How to link to a particular message in a thread.

I want to create a reference post that links to particular messages in the thread. Basically because each thread is an entry in a bestiary and I want the first message to be like a table of contents. I want the links to work even when the thread paginates. What's the best way to do this?

How to link to a particular message in a thread.

Here's a link to your msg #1 above as an example:

link to a message in this forum

Syntax is:

http://rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=9590&ti=2074&msgpage=&show=all#1

  • gi is game index
  • ti is thread index
  • you can find both gi and ti by opening the specific thread and looking in the address bar in your browser
  • the number right at the end is the message in that thread to which you want to link
  • show=all argument is required otherwise link won't work once thread goes to multiple pages
  • doesn't work if the linked post has been deleted (obviously)
