1) Notice that in the top right corner of each message there is a number like #23 in our case. That is the number of "that" message in "that" thread. In our case it's the 23rd message in that thread.

2) Right Click on that number and select “Copy Shortcut”


3) In your own message, right click and past the link where you want it.
4) Remember to add url tags around your link like the THREE parts Red in the example below
5) Then replace the "text for link goes here" with the phrase you want for the link
