Back to the top ....

#1 Post by XJR Jason » Tue Dec 31, 2019 2:12 pm

Would it be possible to have a 'back to the top' button?

I've found myself scrolling back up to the forum button, to the see new posts.

There is the 'Jump To' button at the bottom of the topic, where you can access any part of the forum. But it would be good to have a user-specific 'Posts since you last logged on' button somewhere. Is that what you were meaning?

I guess what I was looking for was a 'back to Forums' (or as you put, back to unread posts) as that then shows all topic subjects and if any have had new posts since last seen.

The jump to, and return to, only go one stage back.

But there are only so many buttons/short cuts that can be added etc.

I'm sure Ben will be along shortly, and he'll know if what you want is feasible. I'm not quite brave enough to start cutting and shutting the new forum layout yet... :smt003

If you go down the page a bit further from the 'back to (whatever) form' there's a link that just says 'Forums' - I use that, straight back to the top.

Cool ok. I think you're after a goto link, where when you click it, it scrolls back to the top of the page?

See the little grey arrow on the bottom right of every post? That'll do it.

Well that's far too small :smt023

Yup that's the one
