What does the 'permalink' option do?

Jump to solution

In the forum, next to a post, the drop down contains an option 'permalink'. 

What does that option do?

I have searched the forum for a description of what is does with no success. (I see that permalink shows up in some URLs)

This option provides you a link to that very specific post entry, not only the site

The link to this forum thread is

 https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Welcome-Join/What-does-the-permalink-option-do/m-p/924817

The link to a specific post:

 https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Welcome-Join/What-does-the-permalink-option-do/m-p/924862/highlight/true#M52543

To produce that link (and share for cross-reference), right-click on 'Permalink' from the drop-down menu to the right of the post, then choose 'copy link location'.

Or, simply click on it and copy the URL from your browser.

 

This feature is more useful for forum threads with lots of replies. Visitors from this link are guided directly to the relevant reply. Additionally this reply may be highlighted for them.

Thanks for your reply...

So, it looks like the standard stuff.
