Many websites have a feature where you can click on an icon (see image below) and that will give you a URL link, which directs you to that postspecifically. This is a valuable feature when you are trying to find aspecific post that is buried in a thread with many posts.

The only way we can do this in Guildportal is if we click on the Last Post

Is it possible for Guildportal to have a feature where we can extract a direct link to a post?

Thank you

I wonder if they thought of adding a search feature to the forums as well.

i think you might find a similar feature at the bottome of your forums board in the recent posts box, not sure how far back that can take you though... i rarely use this box myself, and just as rarely do i find the need to jump to a specific post. This may be because my members don't spend much time on the site, they prefer to spend it in game    lol

We have that also But our forum posts move very fast and I would like a way to better track posts. I think it would be a great addition to Guildportal.

I noticed that when you click on a link in the Most Recent Activity, it goes to the last post in the thread. I like that a lot.

I'd still like to see a feature where you can click on a link that will pull you the post you want.

Thanks

Thanks you Sandy and Aaron or whoever is responsible for the new Option to get the direct link. It's one of the best things that happened to Guildportal. /thumbup

Nice option!

It's a little buggy (for IE 7 anyway, not sure about other browsers) in that the expanded the window only appears up to the bottom of the initially loaded page (one page length). If you scroll beyond that point, you may not see the expanded window unless you quick scroll to the top before it fades.

I'm sure this is new and will probably get ironed out soon. I put in a ticket for good measure.


EDIT:
Sweet, it's changed to a direct link now and works great! Thank you Aaron!

Cool. Thanks for the ticket Everdark. On the Mac platform, Firefox/1.5.0.6, it appears as a direct link.
