new feature: Post counter with direct link

  1. You may have already noticed that we added a new feature, where each posting has a Post # in the upper right-hand corner of each posting. Example:

    What does it do? It numbers the posts in a thread - the first one has the number 1 written on it, the second 2 etc. This will accurately count the post number irrespective of the page you are on, and it helps orientation on long threads (and many of our threads are long).

    This may be a little confusing, but here I go....

    The Post # is also is also a hyperlink, when you click it, it will move that post to the top or center of the page and it will change the web address (URL) in your browser. If you wanted to reference that specific post, you can copy the new address (URL) and paste it in a post or an e-mail, when someone click on it it will take them directly to that post instead of having to search for the post.
    I hope that made sense.

    Anyway, I'd love to hear your feedback on the new option.

    Now if I can ever get my DSL installed I'll actually be able to get to the last post and check to see if it really works!

    Just when I think I have it figured out... things change... lol.. I think I may be too tired to think it through... but it sounds like you can reference it for other post remarks?

    I like all the new stuff Brian... you are always thinking and creating and I like that.... I love this BB and a day is not a good day unless I have my puter time and check the board...

    Okay.. now what does it mean by our name - or +.. ? I dont get it...

    I don't know if I've mentioned it before. Yes I do - that was my British humor and everybody would have thought how totally retarded I must be.

    This is THE most technologically advanced, feature-rich, easy to navigate BB I've ever seen.

    I haven't been everywhere but I've been around for a long time. I was looking at the internet when it was ARPAnet, and then who among us remembers USEnet? That was pretty much all BB's, wasn't it?

    Anyway, thanks and keep up the cool ideas!

    Love

    Dennie

    I must agree. My hubby is a hard core computer gamer (translation=I HATE QUAKE). Very into computers & junk, knows all the types of BB's, etc. (I swear, he wasn't a computer nerd when I married him )

    Anyhoo, he was lookin over my shoulder the other day... extremely impressed with my "little nursing place". Pretty cool set up we got here.

    Thank you Brian
