MJ Thanks for reply. Please try to be patient with me 'cause I'm not too sharp.
When I'm in a thread and scroll up and down to read the various posts, the address bar in my browser doesn't change. I thought that I might be able to click on the thread number in the upper right of the post box, and then use the post number in the newly opened window, but that seemed to work very erratically. In fact it usually seemed to link to a completely different thread.
Also when I said in my post I knew how to link to a thread not a post I didn't realize that I was using a [url] tag to do it. I guess I don't understand the syntax of either the [thread] tag or the [post] tag.
