It has been a while since a new feature has been introduced to the server so it's time to change things up. It's about time we further integrate the server with the website which is why we are introducing a new feature that will allow people to shortlink forum posts, threads and categories in chat.
Linking to a forum thread
Every forum thread has its own numerical ID at the end of the URL, for example the thread posted by @144 which suggested the shortlinking feature to be added to the server has this link https://creativefun.net/threads/shortlinking-to-forums-in-chat.52855/ with 52855 being the numerical ID of the thread but this would look very messy in chat. Typing ft:52855 in the chat will allow players to click on the phrase which will send them to the thread. The "ft" stands for forum thread and will only work when you want to link to a forum thread.
Linking to a specific forum post by a user is different.
Linking to a forum post
Click on the number on the bottom right side of a post to get the ID for a specific post. Typing fp:258742 in the chat will allow players to click on the phrase which will send them to the specific post.
