    The title pretty much says it all. I noticed that the posts in the Dev Feed forum made after February no longer contain a link to take you to the original of the dev's post so that you can read the posts that prompted the dev's post.

    Would it be possible to bring back this extra bit of information? I doubt that I'm the only person who likes to read the dev posts in their original context, rather than pulled out and isolated so you really don't know what else was being discussed at the time.

    Thanks!

    The functionality was lost when we upgraded everything. We have to hire a developer to make a new add-on, but only when we have the resources available to do so. It's on the wish list.

    I'll see if I can find a way to 'fudge' it.

    This little up-arrow (shown in the below picture) will take you back to the quoted post in the original thread.

    Most Dev posts are in response to someone else, so it should cover most of the Dev Feed posts.

    Wow. Good call, @Barry Gibb.

    Will keep it on the wish list, but good work around I'd never have noticed.

    :) thanks Barry, I was aware of that, I've added links back to the posts since there isn't always a quote.
