Jump to Top on Forums?

When looking at the forums on mobile it's really nice that the most recent post comes up. However if you have several different boards and several different posts going on at once you might not get to the one you wanted to get to right away and you may have to scroll a lot. That said I'm wondering if it's possible to add a jump to top link at the bottom of every post automatically? Or if there is someway to activate that option if it already exist? It would be incredibly helpful for those of us who make frequent use of our forums or do play by post!

    Sounds like a useful tweak.  I'll add it to the list.  Thanks for the request!

    The more I think about it, at least for play by post games, it would probably be easiest if you had the forums work like this:

     

    (Action)  - (Result)

    Click on Forum - Display Subforums

    Click on Subforum - Display Threads

    Click on Thread - Display Most Recent Post

     

    Combining that with a "top of page" link at the bottom of every post really would make phone navigation a TON smoother.  It really helps out when just surfing the forums in general and reading the threads written by other people.

    That all makes sense.  Thanks for laying it out!  I'll add it to the list.

    @camarilladee, when viewing the Campaign Forums on a mobile device, there is now an upward pointing triangle button (it's midway up the screen on the right hand side of the screen) that will scroll all the way to the top.
