Link to first topic in Discussion

how can I link to the first Topic of a Discussion?

If I use the topic Link (date) it jumps to the last topic!

This is really annoying, because I would like to link to the BEGINNING of an Topic..

Is there a Solution to this?

I Also tried to use HTML Anchors in the first topic, but it will not convert correctly.

Using Vanilla 2.8 and the "WYSIWYG Editor" from  * @author Dane MacMillan

Thanks in advance... :+👍️

    Watch out for the "#latest" at the end of a link. That will always take you to the latest content that you have read. If you omit/delete that, theoretically you should get to the starting discussion, but if I try it now I see that it will take you to the top of the last page

    That could be "solved" by adding "/p1" but it doesn't feel like a solution...

    Yes, I know about the "#latest" on the End of the link... 😉

    But as you already tested, if you take the Link from the DATE of the first Topic, it will be WITHOUT the "#latest", as with all the Links of a Topic...

    The only topic link not working properly is the first one... 😲

    Thanks for the solution... its better than nothing... 😍👍️

    But I think this could be an error, isn`t it? 🙄

    I agree. Do you already have a GitHub account? If yes, go and create an issue. If not, that would be a reason to create one and help improving Vanilla 👍️

    Nono!! I didn`t use them because

    first I´m intimidated (aaall professionals there!! 😯😄)

    and second so that they take me serious!! 😄

    For the colorful expression of my feelings, I have THIS forum... hehe.... 😄😋🤡
