    possible "back to top" option

    When you're scrolling through to read the recent posts in a particular thread, would it be possible to have a button to take you back up without scrolling back up. I hope this doesn't make me seem too lazy, but all the scrolling does get daunting.

    Yeah the back button.
    A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

    I was afraid I wouldn't come across the way I wanted to.


    The back takes you a page back. I just want to go back to the top of the CURRENT page.

    Sorry I like to be catty. Scrolling really isn't a difficult task however.

    You're having a laugh!?


    The 'PgUp' button on your keyboard will have the desired effect if you can bring yourself to pressing a button.

    Any moderators reading this, could you please just kill this thread?

    I would go on, but that would be tooo much! :: awaiting snarky, saracastic comments ::

    I have to wonder why I spend so much time on this board.

    Missa there is nothing wrong with asking that, I have wondered myself.

    Using the pg up button on my computer doesn't send automatically to the top so that isn't a good option for me anyway.
    Wanna see my grandkids?

    Down at the bottom right hand corner it says "Top". Click on that and you go back to the top of the current page ...

    The only thing that I know is to go up to quick links, click on Edit Options, and go down to Default Thread Subscription Mode and change it from Do Not Subscribe to however you would like to receive your notifications.

    If anyone else knows of another way, let me know!!

    You can click your name & choose "read all posts." I go to my profile by clicking my name up at the top right ("Welcome, Rararamona!") then lick statistics, "find all posts" & see what's been posted.

    After your settings have been changed so that when you post on a thread you automaticly are subscribed to that thread then any time posts are added you will see that thread listed when you go to UCP(user control panel). when you log in just hit the button for UCP and you'll have a list of threads that have been updated since your last visit. I use a browser with tabs so that I can open multiple pages in one browser window. I open UCP in one tab and just reload it to update.
