Anchor URL for a specific message?
How can I find out how to link to a specific message that will still work even if that message isn't the latest message in the thread anymore?
Thanks.

In reply to IamJacksUsername (msg # 1):

If the thread has more than one page, I click all. Then I copy that link into the new post and add a pound sign and the message number to the end. The link will have an ending that looks something like this.

&show=all#267

I didn't put the whole link, as it's against the rules to link to games. But if it were the entire address, it would go to message #267 in a particular thread.

I like to link to one message above the one I want. I'm not sure if it's just my screen's layout, but when I link directly to a message, it skims off the top line.

This doesn't work if a thread is longer than 1000 posts. Then the links get screwy and sometimes all doesn't work.
