Link to a message in this game?  How is it done?
Maybe I'm being a bit thick here but how to I create links to specific posts within a thread?  I want to have to index my ST content - running a sandbox means I have a fair amount of info to scroll through, and that will only ever increase.

So, how do I create a 'link to a message in this game'?

A GM can use this basic form of a link to a specific message:

<a href="URL for game here#msg. no. here">Text for Link here</a>

Just as a "real-world" example:

<a href="https://www.rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=9590&ti=1946&date=1558952461#1"Link to Post No. 1 in this thread"</a>

This yields:

<a href="https://www.rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=9590&ti=1946&date=1558952461#1"Link to Post No. 1 in this thread"</a>

(since I'm not a GM here...)

Non-GMs may also just paste the URL to the message.  Go to the forum where the message is that you wish to link to, copy it's URL from your browser window, paste it into your message where you want the link displayed, adding the #msg. no at the end.

https://www.rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=9590&ti=1946&date=1558952461#1

yields:
