    I wanted to check out a member's profile posts .... but I couldn't find a direct way to get to their profile posts.

    It's the same for every message and has been since XenForo 1.0.

    What about a link in all this white space ...

    Can this be returned to suggestions.
    To me it's not upload_2014-8-6_10-26-24.png .

    It's very hard to find the link.

    And there is lots of space to make a link.

    No one will think to click on the link, again, not explicit enough.

    The fact that @me and @Allan didn't know should indicate a need for a more formal link to the member's profile posts.

    When I click on the 16 minutes link ... it seems to do nothing really.

    On the forum home ... it takes you to the first message.

    I guess that's analogous.

    It's just not intuitive enough.
    There is lots of space here ... lots of room for a more formal link.
    No need to save space with unintuitiveness.

    I admit i was fumbling around looking for a direct link to the profile page yesterday. I wound up going the way of clicking on the username / opening the membercard / then clicking again on the username in the overlay, which finally brought me to the profile i was trying to get to in the first place..

    It adds a hash to the URL that is a direct link to the post. Posts do not contain their own page or own links, so no reload is necessary.

    Can this be moved back to suggestions @Brogan ?
    My suggestion is distinct to what is currently offered.
    Thank you in advance.

    That's the route I took.

    Perhaps having the username link go to profile wouldn't be a bad thing instead of it opening the membercard, since the avatar within the overlay opens the member card already.

    I would generally consider the link now to be sufficient. It's a pretty consistent approach across XenForo (at least in message-like content) and it's a common pattern in other web apps (Facebook).

    Seems like an easy fix.
    Oh well.

    I swear i clicked on everything but the time stamp... ive only been using XF from the beginning.. Some of my forum members have a hard time understanding "Upload a File" also includes image files.. lol getting them to click a date (with muted text no less) is going to prove futile.

    This is not a solution, innovate!

    That's quite enough.
