This still happens @jonp  (eg: 

(Which is linking to https://forums.lime-technology.com/topic/60204-cant-unmount-disks-due-to-rsync-resolved/)

 

 

I've now switched to switching to displaying links instead on my posts, but most users don't.  The problem is however intermittent.  Some posts are correct, others are wrong.

@jonp  Here's the problem.

 

Posts that work:  ones that directly reference a particular message within a post:

Posts that don't display correctly are ones that refer to the OP, without referencing a comment number (which should be perfectly correct, since the URL of the OP by default doesn't include the comment number

@everyone   If you want to refer to a particular thread, instead of grabbing the default URL, click the  "Posted 7 hours ago" of the OP which will then give the full URL for the lead post.  PITA  >:(

It also means that posts, info threads, and faq's that link back to another thread do not work and need to be manually fixed. All. Of. Them.

Fix the problem in the back end which fixes the entire board.

Shameless bump @jonp  Hard to help people when they reference a thread and we can't tell what they're referencing.

Eric is out of the office until the middle of the week. There is an IPS update that I want him to apply after we make one more backup of the forums. If that update doesn't resolve the issue, we will once again escalate with IPS.
