    The "Choose Forum" dropdown box?


    There used to be a dropdown box on the bottom right of each page that let you select a forum and you would automatically be brought there. But today it's gone.

    Any chance of getting that back? It was very useful.

    It was removed a couple of days back, but I know Core Wizard is monitoring any feedback from members that made use of that function/feature.

    True, we are enhancing the forums for faster page load, the reason why we removed it, but if a lot of people want it back, we'll bring it back...

    If speed is the issue, maybe a simpler solution is to add a link at the bottom of the discussion thread to get back to the forum that the thread appears in - this would be useful and a good alternative. At the moment, you have to scroll all the way back to the top of the thread if you want to get back to the forum. This is easy for short threads - but a P-I-T-A for really long threads.

    Precisely.

    I've learned recently, however, that if you press the "Home" key in Firefox, it brings you to the top of the page. This makes life easier.
