I might be missing something, but…

Would it be possible to allow links to posts? In some forum software there is a URL available in each and every post (“Link To This Post”) so that we can refer to individual posts. Currently it seem I can only find a link to an entire topic.

Thank you!

I see what Jason's asking for, though, I don't think that's it. In multi-paged topics sometimes you want to refer to a specific post, not the whole topic. I was under the impression that phpbb doesn't have a syntax for an individual post.

There's a little icon just to left of the date on each message, i.e. right before “Posted: Fri Apr 09, 2010 10:33 am”. I think that provides a link to the specific post, no?

Here's one to a random post in a two-page topic that is from Edward and says:
Plus you need to delete “$HFS/hsvg/lib*”.
