Forum navigation suggestion

Can this bar be inserted at the end of the last post?

It would help (me, at least) with navigating back to the portal page.

I'm not sure I understand the issue you are having, but if you want a quick link to the portal page there is always a tab at the top of each page for the portal, the forums, classifieds, reviews, ect.

Hopefully, this will better describe what I'm suggesting.

I don't want to have to scroll all the way back to the top (or bottom) of a thread to navigate back to the portal page.

It's a good suggestion. But for now, until the next time we upgrade software versions (shuddering with anxiety at the prospect...), maybe you could hit the back arrow in your browser?

Didn't we ban the last guy that suggested a software upgrade?

That's what I usually do, however, the portal page is not refreshed that way.

DUH, why didn't I think of that? Very quick and easier than software upgrades with accompanying shudders! I guess by now you know I'm not a computer person. Thanks Janet.

If you are using MS Internet Explorer, you can create your own custom link button to the AirForum portal page. Here is how it is done:
  1. First check to make sure your MS Internet Explorer toolbar is unlocked (go to the "View" menu and choose "Toolbars" to make sure it is unlocked).
  2. Navigate to the page you want to create a button for (i.e, AirForum portal page).
  3. Go to the "Address" box at the top of your browser page. You should see the url string: http://www.airforums.com. Just to the left of the url, still inside the address box, is a small icon. It may be a rivet or it may be the MS IE icon. When you hover your mouse pointer over the icon, your mouse pointer icon should change from a black arrow to a white hand. This is an indicator that you are in the right place.
  4. Single click on the icon with the left mouse button and hold it down while you drag and drop the url string on top of the "Links" bar at the top of your browser page. If you have never used the "Links" bar before, you may need to first expand it by pulling to the right on the vertical bar next to the "Links" word.
  5. Viola! You now have a custom link which will take you directly to the portal page when you single click on it!
  6. The last thing to do, if you unlocked your toolbar in step #1, go back and lock it again.
I hope you find this helpful!

Another way to surf

Another easy way to surf the forums is to open 2 windows. You can start with the portal page, then right click on wherever you want to go, then click on "open link in new window". This leaves the portal page window open for the next place you want to go.
