How to point someone at a specific page or record profile in FamilySearch
One of my pet peeves -- is when I get an email or FS Message - with someone interested in something I uploaded to Family Tree (usually FS Memories) --- and yet all so often they dont even mention the name - let alone the PID or other identifying information. of the person they are referring to -- or the web address of the page.
as FS etiquette - when you send a message out to another FS user in ref to something you saw in FS - be sure and include the URL (web address) so they can with a single click - go exactly to the place you are referencing.

Just a safety measure, I try and reference the PID in the message itself.0
Copying and Pasting URL's - click this link (SKIP the ad)0
Ive noticed that there appears to be a bug that when you do try to contact a submitter of info to FS - that it used to include a LINK in the message to what was being referenced.
BUT In recent months - this link seems to be totally missing
so that messaging a submitter of info - ends up in both people being totally confused what is being referenced.
I have had no less than like 40-50 message across the last month - of users trying to contact me about info that I uploaded - but the FS message - that would normally have the link to the person or the memory item - is missing so that both the recipient and later the sender of the message - get all confused about what is being referenced.
PLEASE fix this bug . . .0

I know this bug has been reported in the past, but I have not encountered it recently. I just checked some recent messages and the links were there and took me to the exact place being referred to in the discussion.
I just tried on Chrome (I'm using Firefox whilst writing this) and having no problem there, either.0
this was a campaign where people were shown something that I had uploaded
Probably with some comment like - take a look at this item that was recently uploaded in ref to your family
and then the people would message me about it - (apparently from the view of the item) and their message would get sent without any link to the item.
I will see if I can replicate this issue.0
I did some testing and indeed it looks like (at least under the circumstances that I tested) that it was now working.0
