    Red face Link to a post [was: A very stupid question]

    I don't know whether this question should appear in this forum or not but I want to know how can I link a hyperlink to the post corresponding to who has replied before.

    Did I make sense?

    If not, take an example, Let I post something here as: "What is charset?" and somebody say Dan replied to my topic. Next, I want to reply quoting few of his words and with a hyperlink to his post (which will appear as the button with white arrow with blue background). How do I do that?

    I am sorry if this topic should have been posted somewhere else and please help me asap coz everytime I post, I miss that.

    Click the "quote" button (bottom left) on that person's post.

    And just so you know for next time, you should ask these questions in the Forum Support forum.

    If you want to link to a post, you can find the URI in the upper right-hand corner of the post (in the blue border). For instance, this post will have #4. When you right-click on the link most browsers offer a choice to copy the link address.

    Then use [url=...]link text[/url] to insert the link.

    You can also locate the post number in the link address and use [post=123456]link text[/post].

    Thanks Tommy once again!

    I got my answer. I knew how to quote. I wanted to know about linking to a particular post (like it is known as named anchor in HTML) which you have answered.

    Thanks once again! Cheers
