That doesn't do what the OP is asking for.

    I disagree. This does do what the OP asked for, but with a caveat. If you do as Grandfather suggested, you will have a nice [id://XXXX] string in your Personal Nodelet for the root node, but not all sub-nodes. Solution: just click on the sub node, load the page, and your Personal Nodelet will be updated accordingly. Problem: you do introduce another server hit, but is it really that big of a deal?

    I think the best solution is what McDarren suggested: Monk Links - Copy Perlmonks-links to the clipboard in on-site-format. And by the way, don't you think a /msg to Grandfather would have been a bit more tactful than simply replying with "you are wrong" and not adding a solution yourself?

    UPDATE: I'm sorry, but there is this little saying called "There is more than one way to do it." Grandfather merely offered what he thought was an acceptable work around. I simply took this a bit further to show how the work around could be applied so that OP could get the info they needed. There is nothing wrong nor right about this. I hate to do this but thanks to jdporter's reply below, i would like to point out jdporter's original reply to Grandfather.

      I agree with jdporter. It's faster manually copying and pasting the link and creating an [id://] tag from it than to load up a PM page. The OP proposes something even easier and faster.
      . . . for the root node, but not all sub-nodes. . . .

      In other words, it utterly does not do what the OP asked for.

      And your workaround is (if I may speak for the OP) also not acceptable.

      you do introduce another server hit, but is it really that big of a deal?

      I don't think he's concerned about the server hit; he's concerned about his convenience, particularly considering how slow it can be to load a PerlMonks page, as well as having to go Back or close temporary browser windows.

      McDarren's suggestion is the only really good one (aside from implementing the OP's idea).

      Personally, I don't think the OP's idea is that bad. But given the existence of Monk Links - Copy Perlmonks-links to the clipboard in on-site-format, it doesn't seem particularly critical.

      We're building the house of the future together.
