How do I do an internal link that goes directly to a particular post in a thread? I've seen several that have a particular number in the text line that references a particular post in a string of posts. Where do I find that reference number?

If you put quote="so and so" it will give you the name of the person you're quoting.

If you click on the little note icon in the upper left-hand side of any post (the one that indicates if it's new or already read), it will give you the link to that particular post. Cut and paste that link into the thread and off you go.

All these years looking for that and I'd still never come upon it. THANX!!!

Something I found out....

When you give your opinion, instead of saying "0.02" or "two cents", it's possible to say

2¢!

I just held down the option key and typed "4" --at least that's how it works on Apple. Someone with a PC might want to check it out.

There you go...just my 2¢! :D :wink:

Sheila can type a cent symbol in Word. (Yahoo is my friend!) You do that by holding down the alt key while typing 0162 on the number pad, then hit enter.

But, I still can't do it on TMB!

:shock: That's more work than just writing out the word, or putting $.02

Okay, now I've found another way how to do the cent sign in Word:

You hit the control key, plus the forward slash, plus the "c" key.

But, I STILL can't do this on TMB.

The URL tag
This tag forms clickable links. You can set just the link, such as:

http://www.themarriagebed.com

or make a word or words into a link like this:

The Marriage Bed - tech support for your marraige

The code for these two links, with the bracket change from [ and ] to { and }, is:

{url}http://www.themarriagebed.com[/url}
{url=http://www.themarriagebed.com}The Marriage Bed - tech support for your marraige{/url]




Quite a while ago, another member told me how make a word a clickable link, but I have forgotten how. I tried your example above, but it didn't work. I seem to recall that the way the other member told me how to do it was different from what you have instructed. What am I doing wrong?
