    I don't know if vBulletin allows this, but it would be really nice if, when quoting a post, a link to that post would be automatically generated as a hyperlink, so that instead of, say, this:

    the username would be a hyperlink to the original post, something like this:
    Code:
    [font=Arial][size=2]

    Actually, it might be more understandable if the link could be added to the "posted", like:
    Code:
    [font=Arial][size=2]

    Would this be possible? It would make it a lot easier to find the post to which the current post refers - often useful in long threads.

    Hmmmmmmmm.....*maybe*, vB supports custom tags, I'm not sure if it'll stretch to this extent.....I'll have a play on my own, dead (crys) forums.....

    edit: OK, as far as I can see there is no way to edit the function of the built in BB codes.
