a thread, but I do not know how to link to a specific post. Is there a way to do that?

    I only know of one way:

    Click the quote button and watch the URL change in your Address Bar. Then click the back button and the specific post address will be shown in the Address Bar.

    At least in Mozilla Firebird....

    Doesn't seem to work in IE 6 or Netscape 7 on Win XP Home.

    Bring up notepad in the background. Then go to the specific post you are wanting to link, watch it come up like Dave said it would in the address bar. Right click on address bar and copy. Then paste it in notepad. Then you can leave it there if you like and copy and paste from notepad to where you want it. Seems sort of compicated but it works pretty good and really isn't at all difficult. Try it and see.

    See if that takes you to a post you did a few days ago, Bradford. I used the exact directions Dave said to try.

    It took me to the reply page, not to the post.

    I did this different, I found one of your posts, did a search for other posts you have done, and clicked on one to get to it. Then the correct address is in the address bar, so I copied it and pasted it to this, now try it.

    I just tried it and it worked fine. Let us know if there is an easier way.

    Thanks you

    That seems to work. I also tried going out to vBulletin's home site and their site seems to be down.
