    Show reference number of each post

    I just wondered if its possible to make a change to my board default settings to show the reference number of each post. I ask this because when reading a thread its not always easy to identify which post a person is responding to. For clarity: The post has the number of the post it refers to but my posts are listed without a corresponding number. In most cases this is not a problem, but occasionally I find it difficult to identify the post referred to. (Is that Clarity? I think not! It

    Not clear at all!
    Don't you see the hyperlink/ 're: 12345 from Username' as below?

    Or do you mean you are in Threaded mode and want to see the post numbers in the list of other posts below the post currently viewed.

    The first number shown is the number of the Post. The second number is the one it is Refering to and this is clickable to take you there.

    Rupert notice the little <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> box. Those first numbers didn't used to be there. At least I never noticed them before either. And I looked. I used to just click on the reference and go to it. {edited} Well shoot now when I came back the new box is gone. Oh well.

    So tx to <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> and whoever is responsible for adding that feature. Even if "they" aren't owning up to LEX.

    <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> What <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15>?...am I missing something?
    Only time I have ever seen <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> was when I either used it at start of post or someone else has used it. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    Re: Show reference number of each post

    They're talking about the little yellow rectangle that shows up to the left of the post reference in new posts. There isn't any smilie tag that looks like it so they used <img src=/S/new.gif border=0 alt=new width=35 height=15> to explain.
