How to quote a post from a locked or closed thread

Hi you guys--

I've just discovered how to quote a post from a closed or locked thread. It's really simple and useful for those who may want to continue a discussion from a previous thread:

Here's how it goes:
1. Go to the thread from which you want to quote something. In this case I chose to quote something from the Polls thread in the Forum Support and Feedback subforum:

2. On the post you want to quote, click on the post number link, the one before the "Report Post" link,

so that the post will open in a new window:

3. On the address bar, highlight the five or six numbers after the last slash and before the dash and post number:

Press CTRL+C or right click then select Copy.

4. On the Quick Reply or Post Reply function, type the following:

for example:

and it will appear like this:

and there you go!

this tactic also works with active, open threads.

i hope you guys get this.

Thanks for the information, RhapsodyBrat! That'll be very useful for someone who wants to quote a post from a previous current-events thread after a new one is opened.

Thanks Elspeth! It took a lot of tinkering, but it's worth it.
