There must, surely, be a way for people who have the editing authority over a permathread to add a link (like a "blue clicky") which would enable people to click straight to another post within the permathread? Can anyone explain how to do it? When a permathread is very long then posts about the same issue can be very far apart and therefore may not be easily discovered by the casual browser.

<a href="#3729846">Geoff's first post in this thread</a>

The red is the address (where the link goes to) and the blue is the title. The black stuff needs to be there and doesn't change.

It's in the "Printer Friendly" link under the message.

Obvious, isn't it.

Also, if you go to where the names are under the title, so you can click on them and go to that post. Hover your mouse over it, and it's the last number in the address.

Jack's idea might work a lot better for you though.

Geoff, Jeri's method will take the reader to the message in question...if that message is showing in the thread. If you want to display one message alone, right-click the "printer-friendly" link under the message, and copy the printer-friendly link.
If you want to get fancy, you can delete the parts I've made bold below. Remember that if you have control of a PermaThread, you can correct your mistakes.

Can I point out that often it is easier to have both threads open at the same time. target=_blank will do that for the surfer. see below eg

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=157899&messages=1" target=_blank">Geoff's first post in this thread</a>

note the whole URL has to be referenced as per:

<a href="http://www.interestingwebsite.info" target=_blank">Another web page within or outwith Mudcat</a>

try it Geoff's first post in this thread
