Is there an easy way to get the permalink for LES comments?
Lots of stuff said here on LES strikes me as interesting and valuable. So I want to keep a list of notes, quotes, and permalinks.
Taking as an example a random a comment by @vyas, since whatever @vyas says always is automagically interesting, please consider this permalink: https://talk.lowendspirit.com/discussion/comment/30632/#Comment_30632. This example permalink seems to work here in that at the top of the rendered page there appears approximately the beginning of the comment where @vuas says, pithily, "I found most tools to be highly subjective."
I got the example permalink by looking at the source code for the thread containing the example comment. The link for the thread (at page 6) seems to be: https://talk.lowendspirit.com/discussion/1068/lowendspirit-com-is-live/p6 .
Lines 563 and 564 of the source code for the thread link seem to say something like:
<span class="MItem DateCreated"> <a href="/discussion/comment/30632/#Comment_30632" class="Permalink" name="Item_159" rel="nofollow"><time title="June 13, 2020 7:23AM" datetime="2020-06-13T14:23:53+00:00">June 13</time></a> </span>
I took "https://talk.lowendspirit.com" and added "/discussion/comment/30632/#Comment_30632".
An alternate method of getting the permalink in Chrome browser on a Chromebook might be: hover the mouse above the Quote link at the bottom left of the comment, right click, and select "Copy link address." The link is https://talk.lowendspirit.com/post/quote/1068/Comment_30632 . So I guess one might take a base of "https://talk.lowendspirit.com/discussion/comment/XXXX/#Comment_XXXXX" And then substitute "30632" for both occurrences of "XXXXX". I guess this might avoid all the fun of looking at the source code.
But, there has to be an easier way to get the permalink, right? Some really, really simple way? Click here, there? Right click here, there? Link automatically copied to clipboard buffer?
If there's no super easy way to get a permalink, would the methods I mentioned work throughout LES? Even in, say, the Cest Pit? I suppose I ought to go look at the source there, but diving into that particular page's source seems asking a lot. . . .
Hope everyone's enjoying a great day! Thanks!
