Linking to a specific discussion post
You can get the link for a specifc post, by right clicking the # character at the beginning of a post, and selecting 'Copy Link Location' or similar. You can then use this in [url=...]thread[/url] tags.
Grid references in the text are identified and linked to the browse page.
To stop text looking like a grid reference being converted, either use lowercase or prefix with a !. For example !B4567 won't be linked but B4567 would, the ! mark is not shown on the final page.
Drive along the !B4567 road. shows as Drive along the B4567 road.
