    Back to top?

    Is there a "back to top" feature for the forum?

    My mouse takes a hell of a battering when you keep having to scroll back up to the top of the page from the depths of hell that some threads seem to reach. I know theres other ways but a simple "back to top" would be useful if its possible.

    There is a new version of vbulletin out so we will be upgrading soon, no idea if that has it or a hack for it though.

    Its just a link that says "back to top" at the bottom of the page so when youre way down at the bottom of a thread you click it and it takes you back to the top where all the links for stuff like new posts are.

    Seems a bit odd if its not in there already, would have thought with the nature of forums and how long pages get it would have been pretty much standard.

    you can specify how many posts per page and the display mode which would enable you to shorten long pages , failing that the lh slider works .

    You can reduce the amount of scrolling by using CP, edit options, Thread Display Option, and set to linear - newest first.

    No back to top function but you can see new posts without scrolling to bottom of page every time.

    You can buy a 4 button mouse like mine which you just click the left button on and it takes you to the previous page

    Thanks. Just noticed. Cleverly disguised as "Top".

    Amazing how Ive used a site for a year and never noticed it. Daft thing is I use another site and its in exactly the same place but says "back to top" instead

    I can tie my own shoelaces, honest.

    Now that i've discovered the "top" thingy, my mouse is taking more of a battering as i scroll down to the bottom of every page just to click on the "top" function.
    Endless hours of fun.
    Can we get a "bottom" button at the top of the page?
