    How do I insert one of those neat hyperlinks to a previous post? especially useful when wanting not to cross-post between forums.

    I find the easiest way is:
    Select the post when viewing the forum in Expanded view.
    Grab the full URL from the address bar.
    use the <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/url2.gif> button to insert [ url=link ]description[ /url ]
    Replace link with the URL, replace description with something convenient like 'Post 18904'
    and you should get something like:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=lounge&Number=18904&page=0& view=expanded&sb=5&part=1&vc=1>Post 18904</A>

    Chris,

    First navigate to the page you want to point to. Copy the url.

    Go to where you want to post from.

    In your message, put in url tags, and paste the url like this:
    [ url=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=lounge&Number=18904&pag e=0&view=expanded&sb=5 ] Link back to my post [ /url ]

    I've put in spaces to show the markup, but without spaces, the line above looks like this:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=lounge&Number=18904&pag e=0&view=expanded&sb=5> Link back to my post</A>

    Now here's a test. How would you mark this reference up:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/w3thelp/help_17.html>Markup tags</A>
