How do I reference a single post?

Hi - I've seen this done but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it myself...

I've found a single post I'd like to link to in another post (all on MR).

How can I do that?

Right click on the post number in the top right hand corner of the post and use Copy Link.

Just find the post you want, and either copy the URL and paste it into the new post or press the quote button on that post and copy the contents, cancel the post and go to the new one you want to make and post it all in there.

Or do what OllyW said.

Is that what you are looking for?

Let me try what OllyW posted - SG, since I'm using search to find the post, the URL seems ephemeral.

Update: OllyW's fix was perfect. I had no idea the post number could be clicked on...
