Top of Page & Forum Index Buttons.


Over at airliners.net (aka, a.net) they have, under the last post on each page of a thread, two very useful "buttons." One takes you back to the "Top of Page" and the other back to the "Forum Index." Both would be useful here.
Just a thought.

Now more than ever.

At the very least, a 'back to the top of the page' button, Please?

Thanks.

Is a "Top of Page" link something members would generally find useful (and regularly use)? We try to keep clutter down and I typically use the Home button for cases like this. As for the Forum Index suggestion, that's currently available in the Forum Jump near the bottom of each thread. Thanks for the feedback.

Top of page could be a useful feature, but paging back tends to get me where I want.

Found the "forum jump" function, but you have to log in to use it.
In all the years I've been reading this forum, the ONLY time I log in is to post a reply or ask a question (create a new topic).

It would not do any harm, but I just open a new tab for each topic and have no need to scroll back up - if I do, I use the HOME key on my keyboard...

Thanks for that.
Almost 40 years of using computers and until about a minute ago I had never used the 'home' key.
