Muscle memory had already started, due to my Learnin' phase with Web-based communication vs NNTP (I kept hitting the Home key at end-of-thread), but the footer breadcrumbs are definitely a real positive! Muscles already re-trained to stop hitting Home at EOT.
Now if we could get the Search box to stop trapping the Tab key infinitely....

Happy to be back to old habits now.
It would be nice to also have a repeat of the "Up to Discussions in [forum list]" link at the bottom, since we can't use the back button without losing our place.
Doesn't 'Discussions do the same thing?
Discussions always goes to page 1 of the thread overview pages. Up to Discussions returns you to the overview page you came from.
The back button does work (sort of) to get you to the same page if you have hit the Up to Discussions link earlier. ie:
However, the back button always brings you to the top of the page, not to the section of the page you had scrolled down to read.
I think adding the Up to Discussions link at the bottom is a good idea, too - if the Jive software cannot be written to allow for one of the oldest and most used features of Web browsers.
There's more than one overview page? I give up.
i think making the forum work like a normal web site - with the back button and cursors and refresh and HEYnGlavin and all - would be a good idea. get right on that, mm-kay?
Have a look at page 15 (assuming you're viewing 30 subjects per page).
Could someone please explain what breadcrumbs in a forum context are.
Be they at the bottom, top or sides.
Thank you for the link.
As we say here in South Africa: Ja well, no fine.
