Post # question.

Would it or is it possible to include the original post # when it is included in an quote or reply? This would make it easier to look at the original post especially in threads like the PPP which grows by several pages/posts daily.

Are you talking about using the multi-quote function, which you turn on to the right of the quote button?

It looks like this:

You just click this multi-quote button on each post you want to quote in your reply.

Ex: Say you wanted to quote posts #1, #2, and #5. You would just click/turn on the multi quote button on each of those posts first, then hit the reply button or the quote button.

Or are you wanting the actual post # (like yours was # 1 above), so a person would know exactly which post to go look at?

No not exactly, but thanks for explaining what that do- hickey is

I mean for example in the PPP thread, Turbo posted a reply in my post # 7289 today that I would like to look at before I reply, but it takes awhile to trace back to it. if his original post # is included, then it could easily be traced.

Granted anything that Turbo posts is not worth the time or trouble to refer back to, but he is just an example

Okay, just click the little arrow to the right or the original posters name to take you to it.

It looks like this:

Yes, but if I quote your original post or your last post, like above, all I have to do is click the little white arrow in the blue box to the right of your name, to take me to whichever post was quoted in the forum thread.

I thought that was what you were trying to do, is to go to the original post of the quoted one

Well this is the second thing I learned here today - never paid attention to the little blue box with the arrow in it before.

Thanks

Glad your fixed up. We'll see if Turbs reads this later and goes back to the original post.

I should of added that he is a very poor example, but I know that most everyone here knows that.
