Title: A "Back To Top" button.
Post by: Fallout on September 25, 2004, 10:45:09 pm
Call me lazy but i cant be assed scrolling all the way back up again to click the thing that takes you back to the main forum page, so could you please implement a "back to top" button at the bottom? Or a link to take you to the main page with all the different forum things on it..

just make the forum your browser's home page and use the home icon :)

it already is my homepage :) but i'd prefer while my mouse is at the bottom of the screen to be able to quickly move it over to the "back to main page" button so it takes me back instantly..

I agree with this one. Plus, I forget I have a home page clicky. Having a bottom link to the front page would be great.

Too much effort. What we really want is a forum-brain direct interaction network (FBDIN) that automatically takes to where we go as soon as we think about it.

You lazy bastard!!! (mission I just completed in mafia was called you lucky bastard)

Here is a hint, my hint: On your keyboard there is a "page up" button. If you hold that button you'll be trasa-mo-located to the top the page scrolling through the messages really quickly.

For crying out loud... there's a home button on your keyboard that brings you to the top of the page. Look at it, press it. It's even quicker than targetting a back to the top button.

bad k. poster bad. Borrows VRs whip.

ummm.... home button??? that is even better then holding the page up button, its amazing what you can find if you look for it. For example anyone knows what the Scroll Lock button is for??? or even the pause break button on your keyboard.

Exactly what I do for everything. I've known this forever. Good advice people, start using it.

(I think you can lock this now)
