Numbering posts

Postby Tejada » Wed Jun 24, 2015 1:00 am

Would it be possible to number posts? If you don't want to quote yourself or someone else but are responding to a comment a ways back it would be great if you could just say whatever number post it was. You can't even say what page people can go look at to find the post your referencing as people are using different posts-per-page settings.
I have never been mad online.

Point: more efficient than requiring posters to quote posts.

Counter-point: less efficient because readers will have to jump back to X number post for context.

You can do this already (kind of). Above each post there is a hyperlink. The URL that is generated has a unique identifier with it assigned to that post.

Example to your OP: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=4850#p231494
We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will yet swell the chorus when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
