    I attempted to link to a particular post in the "Minnesota Transformers Sightings Thread" using the permalink provided at the top of post 10519 in the thread. The link generated for me was the following:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...a-transformers-sightings-421.html#post5212679

    The issue is that the HTML page I'm referring to ("87133-minnesota-transformers-sightings-421.html") is only correct when you have your "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" set to "25" as I do. The "correct" URL when using the forum default "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" is the following:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-transformers-sightings-1052.html#post5212679

    Obviously with 25 posts per page I don't have a 1052nd page to navigate to, and anyone using the default settings is navigated to the incorrect page when using my first link.

    Both URL's appear to contain a unique post ID ("#post5212679"). I was wondering if there was a different URL that would dynamically resolve to the correct page regardless of each users "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" setting (and thus be a true permalink), or do we not have a true permalink and are just SOL?

    Thanks!
