Back Button

Just lately iv noticed something quite annoying.

so i click on a thread from members motors within the grande punto section:
Click image for larger version

Name:	forum1.JPG
Views:	8
Size:	109.0 KB
ID:	101112

but then, because the thread was within members motors directory, I cant click the site tree to go back to grande punto(shown in red below). And, if i read lots of different pages, open pictures, login/logout, it renders the back button useless.

Click image for larger version

Name:	forum2.JPG
Views:	9
Size:	121.2 KB
ID:	101113

anyone know what I mean? its not so much a problem seeing as I know the URL off the top of my head but jut one of those things

Re: Back Button

You could always add it to your Quick Links, so that when you click on your username at the top it's on there.

Re: Back Button

There is always the forum jump at the bottom of the page.

This could have some merit though, especially since we now have lots of cross-posting.

Re: Back Button

i usually use tabs

but for newcomers, clicking in grande punto to end up in members motors would be confusing I reckon..

anyway, its there. cross directories. if its not a problem leave it, was just pointing out...........

Re: Back Button

Problem is, the threads shown in the car section are just links to the other (MM for example).

So when you view a linked thread, there is no way of knowing you actually came from the car forum.

There is one possible work around for this (check if the referring page was a SHOWFORUM page - and if so, use that in the navbits) - I'll look into it, but not promising anything, because on the flip side - sometimes we want people to see it as the new forum (for example, a 500 USA thread clicked from the 500 forum allows people to see there is a seperate forum for that)

Didnt it use to be like that?

I've not done it for a while.. But when i used to click on Punto Members Motors in the Punto section it used to show only Punto's.

But im guessing that this is just a "Show" Filter and when clicking on a specific vehicle it would link back to the generic MM instead of vehicle MM

Re: Back Button

there is a way of filtering the MM section?? I have tried to do that hundreds of times and figured it wasn't possible. Not really an issue as they show in the actual car section these days.

Bottom left, in display options of the MM section.

"Prefix" select from the drop down menu

Use the Prefix filter at the bottom of the page
