Permalinks for forum posts

Description

Issue:

  • It is difficult to deep-link to a specific forum post. One needs to get the anchor name from the source code and construct the link manually, so non-programmers won't be able to use them at all ;)

Solution:

  • Display permalink in the header of each forum post, like this: "posted 2012/10/05 00:42 | Link" with tool tip on "Link"
  • Tool tip: "Direct link to this post"

Notes:

  • The anchors already exist in the source code and are used by the "Latest posts" box, so coding time for this one should be around 5 minutes

Actually you can just click on report to moderator and copy the link there :-) (but there is a post missing so you need to add that).

There is a problem, when the last content in the post is an image (that gets a style="float: left;" attached to it). While the css already has a clear:both in .clearfix:after this doesn't seem to work on Chrome.

Adding a clear: both in a style tag works.

seems not to work in IE8. I mean the layout is okay now. But the functionality doesn't what I expect. The link should bring be to the post instead it show always the top of the page.

The link works fine within Chrome. Does it work when you click on the green arrow in the overview?
