What are these links for?
« on: July 08, 2010, 09:00:15 AM »
In this forum, at the top of any post is the title/subject and to the left of the title is an icon.  Both of these are hyperlinks, but only back to the post itself.  "Click here to see what you are already seeing."  What are these links for?

This is in no way a criticism or complaint.  It's merely a curiosity.  I suppose it's a function of the BB software we're using, and not related specifically to OC.net, but they still don't make any sense.  Is there a different way to configure a discussion forum that would make these links useful or something?  Just curious.  And I guess I don't have enough to do...

I guess it is so you can copy links to specific posts and post them on facebook  ;D
Right klick -> Copy Shortcut (for decadent IE users)

Example:
"LOL look at this post on the crazy christian forum http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,28612.msg451399.html#msg451399;D
