nice...

Question How to insert a reference to a thread into a post?

Well, I'm ready to ask my first question, having searched for an existing answer. I found a thread that almost answers it, but none of the solutions worked for me. I want to mention in my post that I found that one, but it seems to me that the best way would be to point to it directly instead of saying "thread titled X in forum Y"; so how would I insert that reference? I think maybe what you tell me ought to be part of "How to Ask a Question".

Just copy-paste the link of the thread, e.g. for this thread, the link would be

Welcome to LQ,

When you are editing your post, you can select Advanced Edit mode and in there you will see some of the typical widgets for controlling text or also adding links and files.

You'll see the paperclip icon to allow you to add a file. Note that this capability is not available for all forums, for instance "this" forum and I'd suspect some of the open discussion forums as well. But in a technical forum and a technical question, you can add a file.

The widget will bring up a new window to allow you to attach a file, it's a bit unusual to work with, and there are limits to the total size of files you can attach. Therefore some people use common image sites and provide a link to their photos or images.

LOL It's "How to ask a question" not where you should. Try finding, "how to search" first?!. ;D
