The problem is that i'm using it at office (local lan address) and at home (Public address with a route redirection).. so one link is not the solution, that's why I thought about something dynamic (this style #20).

We have the same scenario, but easiest way (and IMHO the best one) is to configure your local DNS server, so you can use the same URL from both office and "outside". We're using this and we're happy with that. It's also usefull for exaple if you want to paste ticket URL to someone other via ICQ/IM...

I'll try to check this with our administrator. Thanks for the tip.

This would work if the DNS name where the only issue. However port number and protocol may also not be uniform for all users.

having /forum/4 create a link would be one rather general solution. I would think that it would be easy to have [[forum:4]] be a link would be easy to add.

A topic id is actually a message id.

So, message#290 => Add link to a forum topic?.

You can also use relative links.

"my topic":/boards/1/topics/290 => my topic.

The simplest way is use:

message#1218
