Page Re-director (NOT ALL OF THEM WORK):


http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/pageshortcutcode.png

Open the Page Source. The current page is the page you've opened the page source from.

Find "div id"
http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/pageshortcutfind.png
http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/pageshortcutfoundid.png

Example: I opened the page source on my profile. [http://armorgames.com/user/Graham]
I found div id "wrapper".
To redirect to "wrapper", my URL is http://armorgames.com/user/Graham#wrapper

Games in Fullscreen:

http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/fullgamescode.png

Open the Page Source on the game you would like to view in fullscreen.

Find "files/games"
http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/fullgamesfind.png
http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj146/grahaam/fullgamesfoundswf.png

Simply add it on to the address http://armorgames.com/

http://armorgames.com/files/games/final-sustenance-109.swf

It will automatically transform to http://cache.armorgames.com/files/games/final-sustenance-109.swf

nice! I was thinking about doing this myself eventually, but glad someone did. Pretty nice and organized too. Great job, I'm adding this to the collection of guides linked in my About.

No, this is just an update in a separate thread for convenience. Hmm.. Great work Graham, I'll be archiving this too. If someone ever makes a completely brand new URL Tricks guide, this ought to be in that.

I know a simpler way of obtaining a post or comment's unique ID number. Instead of viewing the page source, right click on the flag icon of the post/comment. Click on "copy URL", "copy link address" or anything similar to that. Paste the address somewhere and you should see something like..

http://armorgames.com/comments/flag/5591327

The numbers that are in bold form the unique ID number of the post I chose.

http://armorgames.com/community/thread/5591327

Go to that address and you'll see the post I made in this thread earlier.

Note that Graham has found a whole lot of tricks through page source viewing.

The viewing comments has a couple faults. Parents had to take the computer when they left (for 3 days) so I rushed.

Notice they still have votearea for the vote-up? C:

An excellent example.

Yep. I've noticed the news areas of the sites still have the vote up and the "armatar next to your comment" things. They were both removed early last year.

Computer's gone? What are you using?
