I wanted to link to an answer to a Stack Overflow question, but couldn't find a way to do it. I couldn't get the ID of the answer in order to create the link.

How can you get the permalink for an answer to a question?

Beneath every answer you'll see a link called "share". That's your permalink. For example, the permalink to this answer is http://meta.stackexchange.com/a/25107/21960.

On any given answer, you'll see a link which says, "share". That's the permalink to the answer. Right-click it and copy the URL to your clipboard, then use that whenever you need the permalink to the answer.
