"Go back to the page you were previously viewing" - From User CP


I just noticed today that once I edited my UserCP profile information, I had to navigate back through to the page I was viewing (because I didn't want to use the browser "back" button which won't load the page fresh).

It would be nice to have a link in the UserCP which would directly take me back to the page I was viewing previously rather than go back using the forum menus or the dropdown lists and then click the topic link again.

You click the back button, then refresh (or reload).

Personally, I'd prefer to return to where I'd left off. Do we really want to reate work for jeremy for a couple of clicks?

Note, though, that your edited profile will display correctly without refreshing the page.

We don't actually store the page you were viewing previously and doing something like a javascript history-1 is pretty much the same as just hitting the back button + refresh, so wouldn't really gain much.
