I've seen this done before but can't figure it out.

How does one add a link in the Notes section of the MW, to the PL Notes posted in the project forum? It is sometimes very hard, on a long project spanning several months, to find those PL Notes several weeks later. Any help much appreciated.

See the little paper icon next to a post's date stamp? That's a link directly to the post.

I have this saved in my typing macro program: PL notes <a href="" target="_blank">HERE</a>

Right click on the paper icon of the post you want, click "copy link" (or something like that), then paste that between the two "" marks. Such as:

PL notes <a href="viewtopic.php?p=1385490#p1385490" target="_blank">HERE</a>

I also think it works for those scared of html to put the page number of the forum that the PL notes are on: "PL notes page 9". It doesn't get you to the exact post, but it gets you close. :)

Thanks, Tricia. I knew it was something simple. Now, what is a "typing macro program"? :?

Nothing important. A small program I have that I have that types stuff at the click of a button.

There are also free browser addins to do this. I used mywords for Firefox and more recently prokeys in Chrome.
