I recently wrote about the redesigned general conference section of LDS.org. In additional to the items I mentioned in that article, here is a great feature you may find useful.

The site now allows you to create a deep link to a specific paragraph of a conference talk. That means you can provide a link that highlights a specific story, teaching, or quote within a talk. Here’s how it works:

Suppose you want to provide a link to the story that Sister Marriott gave in the October 2015 conference about her daughter’s bike accident.

  1. Navigate to the talk and copy the URL. In this example, the URL would be https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2015/10/yielding-our-hearts-to-god?lang=eng
  2. In this example, the story we want to link to is in paragraph 17 of the talk. Therefore, immediately after the name of the talk, we add “.p17” (the number of the paragraph you want to highlight).
  3. At very end of the URL, add “#p16” (the number of the paragraph you want the user to be jumped to—the paragraph before the one you highlight).
  4. Thus, your new URL would be the following: https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2015/10/yielding-our-hearts-to-god.p17?lang=eng#p16

The image below shows how this link jumps to just before the story, and highlights the paragraph. Users can easily read it and also browse the rest of talk for greater context.

Note: There is currently no ability to link in this way to highlight multiple paragraphs, just a single paragraph.
