I was in a thread trying to cross-link to another thread, and it doesn't seem to be working anymore. For example:

[thread=28731842]Secret Discussion[/thread]

(For me, it shows the whole tag: [thread=28731842]Secret Discussion[/thread], not a link to the thread.

That's because that ID isn't assigned to a thread yet. It's about 15x too high. Instead, it's the ID of an individual post, which you can link to using the article tag: [article=28731842][/article] Secret Discussions

Ah, ok, that's the problem then! I guess I assumed the number before the # was the thread, but I see it's not. Here's a thread link:

Moved from BGG Bugs to BGG Help and How-To

All's well that ends well.
