There's no button to get the anchor of a post within a thread apart from the "parent" link on a child post
Open, NormalPublic

Description

If you are in a Thread: page and you want to link a specific post, currently you can either: use the "link to" button under "more", but this gives you a link to a page where only that post is included, so you can't scroll up/down to see other posts; or arrive at this page and click the "From ..." link under the page title, which brings you to the thread with an anchor to the post; or search a child post and use "parent" button.
To avoid cluttering the interface and following [[mw:LiquidThreads/Redesign]] and e.g. the interface proposed in [[mw:File:Lqt-thread-full.png]], I would suggest to use that arrows as a place where hovering the mouse would provide you an anchor link to the post, like ¶ links which appears hovering Sphinx page headers (random example: http://docs.python.org/howto/regex.html ).
More problems with relative links: bug 23382, bug 24082; another suggestion for "link to" button in bug 24627.

Design issue; taking.

Still works as reported by Nemo.

The starting post of a thread is linkable with an anchor tag, for example: https://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Main_Page#Testy_McTester_thread_31

I would expect the date and time for each post to be clickable and to take me to an anchor tag on the full talk page. Seems like that wouldn't clutter the display, and would work as many users would expect from similar interfaces.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
