Posting ID's

Dear pennymachines, is there any reason why when in a post, there is no URL ID showing in the address box on your browser. Reason being, it would be useful to be able to cut and paste a topic URL within a posts to send to interested people, as well as adding this to your favourites as a separate link. thanks.

Hi malcymal,

Yes I was aware of this - the result of my decision to build the site in frames - i.e. a frame on the left for navigation and one on the right for content. I should be able to get around it in the Forum (as I've done in the other areas) by tweaking the software a bit and re-coding all the Forum links.

I might have another go at it later, but for the time-being I've implemented a kludge that produces unique URLs that are not very elegant, but work: - this topic, for example, is now

The only bit you actually need is but the whole thing will work too.

Another way to get around the problem is to right click on a link you want to visit and Open Link in New Tab or Window (Firefox).
