If you want to link to another thread, copy and paste the URL. For example:

http://www.dailysudoku.com/sudoku/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4242&sid=914671c80379a978a8422951e19e36ed

You can delete the junk at the end, so you only need

http://www.dailysudoku.com/sudoku/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4242

This will take you to the thread.

If you want to link to a particular message, add the string &start=?? to the URL, where ?? is the message number. For example

http://www.dailysudoku.com/sudoku/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4242&start=17

The only way I know is to count the messages in the thread and add the &start=?? by hand.

There is also an &down parameter. I do not know what it does.

The top line of each post has a little icon, here shown by "<Post>".

It is a link to the specific message.

Building on what Wapati noted:

"Posted: Wed Mar 10, 2010 3:54 pm Post subject: "

The above line appears at the top of a message. To the left of the word "Posted" is an icon which looks like a piece of paper with the upper right corner folded. Click that icon. What you see on your screen won't change but a change will be made in the URL. Linking to that changed URL will take you to the specific message.

Good observation Wapati. I had never paid any attention to that icon or knew what it was.
