    Actually, I see what I think you really mean. I'm talking about accessing a permalink that you can bookmark in your browser or whatever tool you use to keep links to interesting things. You're talking about bookmarking within coderanch? Yes I believe that would be a feature request.

    On the desktop view there's a teeny folder icon next to the "posted 1 hour ago" that is a link to the post within the topic.

    It's not super obvious, but it's there.
