Is there a method to convert an old BB code post # to a link?
Was that even possible before?
See example below from a post written Dec, 2010
The BB code in "old" TechSpot supported syntax. In above example, It generated a hyperlink link to the thread "How to recover your folders/files when Windows won’t boot" (and I now want to know that hyperlink)
"New" TechSpot doesn't support BB code . Is there currently a way to translate the old BB code post # to a URL to the post it represents?
p.s. That old BB code syntax is still "sprinkled" through many of my old posts. That's what I get for trying to make my old BB code text "succinct"
Yes. Before, if you appended #post No to the thread link, it would take you directly to the post itself, which is useful in the case of long threads. Example: The link to your quoted post would be
Now, it takes you to the thread, but not to the particular post.
Pointing to a particular post does work, LookinAround is talking about a specific bbcode that made linking to posts easier by using a unique ID. Xenforo doesn't have that functionality, I will "look around" for a modification that provides the same functionality.
OK, I got the two functions mixed up because I had noticed that pointing to a particular post doesn't work now, at least not with my Opera. Are you sure it works?
Thanks Julio. It's a "nice to have" but certainly not a priority. To all of you at TechSpot: Thanks for all the good work!

No problem LA, always a pleasure to receive your feedback.
Thanks, I got it now, I’ve worked out what you’ve done. It’s different from before, but once you know how to do it, it’s easy.
My (off topic) question has been answered, I just hope other members know how to do it too.
And it's working now
