    Bookmarking & Remote linking

    You can do 'bookmark' or 'add to favorites' as usual. But sometimes you'll find the URL too complicated. This is not very nice looking if you want to link it from your website. Here are some shortcuts:

    Links to Topics

    Let's say you are viewing a topic. In the 'Address', you'll see something like

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/viewtopic.php?t=161
    Look for "t=161". Take this number and form a URL

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/t161.html
    This will link to your topic.

    Links to Forums

    When you are viewing a forum, you'll see the 'Address' as something like

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/viewforum.php?f=5
    Look for 'f=5', take the number and form a URL

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/f5.html
    That's it.

    Links to Specific posts

    You can also link to specific posts! But finding the post id is slightly different. Let's say you want to link to a very good post. At the very start of the post you'll see a small document icon (just before 'Posted'), click this icon. Now in the 'Address' you'll see something like

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/posting.php?p=12065#12065
    Look for 'p=12065' (ignore the number after '#'), use the number as before to form

    Code:
    http://forumhub.lunarpages.com/hub/p12065.html
    You are done.

    Creating Master Page of a Topic

    A simple way is to use the 'linking to posts' tip above. Identify all posts that you want to be part of the master page. Form URL's to each of these posts using the above method. Arrange these URL's, as appropriate, and create a home page. A master page is ready!

    Finding old posts by a specific poster

    All posts migrated from the old site go under the name 'Oldposts', and it seems impossible to find the posts by a specific poster. Here's a tip to find them:

    1. Click 'Search' (scroll up to the top of the page to see it)

    2. Fill up the search form as below:

    a. Search Keywords -> enter the poster name
    b. Select 'search for all terms'
    c. Search for author -> Oldposts
    d. Forum -> select a forum of your choice
    e. Category -> All
    f. Display results as -> Select 'posts'
    g. Search previous -> select 'Search topic title and message text'

    3. Click Search button.

    RR,

    1. I remember u posted somewhere else to pick the exact post by right clicking the papermark of the post and copy shortcut and the link would direct to that particular post.

    Can u do something similar to the search option. when we search for a particular post containing a word ..the whole thread's first page appears..again we need to go thru the whole thread..instead can we get those "posts" containing a search word?

    2. Instead of listing the pages as a link 1, 2, 3........23, 24, 25, can u make that too as a dropdown list where we can choose the exact page.. Or at least as in the page where geno directed...Now in the current link if need to go to page12, either i need to start from 3 going forward one by one or from 23 coming backward one by one...

    Love,

    Cindy.

    Hi cindy,
    For (1), In the search form you can choose 'search by posts' (this option is at the bottom left). Then you will get the specific posts.
    I'll see if (2) is possible.
