Solved Creating a direct link from forum index to important message

Post by Wikid on April 18th 2013, 1:55 pm

How can I create a link like this http://help.forumotion.com/t93820-general-rules ?
Where by visitors can click straight from the forum index , without having to click on another post ?
I have a Catagory titled "Quick Start Guide" & the only way I can link to the info is via a forum (of the same name) & then a post on this forum, which visitors need to click on to open.
I'd like something able to be read if possible.
Thank you in advance.

This will be a new forum I'm creating for friends.
The 1st Catagory is titled "Quick Start Guide" How do I get visitors to be able to read all the info in this guide, with the shortest number of clicks ?

Is there a way of adding the info to a pinned post in a forum that doesn't have to have the title clicked on to be read ? (Like a global announcement, but just on one forum)

I am unable to understand what you really want. Its confusing. Do you have any forum or a screenshot for us to understand this?

Screenshot

I'm trying to place this info when it can be seen with one click, rather than 3.
The link needs to be on the forums "Home" page as obvious as possible.
The only other way I can think of is to do an html page & link a widget to it ?

The first quick start guide is a forum. The 2nd one is a thread?

Yes exactly....is there a way I can link straight to the post info instead of the thread (where the post needs to be opened to be read)? As in the example I posted in my opening post.

So when you click on forum URL, that thread should open?

When you create the Forum, you can use such a code in the title.
Code:
<a href="Thread URL">Forum Title</a>
