Doctordick Posted August 23, 2010 Report Share Posted August 23, 2010 I keep a file of all my posts referenced by your "post number" (I do that because you don't make those old references available even though they are still in your database). I keep this file for the purpose of finding references quickly. (My file contains a short description of what the post is about and what might be of interest there. In the old forum, I could quote these posts via something like quote=Doctordick; 1172].../quote] where that number created a "spot" which one could click on to see the whole actual post. In the new forum, you are using something like quote name='Rade' timestamp='1281850884' post='298853'].../quote]. Is that number '298853' the post number? Can the "timestamp" be omitted? I haven't tried anything yet so any clarification would be appreciated. I have intentionally omitted the opening square bracket so you could see what I typed. A second question I have is creating a direct ual to a specific post. In the past I used things like A definition of what I mean can be found on url=http://hypography.com/forums/showthread.php?p=230775#post230775]this post/url]! (Again, the opening square bracket on the "tag" has been omitted so you can see what I typed.) This is exactly the way I would refer to any other url. That sort of think has worked in the past on every forum I have posted on but it doesn't seem to work here anymore. Do you have a way of referencing posts directly? In particular are those post numbers still usable or will I have to reconstruct my entire file? Any help here or should I just trash my files?
