I know that it's possible in Steve's Forums' to posta link to a specific thread in another forum, by cutting and pasting the address of that thread. I also know it's possible to go straight to a particular message in that thread, with an extra bit of syntax on the end of the thread address, including something like "&jumpto&#10". I knowbecause I've seen it in addresses at the top of my browser page.

I can't remember the exact syntax, and can't make it work. I can't remember the context in which I saw it work (perhaps following a search).

Please can a kind moderator/java expert help? I need to point folk in one forum to the 13th post in a thread in another forum, and I don't want them to have to look at the preceding 12 messages first.

TIA, Alan T

You can see examples of how it's done by viewing the list of someone's posts in their profile. But it doesn't work very well, especially if the topic has a lot of images in the posts before the one you want to reference.

Thanks very much, TCav. I'll try it & see what it does.

It's justworked perfectly for what I wanted, thanks. I've also realised now where I could have found the answer. It's in the address every time we click on the green "go to first new post" down-arrow.

2 out of 10 to me for observational skills, and full marks to you for helping me. Thanks again!
