You mark a topic or forum as read, and it takes you to the index page.

I've raised this issue before and it's frustrating!

Look folks, if we want to mark it read we're done, OK?! :down

That works fine for me so I'm not sure why it's not working for you, John?

OK Aff, so your computer takes you to the index page, or you like having extra unnecessary clicks?

:rofl

Actually, in reality we all get this message . . .

"The topics for this forum have now been marked read.

Return to the forum last visited"


Then it automatically takes you back . . . to where you no longer want to be because you've marked it as read. Duh!


So, after one sees . . .

"The topics for this forum have now been marked read.

Return to the forum last visited"


. . . . we are required to burn calories by doing a clicking action and/or risk carpal tunnel syndrome to get to the index page.


:terrific NOT!

In PhPBB, it returns you to the place of the action you selected in not the index.

It's the same when you create a new post you return to the post unless you select the option of the forum.

I will have a look to see if there's a tweak because it is a valid point, but I have to say I am really busy at the moment. There are a number of updates that need doing to the forum, but I don't have the time just now.

Kevin Phillips?

And when you mark something as read, you have the options along the top to go where you wish to.

Sure, and another click to be made.

Here's another . . . 'You have been successfully logged in' . . . then . . . . nothing . . . . another click is needed to get to the index page.

Sorry to go on, but ALL other sites take you to the index page automatically. :tantrum <------ justified anger of the umpteenth kind

I'm sure everyone would appreciate these kind of changes . . . . except that Aff likes things the way they are.


:doh

I don't recall saying that anywhere. I suggested a workaround until Kev has the time to implement the changes you seek. Apologies if that wasn't what you wanted.
