Dumb Question: What does the link button do?
Not a dumb question at all. What it does is change the URL at the top of the page to the specific address of the post that you were on when you hit link. That way you can direct people to the exact info in a thread you want to share. I usually just cut and paste it in where needed.
Uh oh, still confused. So if I hit link on my post above it would change the URL to this page no? Isn't it already on this page? Oooh! I think I just got it. It directs them to the specific post on the page? So you click it, copy that link at the top and then paste it for someone else to see your exact post
