I know that each post in a thread has a unique identifier that you can add to the thread address to get the page to jump straight to that post when linking to it (like when you get an email notice about new post on a thread you're following) but how do I find out what that number is? Instead of posting pictures in multiple threads that are relevant I'd like to just link to the post in one thread that has the pictures from the other threads and I'd really like the link to put people right at the post with the pictures, not the first post in the thread.

At the top of each post is an image that looks like this , followed by something that says something like 'posted three minutes ago' or whatever.

Right click on the and choose 'copy link location'.

Haha, I looked all over the pages but it never occurred to me that that little icon was a link, I must have never moused over it...

Thanks Burra!
