When I am in a forum, let's say TAO forum, and I scroll towards the bottom of the page, if I click on a thread, then hit the back button, I am always redirected to the top of the page, not back to where I was. I don't know if anyone has mentioned this in this thread, but it is quite annoying.
I use the "Back" button a LOT. It is how I keep track of where I am. But with the site bumping me up to the top each time, I can't keep up with where I am.
Plus, there is the added thing that it does not mark the threads I check out as "read" until I hit the refresh button. So, unless I continuously hit the refresh button I can keep going back to the same page and seeing the same thing, over and over again.
I am not sure if I am making this clear, because it is just "minor" things, I guess, but they are annoying when I am surfing around the site.
So, if I go to the TAO Forum and then scroll down to the middle of the page, then I click on a thread there, read the thread, post on the thread, then hit the back button, the TAO page looks exactly the same as it did before I clicked. I will not only be back at the very top of the TAO page, but if I look down the page to find the thread I just posted on it does not show that I have posted on that thread, and I will still show the "Go to first post" button on the left indicating that I have never been there.
I can check out every post on the page, followed by hitting the back button, and by looking at the TAO page, never know I looked at even one thread unless I hit the refresh button (or go forward to another page and then go "forward" to the TAO page again). It is very confusing.
Please say they are going to fix that?
In the old forums the "clicked" links changed colors and when you hit "Back" it took you back exaclty where you were before you clicked (so if you were at the bottom, you found yourself at the bottom once you went "Back").
