Minor feedback

Just some minor feedback regarding the software for this site. On the left column under my user name it lists "recent posts" in two different locations. This is confusing. I think clicking the first one shows all recent posts and clicking the second one is to show my recent posts.

It's not a big deal but it might be a small bug that you've hadn't noticed. It would probably be clearer if it said "All Recent Post" and "My Recent Posts".

Hey gcbryan, thanks for the tip!  You're right, they were redundant, and they actually showed the exact same information.  There's just one link now: http://budgetlightforum.cz.cc/recent-posts

Here's another suggestion.  Can you put a "Back to Top" link on the bottom of each topic so we can click it and go back to the top?  It would be nice, especially with these longer topics of more than 2 or 3 dozen posts, to click "Back to Top" and instantly go back to the top instead of having to scroll all the way up.  Some of the more popular topics have several dozen posts and tons of pictures.   Maybe even a 2nd "Home" link on the bottom would be nice also.

Just a suggestion. :bigsmile:

There was actually one trivial difference between the two - one showed the time of the last post and the lower one showed the elapsed time since the last post. Given the amount of time I spend here I used it more than the upper one. But for more sensible people the upper one is a far better choice. I think i score a few geek points for noticing that one.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I always starts in "Recents Posts" and rarely goes into the Forum main menu.

What I would like is a button "Mark All Read in there. Possible?

Good suggestion, thanks!  Now implemented.  Btw I just now noticed in the bottom left-hand corner of each post there is a "Top" link.  But even so we now have one at the very bottom of the page together with a home button.

Likewise, a good suggestion, I've been wanting this myself.  I hacked the button in there and it works, but it redirects you the main /forum page.

Now that is much easier then scrolling all the way back to the top of the page and go from there, thanks Mr. Admin.
