Latest forum topic access

I have an annoying problem when reading the forum topics and then going back to the full list page with the latest threads. Usually I can click the back arrow just once to return to the list page. Sometimes it takes two clicks to get to the page. Occasionally, it will take 8 clicks on the back arrow!!! And once in a great while 8 clicks will take me back to a blank page. As I said it is just annoying - not a problem. This seems to be a random thing. I never know when it will take more than the normal 1 click to go back to the list!! I am NOT tech savvy - which may be my biggest problem.

I set a bookmark for the landing page on the forums that I first want to go to - in my case "All Bambi Models". You could do something similar and then be able to go back to the beginning with one click.

On a side note if you click on the User CP link in the blue bar (on the top left), look to the right and you will see a link in the blue bar to all of your subscribed topics. Any new postings to those topics will be in bold. You can also select the type of notification you want for subscribed threads - I usually choose "No Email Notification" so my inbox doesn't get cluttered.

I suspect this may varies widely depending on the browser you are using. I do not see anything of this nature using Fire Fox. FF returns me to the original post I was reading that gave me a link. One tap of the back button returns me to the post.

One thing that sometimes is annoying and sometimes not is that if I am subscribed to a tread, say the Canopener, and a new tread reference it. If I click on the link it will take me to the last post I read on the Canopener tread. That can be several posts from the most recent post and forces me to read all post to bring me up to date.

Even if I leave a Tab for another open Tab if I go back to the Forum I still retain all previous pages used in that Tab.

Re: Web page navigation tips

Tip: If you are using a PC, on the Web page with the list of topics, RIGHT CLICK on the post you wish to view. Then, select "Open link in new tab" to open a new window. When done viewing, close that window and return to the window that contains your original list of topics.

Alternately, you can RIGHT CLICK on the orange box with the left facing arrow to open the first post in the thread; or, RIGHT CLICK on the orange box with the arrow pointing to the right, in the "Last Post" column, to open the latest thread entry.

I have always used a different method to get back to the list. I either hit the 'PORTAL PAGE' box at the upper left or the 'AIRSTREAM TRAILER AND MOTORHOME OWNERS COMMUNITY' tab at the bottom of the page. This way, you get a refreshed list with new entries. By just back clicking, you get the same list as you came from without any new entries.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but you can return to the list of new threads by clicking on the Portal button near the top left corner of your screen.
