Thoughts on the forums
« on: May 28, 2014, 10:48:53 PM »
So, I'm mildly vexed by something that happens in these forums.  Every time I post a reply to a thread, it redirects me back to the sub-forum screen rather than going back into the thread itself like pretty much every other forum I post in.  Its a very minor issue, but I was thinking it would be an easy fix for the mods?

Edit: Same happens when I post a new topic apparently.

thanks for the concern :D
And also, for the message section, can we see the message we sent?
Because I can't find it anywhere even though I have checked in "Sent Item" section
I am sorry if this is not a place to speak out this issue :)
Thanks again
===Feel free to add me===

@heroguy: About the redirect of a post in a topic, there is an option, under "Profile>>Modify Profile>>Look and Layout" there is a check-box, it says: "Return to topics after posting by default" I checked it and it seems to take me back to the same topic instead of the forum section, don't know if this is what you wanted :S

@donleong exactly what i thought! we are not able to read our own message...wut!

Don when you send a message you have to select save to outbox in the bottom left

Hero that feature exists for mobile users so they can post a post and then redirect to sub forums, its really good for when im on my phone but i feel your pain it is really annoying sometimes!

This will be my first post after changing the setting.  Thanks for the heads up and hopefully it will work!  :)

@8bitproxy: I can see how that feature is great for mobile surfing on these forums.  Also, thanks for getting back to me on this so quickly!

Edit: It solved the issue.  Thanks a bunch!

Seems a bit backwards to not have that as the default option like most other forums. Ah well, thanks for posting the workaround, much appreciated!
