Hi guys, thanks for the forum.

It looks like the links in the new post notification emails link to the end of the thread, and not the post they are referencing.

Is that right?

A question really, not a complaint.

That is correct.

Thanks for the reply.

That's probably easily fixed if you have a coder handy. It should be just a matter of finding the script generating that message, and editing the link to include the post number.

Or not, just a thought...

I turned off those notifications long ago, honestly. I think after you've got hundreds of posts the emails become too tedious.

I do get emails when certain forum sections have new threads, which is handy as a supermod. Smile

Ok, I tested to make sure it's possible to link to a particular post. That works fine. So the only problem is in the script that sends the new post notices. The link just needs to be edited to include the post number. Like this:

The guys who wrote this software could likely fix this in about 10 seconds. Not sure why they haven't already.

Deep Thought is our guy for that.

I'll leave this for him to explain why it can or cannot be done.
