'Message Listing' needed at bottom of page!

Hi all,

Still finding my way around this new forum site, some things I like others not so. One thing I miss, and cannot find, is something like a 'Message Listing' link at the bottom of each forum page. It's not a problem on say a short thread, but where there are lots of messages which use the whole page, you then get to the end having finished, then need to scroll all the way up to the top and then click that forum link to see all the different threads again. On the old site we could just click that link at bottom of page and we would be at the message listing again.

Be great if this could be implemented into this site.

Just a thought.

Hi brummie.

So you would like the "Back to Forum List" box at the bottom of the page as well as at the top left?  Have I understood you correctly?

Does just hitting the browsers "back" arrow help do almost what you want?

Hi Andmike,

Yes I would, for the reasons already explained. Nearly all forums sites have this incl. the old one we used so why not have it here?

Another thing I am missing, is when you have posted to a thread, it doesn't show anything to indicate this, which is useful when going back to the forum after being away for a while. Still, early days yet!

Hi brummie.

I like your idea of putting the "Back to Forum List" box at the bottom of the page.  It does not seem to do much at the top as you can easily select the forum from the tree just above it.  Why not send an email to Tony_Weiss and see if you can persuade him directly?

On your second point I assume you are referring to something like the old forum where the icon on the left of the list of forum threads changed if you had made a post in the thread.  If this is the case then you may like to know that this has already been raised with Tony who I believe has decided that it is not going to be implemented at the moment (there are a lot of other probably more important things that need doing).  However if you believe that this is important, again, why not email him directly.  That way he will get a better idea of the feelings about this issue.

Hi Andmike,

I think I will send him a PM. I didn't know the second point was already raised by someone, I shall mention that too, thanks.

Edit. PM sent, if I get anything back will post.

Re: 'Message Listing' needed at bottom of page!

just to clarify for others, this is what you mean:

I like the idea of being able to go back to the board from the bottom of the page. What if we had the breadcrumb repeated at the bottom?

That would be fine for me Tony.  Or the "Back to Forum List" at the bottom.  I really see no point for it at the top.

However I will now step aside for brummie to comment, its his thread...

Tony,

There's no link to the next page available at the top of long threads.  For example  -  https://community.norton.com/forums/symantec-please-explain

At the bottom of the first page is a link to the next few pages;

But there's no way I've found to get to the last page / post of that thread.

Could we get something like that back please?

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hi Tony,

Yes, that is indeed what I mean, if we could go that way, I and I am sure others would be happier with this.

One hundred percent... When not the best, at least the better...

I agree. Useful at bottom, redundant at the top.

Little-by-little...

Re: 'Message Listing' needed at bottom of page!

Hi all.  I have not made a strong case for this sensible request (i.e. go to be able to leap to the last page) but a while ago I have made a strong request to be able to leap to the last post in any thread (whether read or not).  I hope this has been taken on board but I have not received any formal response.  If you think that it is a good idea, you may wish to say so.
