One consequence of this activity is that if you are in the habit of saving URLs from the address bar these will change as threads are moved between folders.
This means bookmarking them from your browser will not work this way.

There are two ways around this:
  1. To bookmark a post in a browser, first look in the top right of the post, where the posting date is shown. Click on the little page icon and you will get a direct url to that specific post's ID, which is preserved across folder moves.
  2. Use the "Bookmark topic" to have it saved in your user control panel.

Creating perma links

Thank you for your hint regarding broken links, CameronD. Actually, whenever setting a link to another bug report the link will break as soon as the linked bug report is moved to another sub-forum. To avoid this, please remove the "f=<nn>&" from the original link. This way you get a perma link, i.e. a link that will always work. Please find an example below.

Original link:

Code: Select all
Perma link:

Code: Select all
