"Viewtopic?"

Instead of emailing or messaging the Admins or Mods with technical support questions or comments about the site, we prefer you check here to see if someone else has had the same difficulty or has made the same suggestion. What you're after might have already been posted and addressed here or within the FAQ. If not, please post a detailed description of the problem/suggestion and someone from the HST team will address your needs shortly. If you can't login/post and are unable to reset your password on your own, you may contact us directly.

"Viewtopic?"

What's the syntax of the "viewtopic" code? Looks like a handy way to refer to somebody else's post...

BTW, is the "URL" button gone for good?

viewtopic is a known local pointer into the HST site. You simply open another browser window to the topic you wish to cross-post, copy the link, and just paste it back into your post in the original window. the HST bbcode makes it the short version. eg, I just copied the URL for this topic from another HST browser window and pasted here: viewtopic.php?f=2&p=45232#p45232" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; You can see it's handy-work by looking at the preview page of your post.

URL still works according to Eric, but the button returns when he chooses.
