Solved adding a link for numbered posts

Post by rocket2300 on April 28th 2016, 7:13 pm

Hi folks,

Im just wondering if its possible to add a link or something to a numbered post (as shown below)



so that if someone clicks on that number it will give them a link to that particular
post that they could copy & post the link into another message. Then if someone
clicked on that link it would take them to that particular post in a topic ?.

^^ That's exactly what the tutorial SLGray posted does ; it installs post numbers in the post AND they're clickable.

@rocket2300 Just click the number on the post and look at your address bar of your browser. There it displays the link of the specific post.

Also you do not have to use numbers to get the link for a certain post in a topic. If you look at this topic, each post has a title. The title is clickable.

Example: Ange Tuteur post: http://help.forumotion.com/t146947-adding-a-link-for-numbered-posts#1011331

Ah ok, I thought it brought something up when you clicked on the
actual number, never thought of looking at the browser bar. Would
be better if something popped up when the number was click though.

Would that be possible or not ?.

On phpBB 3 forums when you press the post titles in a topic, it will refresh the page where the post you press will be in the screen.

For example this topic:

First Post: http://help.forumotion.com/t146947-adding-a-link-for-numbered-posts#1011322

Third Post: http://help.forumotion.com/t146947-adding-a-link-for-numbered-posts#1011330

t146947 the ID for the whole topic. post# is the ID for the posts in the topic.

Oh yes I get that, but trying to explain stuff like copy & paste etc to
those who are not computer savvy is hard work, even with pics Laughing

Thanks for the reply anyway, i'll just not tell them about it. Wink

Maybe we are not understanding what exactly you want? Could you explain further what you want?
