    Is there a way to make a link to a specific comment in the middle of a long thread on a discussion topic?

    There is one such that I would like to call to the attention of HP staff as a suggestion, for I believe the writer hit the nail on the head vis-a-vis traffic issues, but I doubt that staff would care to wade through the entire thread to find it....

    Or--should I just copy/paste and credit it to the person who had the idea, on the suggestions forum???

      I don't think there is, Liz. You can always include the link to the forum in your email to HP, then copy/paste the particular comment (and who posted it) in the body of your text.

      click on the "more" button beneath the comment and click "permalink." that gives you the url of the comment, not the entire thread.

        Oh, awesome!  Thanks for that info, calculus-geometry!

        I always wondered what that "permalink" meant, and I stayed away from clicking it, because I thought it might make "whatever" a permanent link..that's what it sounds like..and as such, would be reserved to administrative use.
        So, my next "logical" conclusion was that it either would not work if someone other than admin. clicked it, or that I would get in trouble for doing so.

          lol    Years ago I clicked on it, thinking it was one thing (or "whatever"); but then the looks of what showed up scared me (too).  It did look like something that any-old-body should be staying away from - or at least anyone who wasn't out to make some kind of trouble.    Like you, I never bothered to further investigate it.   (Having stayed away from it for years now, maybe it's not quite as scary looking, or else more scary looking -  or the same as ever.  I wouldn't know., of course......because I still have no plans of clicking on it.    lol   ) Whatever showed up that one time was just REALLY scary looking.   lol   (I wonder how mamy other people are afraid of "permalink".    smile  )

            LOL, Lisa!
              It would seem that those in charge of naming functions could stand some lessons in word choices...  ;-)
