Title: "Go Up" button function changed?
Post by: Mcgrooger on May 04, 2012, 08:03:46 PM
Sorry if this has already been asked or if the change is deliberate, but the 'go up' button at the bottom of a thread page used to take us to the very top of the page but now only goes up to the top reply/message which I preferred. Again, apologies if this is intentional or just a quirk of my PC.

Bump...Is it just me??

Never used it myself but it now does what you say. ie to the top of the thread not the top of the page.

Not sure whatever you mean by the difference between top of page and top reply/message.

For me the 'go up' button still goes to the first message on the page you are viewing,  which is what it has always done. I'm using either Firefox in OS X, or Safari on an iPad with the same behaviour.

Hi Theo. It does go to the top post on the page whereas on my computer using Firefox it used, until quite recently, to go right to the top of the page showing the tabs for Home/Forum Home etc.

I understand now.  Actually I don't recall whether I saw that difference before.
Is it a problem the way it is now?  If so I suggest you PM Clive Williams.

I've just realised that my first post on this thread was ambiguous and should have said I'd prefer it if the go up button in the forums took you right up to the top of the page you're on rather than the first post and that that's the way it used to work on my computer. Seeing as it's only me who's mentioned it, I'm thinking it might only be me who preferred it the way it was before!

Before the change , I used the 'Go up' to allow me to choose the 'crumb trail' to jump to other headings in the forum .
After the change , the 'crumb trail' has been added to the bottom , so navigation is actually quicker . Or it would be , if I didn't automatically 'go up' as it's embeeded in my muscle memory . ust a case of re-educating myself .

The crumb trail , don't know the actual term , looks like :-
