Default lost feature? :)

nothing overly serious, but with new board system you cant click back to "general" or "rants and flames" or whatever like you used to and I thought Vbulletin let you do?

used to use that quite a bit rather than back button all the time, wonder if that would be trouble to re-impliment, or am I just weird and noone else used to use that feature?

thanksies !

Subs.

Yeah, I noticed that too, which while it does nt really bother me, it makes me use up more bandwidth then I need to having to load a few extra pages per thread I post on.

Also, I don't like the way it forwards me to my post when I make it, I really don't want to see it and since I can't click on the link to go back to the forum I was in and clicking back is pointless cause you have to go through a redirect and three pages, it makes me use even more bandwidth. I don't know if that aspect is controllable or not, but I guess I will look around in my user options to see if that can be fixed on my end.

You're correct, I turned it off on accident, back now though. :)

edit: I was looking to add an option that "mark forum read" would bring you back to the index of the board instead of the forum and turned this feature off by accident (in one of the templates). Who besides me would rather want to be forwarded to the index of the board instead of the forum that you just marked as read?

Me too. Makes lots more sense. Marking a forum read seems to me like I've finished with it for now.

I'm also missing "Mark forum read" at the top of the forum, but I guess I'll get used to finding it at the bottom. Or can we have it in both places?

Yeah, I don't mind the extra click, but it effectively doubles the bandwidth that I use for that thread every time I post. The bandwidth is my only concern.

what's this all about? haha. I had to go back and read it all again.

Did the poster ask why there was no "forum jump" feature? I thought it was always there and I have alkways been using it :P it says in the drop down "General" if I am reading a general post, and if I click the go button beside it like the above post mentions, I get punted back to the general forum.

and what exactly does marking the forum as read do? I did it to a couple sections, and looked around, and nothing had changed. so I went into the root of all the sections and it all looked the same. What am I missing? :P

/edit Also, as for it punting you to the thread you just posted it, I don't see the problem. it lets me glance over my post once more and make sure I didn't screw up, then I just click the little go button in the bottom right hand corner and voila, back to the index.

I think you should go back to index after marking a forum read...
