Show an individual post while still showing all other posts

I know you can highlight a single post in EAB (for example: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=607612&postcount=1) but it's a pain in if you then want to continue reading on the thread from there.

Is there any way that the individual post number links (at the top right of each post) can link to that specific post within the thread instead of a single post on it's own?

Second that One way to do it, is from the user statistics and click from there (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=607612#post607612). Yet it's a tad hard to find the absolute post number to do that manully

What a great question. I've been caught out by this a few times, although I have discovered that each page contains 40 posts, so it's quite easy to find which page the post will belong on.

Ah yes, yes it does.

Good stuff.

Although, I would prefer the second view as default, I never want to view a post on its own. But hey, that's me

Well, I'll be............ Now it appears to be a rather silly question.

Who asked it anyway

Thanks! That's a godsend for Guess The Screenshot when I start a new thread - I always check the post number and type the link manually so you can read the rest of the thread too

Heh, I actually thought that was common knowledge, I always use it when linking to posts on IRC (and it's actually rather odd that you never noticed that, KG).

However, if it's possible to change the default behavior, I'd actually be in favor of it being changed. Not that the extra click is that much extra effort, but yeah, you know...
