I can’t be sure, because my memory lacks clarity, but back in the old days I have this memory that when we typed in a sutta reference for example mn28, the forum software would automatically turn the text (mn28) into a link to the relevant passage in the (now legacy) sutta central website. I think this got lost when the new website came along. Is there any plans to reintroduce this functionality? Or am I imagining that it ever existed? Anyway. it would be super cool.
Alternatively could the main site also be searched in the link search results of the forum software?
