Want to get involved in developing SMF, then why not lend a hand on our github!

Come back to topic after sending a quick reply

Hi to all, this is my first post here.

I've installed SFM 2.0.6 for the first time and created a custom theme (I'm a developer).

I've noticed that if a user send a quick reply to a topic, he's redirected to the section board, instead to the topic.

It is the default behaviour? There is a setting to change this (and redirect the user to the topic)?

If I can change this hardcoding my theme there is no problem, please suggest me where to edit this.



Return to topics after posting by default. - Check this box if you wish to return to the post you just submitted instead of returning to the index of the board you posted the topic in.

returning to the message index is the default action, because it makes sense (I never understood why would anyone want to go back to the topic that they just finished reading?)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.<br /><br />"Loki is not evil, although he is certainly not a force for good. Loki is... complicated."

Many people will reply to a post before they've read any further, and so would want to return to the topic to read some more. Where exactly to return to is an open question -- to the top of the next page, or to the post after the one you just replied to, or ??
