    Ah, yes, very handy when browsing those long threads. Thanks David (almost typed Demos there by reflex).

    Very useful. Though having said that I have a lovely wheel on my mouse that takes me up quickly :)

    You're welcome, Guv. It's one of the minor features that I personally always appreciate on forums myself. Hate scrolling down a thread and then having to scroll back up to go back to the forum listing.

    I've also modified the breadcrumbs to omit the 'Category' link (ie 'Miscellany', 'The Condition of Muzak' and 'Media'). This means - to use this forum as an example - from this thread you can either click a breadcrumb to take you back to 'Eldren Technology' or to 'Moorcock's Miscellany' (also known as the "Forum Jump Menu".

    This is because I'm working on developing something for specific Forums (all will be explained/revealed in due course, for the moment its all 'no names, no pack drill') and removing the Categories is necessary to aid navigation. The downside - at the moment - is that when you click on a Category from the Forum Jump Menu (aka 'Moorcock's Miscellany') they're not showing the forums within them.

    I need to work on that because it will be less confusing to people if that doesn't happen. In the meantime, I can only ask everyone to bear with me.

    Now you mention it, I think I was browsing the forum when you changed it. I noticed something different but couldn't pin it down! Very handy, thank you.

    "Breadcrumbs" added to bottom of threads

    I've managed to add a set of 'breadcrumbs' at the bottom of each thread that should allow people to quickly return to the forum without having to scroll back up to the top of the page. I find this particularly useful for the longer threads we get around here. You'll find them just above the lower 'Post Reply' icon.

    For those who don't know, the 'breadcrumbs' look like this:

    Moorcock's Miscellany > Miscellany > Eldren Technology

    I'm looking at other ways of improving people's browsing experiences in the forums, but this is a 'live' system and any changes happen immediately - which should only be a problem if they have unintended effects. So if anything suddenly looks or behaves a little differently all of a sudden you'll know who's responsible.
Working...
