strange as that thread you linked to sounds like an issue with anchors and not an issue with the default settings of the forum/user going back to the thread and not index.

return to the message index is the default (which is the best and correct behavior)
return to the topic is not the default, unless the admin has set his system-defaults differently.


As for what the behavior is for return to topic  --- I tested this one three 2.0 boards...  it correctly returns to the POST that I just made in the topic.

Really?

I don't know anyone that has it set that way.

Everybody seems to prefer to see their post, to make sure it's OK.

and who is to say that this is the correct behavior? just because you like it this way does not mean everyone does, if most users prefer that it be otherwise i think the default should be changed in the next major release.

yup, really.

honestly K@, I have never seen anyone set it that way...   and on any site which has that as the default, it is one of the first thing that I change (and, with 32,000 users logging into one of my sites, I have never had a complaint about it being set to return to the index.)


As for reviewing your post -- that's what preview is for.

i always go back to my post by default so i can review it, and many users here have asked how to set it as default in support topics.

Same here.

Odd how our experiences, with that, are 180 degrees different, innit, Kindred?

Oh, well... It was just a suggestion.

definitely odd...   it always struck me as strange to have that on any board where I have seen it. My thought was "this is silly... why would anyone have ti go back to the post"


Just remember, I am always right*. :)

Personally, I always return to my post. :) And many times edit it for something trivial. :D

Weirdness is one of those inherited diseases that we get from our kids.

Or, in my case, my wife's.
