    Links to posts in Private

    How come (it seems) that the TagPanel doesn't offer the "Post" links when you are sending a private message?

    An admin will be able to confirm this, but I believe the tagpanel used for Private Messages (PMs), is different than that for a standard message or reply to a forum.

    Saying this however, typing in the tags (eg. <!t>[Post: 500,000]<!/t> ) as normally expected.

    Re: Links to posts in Private

    The TagPanel that is available when you compose a private message is a reduced combination of the TagPanel you see when you compose or edit a post and the Smilies panel. It's kind of a relic from the past: it hasn't been updated to include newer tags.

    You can easily include a link to a post:

    Method 1:
    - Select the post number in the header of a post (including the square brackets) with your mouse, for example <code><!t>[Post: 608,017]</code>.
    - Press Ctrl+C to copy the text to the clipboard.
    - In your PM, press Ctrl+V to paste the text.

    Method 2:
    - Copy, remember or write down the post number.
    - In your PM, type <code><!t>[Post#=</code>
    - Type or paste the post number (without a comma).
    - Type a closing bracket <code>]</code>
    - It should now look like <code><!t>[Post#=608017]</code>

    (There is another Post tag, but I'll skip that one here)

    Hans/Chris:

    OK, thanks...

    Hans: a third way? Why? Just happens to work?

    OK, OK. The third method (used by Officespacer in his reply) is <code><!t>[Post=Links to posts in Private,608017]</code> resulting in <!post=Links to posts in Private,608017>Links to posts in Private<!/post>.
    After Post= you specify the text to be displayed, then a comma followed by the post number.

    Okay, here's one more!! See Alan Miller's star post and following: Pulling URLs. (That's not Lounge specific, of course, but in some cases the additional information is helpful to know what the link is about.)
