Question Thread Posting within a Post?

I would like to know how to post a note to a thread or threads as the case may be. Such as leave feeback on this thread if you don't feedback somwhere else in the place. Or direct other to the related thread or post if you don't want to keep re posting? Yes I have seen it her but don't how to add it.

Ginny, I'm completely baffled as to what you're asking.

Can I make a stab? Are you asking how you would add something new to your own post rather than keep posting new posts all the time? After you make a post there is a box at the bottom (right I believe) that says "Edit". Click on that and a box similar to the one you would make the original post in will come up. You can (I believe) do that as many times as needed to add more info to that particular post.

As far as directing others to a related thread, I've never been good at that. I believe you can copy the thread info in the "address" line on your computer and paste that into your post, which others could click on to follow where you wanted them to "look". But, I'm sure others have much easier methods.

Does this make any sense or help at all?!


And, having just posted, I've now "hit" the Edit button, and added this post-script. Once you do that, simply hit the "Save" button and your 'edited' post will now appear.

Problem is solved here is the link to http://forums.srellim.org/showthread.php?t=5136 the one that has The Three Cats on Bed. Along a bit of background in our furry friends.

How do you add the Post number or numbers as the case may be?

I'm just thinking Ginny might mean the little numbers on the upper right hand corner when one's replied to a thread, above right as oppose to bottom right of replies and in the main menu when one sees the replies/viewcounts on the right side on main menu. Is that what you mean Ginny?

So many possibilities, so little time to find out...............

Or maybe she means (hyper)linking to another thread... or even directly to a specific post within another thread...

Shortcut method for doing that. Right-click on the post number, then click copy shortcut. Paste what you just copied into your post and hit send. This is Ginny's original post as example: http://forums.srellim.org/showpost.p...64&postcount=1

Good explanation, Tresa!

One further point, the postcount is given on every post, in the upper right corner. If you look you'll see that this is post #9 and Tresa's was #8.
