Linking to specific article instead the whole topic.

Post by marsh »

Linking to a specific article (and not whole topic) is possible using following example:

Code: Select all

[url=http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?p=11#11]Welcome![/url]
The article number is discovered by quoting an article and looking for the "p=number" in the address bar of web browser.
I cannot remember it, so I hope template is useful here.

This is a good and helpful info for forum users, marsh.

A minor addition:

You can either link to a post or to a topic - the result will be pretty much the same. The one and only difference is that with a link to a post the appropriate post will be shown immediately.

A link to a topic looks like this for example:

Code: Select all

[url=http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=13652]Toolbar skins[/url]
Please note in the above BBCode that it says "t=" (topic) instead of "p=" (post).

Edit: I've just read the subject of this topic and realized that I am offtopic. Maybe my additions are useful, nevertheless...
