Here is a link to my recent thread:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/using-16-bits-per-channel-when-editing-old-jpegs/m-p/12946761

 

Is it possible to make this URL shorter, so that it will be more convenient to include it into some of my local documents for reference purposes?

 

I have just tried

https://community.adobe.com/t5/m-p/12946761
https://community.adobe.com/t5/12946761
https://community.adobe.com/m-p/12946761

but seems none of them work.

No of course not.  Adobe makes 50+ different products & services, each with their own product forum URL --  i.e. Photoshop ecosystem, Lightroom (mobile), Lightroom Classic, Creative Cloud, Illustrator, InDesign, etc...

 

If you want to shorten long URLs, copy the full & complete path and paste it into Tiny URL app below.

Hope that helps.

Hello, Nancy. That's would be a nice feature. Many websites do it so.

 

I mean an ID that will be unique to a particular thread, and which at the same time will be a part of URL, and which at the same time can be used to create a short URL.

 

Stack Exchange network, for example, consists from 179 communities, and the largest of them, Stack Overflow, currently has 22,576,006 questions asked. Each question, of course, have its own hyperlink and this hyperlink can be perfectly shortened without TinyURL or another external service.

 

Here is an example:

 

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/72154930/access-eventtarget-of-addeventlistener-without-using-a-variable

the description is optional and can be safely removed:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/72154930

and we can even abbreviate the word "questions" to "q":
https://stackoverflow.com/q/72154930

Adobe leases this social engagement platform from Khoros which doesn't support short URLs.

 

StackOverflow uses an entirely different organizational approach & engine made by Vanilla ™.  So you're comparing apples to oranges.

 

Adobe's decision makers probably won't switch to another new forum system until they have other compelling reasons for it.  It's costly to switch platforms and takes months & months of coordinated effort by numerous people behind the scenes.
