Nope, that didn't work.

Next question is: can anyone else see the post titles?  ??? (And, presumably, are they indeed hyperlinks to the post?)

Back to my account settings to look around...


Oh, right, and thanks for the dice roller being fixed!!  :notworthy:  :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :party: :party: :party: I ran a confirming test and saw the result, but got absent-minded on trying to puzzle out the next thing.

The next thing is a completely separate issue. And I don't get paid to work weekends ...or weekdays ;)

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

No rush; the earliest they might decide to migrate is next week. And for functionality, in the worst case scenario I can quote a small amount as a workaround and generate a link back to the prior post that way. Mainly it would be handy for providing a quick way for players to refer to the snapshot posts for convenience.

I will look into the post link issue later tonight

I'll have a scotch and see what that does.

It can't hurt anything ;)

there is a workaround, but it's not an easy one


I've pinged someone for help so that Mirth doesn't have to parse thru it, but I don't have a short answer at the moment

Seems like the easiest workaround is to generate a quote from the target post (perhaps in the post immediately afterward), and right-click that address.

For example, I got this link from your quote, pointing back to my post. https://www.armchairdragoons.com/forum/index.php?topic=627.msg10337#msg10337

That is the workaround I had in mind.  But there's gotta be a better way to do it.  This theme does so many other things so well (especially the mobile version) that I can't believe there's not an easier way to make this happen

Eh, I can make it work, so I'm happy enough.

Still, I don't know why the code for doing the normal thing hasn't been included in the theme (apparently). Can anyone else see post subjects?!

I realized a day or two ago, btw, that while I can see the thread subject title, I still can't see (so can't click on) the post subject title that started the thread. (I thought I could, but I was misremembering.)

After some discussion, the Players have voted that the easiest solution will also be the best, namely that I just make our dice rolls and chit pulls at TTS, 'behind the GM screen' in effect.

Consequently, we won't be moving the game to a thread here at Armchair Dragoon, though I was hoping to set up for that. But I can appreciate not wanting to change the wagon team halfway across the river!

Thanks to Brant and Mirth for their help and encouragement. I have some plans for offering up a quite different forum game (processed in TTS) here at ArDrag later, although I need to put some projects to bed first. Probably before the Grogpublic is done though! More on this later in another thread, of course, when I get around to it.  ;D
