    Recommended post should link to the post that is recommended and not the thread


    Save having to read all the other crap in the thread to find it.

    Thanks.

    Clicking on the recommended posts link gives you all the recommended posts. There is no need to go to the thread to read the post!

    Underneath the recommended post is a link to the thread that the recommended post was made in.

    And that's the problem. If I use that link, it's to see the context. If the recommended post was made in a thread that is 521 pages long, and the post was made on page 507, it's not very helpful to be sent to page 1. And you can't even easily jump to the last post in the thread while you are in there; that only works from the thread list.

    As long as we're at it, it would make sense to apply the same fix to the 'X's public forum posts" function on the user profile screen.

    That will have to click a lot then.

    I think this is an easy fix for Russ et al.
    The right page should be linked to, not only the thread.
    Agree.

    Amazingly enough, this feature should be for Alerted Posts also, just like recs and user's public posts.

    I throw you a rec.

    Good idea.
    same for all the other 'lists' of posts - a post link should link to the post.

    If not possible, perhaps it should be changed to "recommended threads"

    or "Recommended Posts that Jump to Threads that You Can Sort Through to Find the Context of why the Post was Recommended"
    Just a thought.

    Or maybe it could be changed so that the link goes to the forum rather than the thread, and then it could be called "Recommended Posts that Jump to the Forum that You Can Sort Through to Find the Context of why the Post was Recommended". After all, sometimes there are cross-thread references that you wouldn't understand by reading just the thread it was posted in. Actually there may sometimes be cross-forum references, too...

    Clicking the thread title when viewing the list of recommended posts will now take you directly to the post.
