( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I would like to make a development request to Perl Monks.

Specifically, I would like to see the ID of a node next to the subject title of that node. This is presently displayed at the top of a thread, but not on each node (or reply) displayed underneath on a page.

Why would I want this? Because I like to refer to nodes in the chatbox and also in private messages to other users. I like the [id://nnnnn] notation (where nnnnn is the node ID consisting entirely of digits).

At present I obtain this number by right-clicking on the node subject, copying the URL, then pasting the URL, and then trimming out the URL excluding the node ID itself. I would find it easier to just copy and paste the ID itself.

Would others find this a convenience also.. or perhaps it might be viewed as clutter?

Update: emphasised that I want to see the node id on each sub-node on a page, not just the node id of the thread at the top of the page. Suggested by jdporter.

Update 2: many thanks to bobf and demerphq for implementing this change as an option in Display Settings (see this reply).
