I was asked this earlier so thought i would post a quick guide.

Is it possible to place a link to another post in a different forum within the Home Brew Forum, e.g. from the Wine and Cider Discussion to a post in The Foodies forum.
Yes, the easiest way if on PC/Laptop is to right click on the post number in the top right corner of the post you want to use and choose copy link address then paste it into the new post.

If using a phone or tablet put your finger on the number and then choose copy link address from the options that pop up, paste this into the new post.

Or click on the 'share' icon and then the copy to clipboard one. Then paste into a post.

I realise now that you have to 'hover' over the share icon in a post and then click on 'copy to clipboard'. Then paste into a new post.
It generates this link Posting a link to another post.

Chippy's method also works anywhere, not just within the forum.

My method offers direct posting to social media and email.
