Marking all topics as read

Postby RogerG » Wed Apr 18, 2007 12:22 pm

Would it not be more sensible, when one marks all topics as read in a forum, to return to the form index rather than the forum itself? I would assume that a user who marks all topics as read does not wish to read any more items in that forum.

fair enough.
Not my code though. Does it auto-return or give you a link? I could probably put a link in easily enough.

I feel strongly about this as well, Roger. Everytime I mark all topics as read, I click on the "forum" link next to store before the page redirects me. I think it'd be nice to be redirected to the forum index.

It gives you a link to return the forum and then auto-returns to the forum anyway!

...so users on machines that don't cope well with automatic redirection don't get stuck on that page without having a link to get back to the forum.

But yeah I'd like the page to have a link offering you the forum, or the forum index, then a redirection to the index.

Ok. It's just that since I didn't write it, I'm not sure where that code is. It won't be too hard to fiddle with, but I don't really have time to do it this month.

thanks, but it's really just a matter of having the time to search through the phpBB docs and find where the thing is.
