Question about posting threads and replies
« on: November 13, 2009, 02:36:49 AM »
Why is it that when I post a thread or reply it takes me outside of the target thread? I always have to find the correct thread again to view it...

Rather annoying....

Profile (between Search and My Messages) -> Look and Layout Preferences (left hand menu) -> Return to topics after posting by default (should be a tick box)

I also reverse the order of the threads, so when there is a new reply, rather than scrolling all the way through, the newest stuff is right at the top.

Actually, this reminds of a issue i have with blogs - some blogs have newer posts buttons - on the LEFT and OLDER posts on the right / even though in a western society text goes from LEFT to RIGHT - ergo right is where newer/next should be, and LEFT were previous/older posts should be. I am talking about button positions.

Some blogs however have next post button on the *left* point to OLDER posts. That just doesn't make any sense (especially when you consider that the logical follow up to have a previous button pointing to the *newer* posts. As if these were previous (in time) - all hail broken blog software
