How to copy any post

This guide will show you how to copy the full code for any post in a closed topic, when you no longer have an option of quoting the original contents.
Update: It does now does work in the newer versions of FireFox (Check the bottom of the post)

Chrome and Internet Explorer: Step One
On the left side of every post there is a javascript button titled "Post Link". Next to the post that contains the code you want to copy, click the 'Post Link' button and copy the 9-Digit number at the end of the text in the popup box that appears after the '&p=' at the end of the line. You will need that number later on.



Chrome and Internet Explorer: Step Two
Type
Code
javascript:dq()
into your URL bar and copy the number we acquired in step one. Then paste it between the parentheses() in your URL bar.
Note: Internet Explorer & Google Chrome users cannot copy the word javascript into the URL bar, they will have to type it manually.




Chrome and Internet Explorer: Step Three
Then hit enter and the post's code will be visible to you in the same way your post's code is visible when you are editing your posts. You can now copy the code for the post and use it where you wish.



Section Two: Firefox

Firefox: Step One
On the left side of every post there is a javascript button titled "Post Link". Next to the post that contains the code you want to copy, click the 'Post Link' button and copy the 9-Digit number at the end of the text in the popup box that appears after the '&p=' at the end of the line. You will need that number later on.

Firefox: Step Two
  • Click "Tools" at the top of the window
  • Move over "Web Developer"
  • In the popout menu, click "Web Console"
Note: You can also accomplish this by pressing Control + Shift + 'K'

Firefox: Step Three
Type
Code
javascript:dq()
in the newly opened console window and copy the number we acquired in step one. Then paste it between the parentheses ()
Then hit enter and the post's code will be visible to you in the same way your post's code is visible when you are editing your posts. You can now copy the code for the post and use it where you wish.


Extra Notes:
  • To achieve the same effect in Guild Notes, use javascript:E() instead of javascript:dq()
  • Be sure to credit the original post maker if you copy part of a guide
