Rodeo's post10013 reports the same behaviour as mine.
we both have the page setting the same
"Show 50 Posts Per Page"
Could we both have a Browser that has the same fault?

IE, Chrome, Fox, just checked the linking. No problems, straight to post #9980.

I changed that number on mine and it still links correctly.

Salas, have you read my post #18 in this thread? It explains clearly the circumstances under which problems will occur and the steps necessary to correct it (short version: URLs shouldn't have page numbers in them because the page number depends on a user's preference setting).

Are there any admins paying attention to this thread anyway? Presumably it's only admins who'd be able to make fixes? I PMed Jason ages ago and got no response.

If the number immediately preceding .html in the above links (the page number) is removed, both URLs lead to the same post, regardless of web-browser and post-per-page settings. It would be good therefore if the forum's automatic link-parser (enabled by default), when parsing URLs and changing them to proper links when a user submits their post, would remove the page number from URLs before turning them into links.
Good summary. I will look into it.
