    links in lounge posts

    I would like to make a link in a post to an existing post for another user to follow. How can that be done in this message box?
    thank you

    Re: links in lounge posts

    There are two ways to make a link to another post; both can be created using the 1-Click TagPanel that you can call up when you're creating or editing a post or reply, or can be typed in by hand.

    The easiest form (caption 1Post in the TagPanel) displays the post number: <!t>[post#=200000]<!/t> will result in <post#=200000>post 200000</post#>.

    The other form (caption 2Post in the TagPanel) displays a description that you specify: <!t>[post=an interesting post,200000]<!/t> will result in <!post=an interesting post,200000>an interesting post<!/post> - it displays the description and links to the post number in the second part (you will see this number in the status bar of your browser if you hover the mouse over the link)

    Note: the number 200000 was taken just as an illustration.

    Completely off-topic: how about the attached picture as user pic? The version you are using now is distorted. If you want to use the modified version, right click it and save it to your hard disk, then upload it as your user pic.

    Edited:
    The advice below, while valid, is no longer necessary, since as of about March 4, 2003, Lounge Admin has added the new <!t>[help=##] tags, such as <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>. Thanks, Admin!


    For future reference, including my future reference, Lounge Help Index Items can be addressed thus:
    <!t>Text<!t>

    where <markup> is substituted with the required index title, which results in
    Text

    I haven't seen this specifically addressed anywhere before, so I thought that I'd mention it.
