Re: Release of Updated Software
I am getting email when I reply to a topic started by someone else. I can't see anything in my profile that controls that or is set to do that.

Re: Release of Updated Software
Problem should be fixed. Please let me know if this or any other problem related to posting or editing messages happens again. Thanks for letting me know.

To everyone: As JonF and Crashfrog have done here and as Buzsaw did via email to Admin, please let me know if you encounter any further problems related to posting or editing messages.

Also, any bugs or enhancements can be brought to board management's attention by posting to the Suggestions forum or sending email to Admin.

Message, Thread and Forum Links
Three new tags that allow easy creation of links to messages, threads and forums have just been released:

  • [msg]
  • [thread]
  • [forum]

To create a link to a message in the current thread, use the [msg] tag with the message number like this:

[msg=16]

Creates this link:

Message 16

To create a link to a message in another thread of the same forum, include both the thread number and the message number, in that order, like this:

[msg=66,14]

Creates this link:

Message 14

To create a link to a message in a thread in a different forum, include the forum number, the thread number, and the message number, in that order, like this:

[msg=5,423,6]

Creates this link:

Message 6

To exclude the message subtitle from the link name, include a minus sign in front of the message number. To leave out the thread link, include a minus sign in front of the thread number. To leave out the forum link, include a minus sign in front of the forum number. If we take the previous example and prefix the numbers with minus signs:

[msg=-5,-423,-6]

Creates this link:

Message 6

To create a link to a thread in the same forum, do this:

[thread=18]

Creates this link:

New Site Search Facility

To create a link to a thread in a different forum, include both the forum number and the thread number, in that order, like this:

[thread=7,81]

Creates this link:

Geologic Column

To exclude the word "Thread" or the forum link, include minus signs like this:

[thread=-7,-81]

Creates this link:

Geologic Column

Create a link to a forum like this:

[forum=9]

Creates this link:

Forum Human Origins and Evolution

To exclude the word "Forum", include a minus sign like this:

[forum=-9]

Creates this link:

Human Origins and Evolution

Re: Message, Thread and Forum Links
Thank you!

Excellent enhancements! One of those "why didn't I think of that" kind of things.

However, it is not clear to me how I figure out what the forum and topic numbers are.

Nose - your message was www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=20&t=32&m=22#22 -->www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=20&t=32&m=22#22">http://www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=20&t=32&m=22#22

The forum is 20
The topic is 32
The topic page is 2
The message is 22

Personally, I think I'll stick to the old system.
