Does anyone know how to create links to sections in the same post in BBCode?

Thanks.

Instead of links, why not use the quote feature? Click on quote in the post you want to reference and it will be copied into the posting window. You can remove any section you don't want before you submit. You can also highlight the portion you want to reference and do a copy/paste. Then type (quote) before that section and at the end type (/quote). Instead of the () use []

The quote feature doesn't work in that way. What I want to do is link to sections in the same post. In order for the reader to click on the section they want to view. Instead of having to scroll down to that section.

I guess I'm not following you. You want to make a post and then provide links within that post to certain areas within that post? Seems like you're thinking of making a very large post.

If this works you should be able to click the quote that will take you to the source.

Partial success. It doesn't include the full quote as the BBcode reduces it to what you see.

I did a search of your posts that included the word bottle and clicked on one to your post. I copied the new open url which directed it to your single post. There is probably a smarter way to do it but I do not know forum posting format that well.

As an alternative this would do in a pinch...

If I understand Mantel, he wants to link within the same post, not to another post.
