You have expressed an interest in saving threads for future access. Here is the direct link to the first post in this particular thread:https://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=38032&p=271257#p271257
Here is another post link that might be of interest:http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=53157&p=420069#p420069
For your information, there are several ways for registered users to save thread links for future use. One way is to make use of the Bookmarks Folder in your User Control Panel. (Note: You have to be logged into your account for this to work. If you are just a 'lurker' or a 'browser' here, it won't work because you won't have a User Control Panel with the relevant menu items.)
How do I bookmark a specific topic?
You can bookmark a specific topic
by clicking the appropriate link in the “Topic tools” menu, which is conveniently located near the top and bottom of of the topic that you are currently viewing (scroll to the very first or very last post in the thread to see this menu). This menu is the one with the tool (wrench) icon. Once you select this drop-down "Topic tools" menu, you can then select the second option ( "Bookmark topic" ) and this will cause a link to the current topic
(thread) to be saved in your Bookmarks folder
Your Bookmarks folder
is located in the Manage Bookmarks link in your User Control Panel: http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/ucp.php?i=ucp_main&mode=bookmarks
Whenever you access this link you will see all of the topic
bookmarks that you have created in the past.
NOTE: The bookmark described above is a Topic Bookmark
(i.e., a Thread Bookmark). This kind of bookmark will link to the first post (or the last post) of the thread. It does not link specifically to any particular post within the thread itself. If your objective is to create a link that will open one very specific post, then you have to use a different kind of bookmark -- a Post Bookmark
