  • Post (or reply) number in top right corner of post (reply)

    vBulletin 5.x.x. Cloud
    I do not see a post number in the top right corner of each post (reply) to a thread. We had than in vBulletin 3.7, I recall seeing that since moving to v5 Cloud, and I see it in this forum, but not on my site.
    Where is the switch setting to turn this on and off?

    There is no setting.

    I see the post URLs in the upper right corner of each post on your site. From the main page, I clicked on Metal Working, then selected the topic titled Heat Treating/Oven with eight total posts. Each post is numbered and provides a direct link to that post when that number is clicked on.

    What is the link where you're not seeing this?

      Wayne: Thank you for responding.

      New detail of the behavior noted!
      I see the post numbers if I am viewing as an unregistered guest, or logged in an a regular registered user, or logged in as Administrator. But If I am logged in using my usual moniker "Mondo" which has full administrator authority the numbers no longer appear. So, investigating further...

      I found the switch!

      User Settings, Account
      Conversation Detail Options
      Display mode
      Latest Activity

      If set to "Latest Activity" the numbers do not show. If set to "Posts" the numbers will show.

      Interesting behavior, I do not know if this is FAD (Functions As Designed) or if it is a bug.

      For the purposes of this discussion I consider the issue resolved.
      Thank You!
