YAFR: Make "last post" a link to the comment itself Answered

Since the I'bles database knows which comment was the most recent in a given forum, how about making the "last post" phrase in "last post by XYZ" a link to that comment? WITHDRAWN 14 Nov 2008: See my comment below.

I think I need to withdraw this feature request. Unlike elsewhere on I'bles, it turns out that in the "last post by XYZ" notation, the username is a link to that post! That's not really intuitive (it should be a link to the member's profile), but that's how it is.

I discovered this by accident -- I wanted to get to a user's profile, and got their comment instead!

You can just delete the forum topic if you want.

. That doesn't work for me. It takes me to their profile.

So with this comment of yours (soon to be replaced with mine :-), if I go to Community, down at the bottom it lists the Feedback forum with your avatar and "last post by https://www.instructables.com/community/YAFR_Make_quotlast_postquot_a_link_to_the_co/?comments=all#CKS0045FNI3Y7S4 NachoMahma]". Your name there is just the link I've put here.

...Argh. On the individual Feedback forum, you're right that the name is the way it's "supposed to be," linking to your profile.

. Excellent idea! . Or at least highlight the most recent post(s).
