#1 post numbering

Post by ed »

I may have asked this before, if so I've forgotten the answer...If I haven't then...

Is there any chance of applying the code to introduce the post number on the top of a post. I ask because it makes it a whole heap easier to reference posts from the past.

I was going to send an email but then thought that others may have a view..

Do you have a reference?
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

here's one:

it's not a deal breaker because it's always been possible to reference an individual post from the url of the top of the page. You just have to count the number of posts from the top of the page to the post you are interested in and adjust the reference in the url....

it's just easier if you have a post number and you want to reference a post in the same thread you are posting in.
