Hi, I should be able to do this but I cannot create and post a link from one of my earlier threads to one of todays questions which I think would be helpful to him.

Please try opening the page you want in another tab and then copy the URL into the hyperlink in your "post" page.

Zak, "Please try opening the page you want in another tab"

I don't understand what you mean here, could you explain please. ie "another tab"

Hi bumpkin - just open a new tab in your browser and then find the page for the forum thread you are looking for. You will still have the current thread open where you are posting the reply. You could even open another instance of your browser; but do not close the current one you are viewing.

I hope you don't mind but I saw your request just now and have posted the link as you requested.

Hi Zak, thanks for posting the link for me, hope it helps him. What I can,t seem to grasp is this "globe" thing which would seem to be the easiest way if someone can tell me where it is.

OK, so this is an open thread. So I highlight the title. Next thing is click on the globe. There is no globe.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
