Solved Where to find post number???

Post by AdminOnyx on December 13th 2013, 9:55 pm

I have been wondering a long time, how to find the post number on posts in my forum, (like almost every forum has a button or icon somewhere that says post #) and had given up thinking it was not supported on forumotion.

Then I see this in my stats today...

http://fashionvixens.forumotion.com/t758-a-past-blast-from-the-king-of-bling#2098

Notice the post # is at the end of the thread url.

How did they get to this, how do I find it.

It would be really nice to highlight a specific post in a thread, but I can find how to do it.

Also, another thing that annoys me a bit, when the feeds come thru my rss feeds I have linked up across the internet, instead of showing or highlighting the actual new post, it highlights or links to the beginnning of the thread, so on FB for instance, my feeds appear to be posting the same post over and over again.
It makes it appear like spam, as instead of showing the recent post, it shows the opening post again and again.

I hope I am making sense, and someone can help me out here.

Hello AdminOnyx,

If I recall there was a tuto on the French support which will help you achieve a link for the post ID's.

See this tuto :
Show the message ID link in topics

Additionally you can see the post ID of a message by checking the link of a quote, ip, or edit.

i.e. p=257

Can you click the titles in each of the messages in a post? That is how you get the message's ID.

Unfortunately phpbb2 doesn't have that ability like the other versions. The tuto posted by Matriochka will help with that through template editing though. Wink
