"Hop to:" at top as well as bottom

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I use the "Hop to:" pop-up menu quite a lot but I find it annoying that I have to scroll to the bottom of the page for it.

Example if I post in a thread in Future Hardware and then want to hop to Current Hardware I have to scroll down to the bottom of the thread for the menu or go back to the main forum page and choose Current Hardware.

Could the "Hop to:" menu be placed near the top of the page as well as the bottom??

Thanks,

J :cool:

Yeah, that's a good suggestion. Also, besides having that can we get links to each topic like at MacNN? I used that a lot over there and I like it better than the "Hop To:" thing.

I second that motion. In fact, I came over here to post a thread on this and found that it'd already been mentioned. Thanks jaimemarshall!

What do you mean? Links on the main page to the currently active topics

BTW, having the Hop To button at the top as well isn't that hard, but I don't think they are willing to do anymore hacks

If it isn't so hard then why won't they do it?

We've been told not to hack it ourselves.

This is out of context. You don't know Perl, that's why you've been told not to hack the UBB.

Given how fast one can get to the bottom of a page (Command-Down Arrow works pretty well), I don't think this is necessary enough to warrant hacking the BB. Hacking is a pain since you have to reapply all these hacks after upgrading the BB...this one isn't worth it.

Yah, I'm going to add that at some point this week. Probably Friday/Saturday. (This week is busy.)
