Maxbimmer website navigation needs improvement



Anyone here find this a little inconvenient if not annoying ?
Say you are reading a thread and you decide to pm any of the poster on that thread. So you are then taken to a pm window, compose your pm and hit SEND. Now, if you want to go back to the original thread that you were reading, you hit the back button, which then takes you back to the pm page, signon page, then back to the original thread. Why isnt there a direct link back to the thread you were reading after sending a pm? Is it just me or Im missing something lol.

Also an index (forum sections links) at the bottom of EVERY page, whereever thread you may be IS a good feature so as to avoid hitting the back bottom just to get back to the main forum page.

that navigation is based on the VB software. perhaps the new software will change how tis works, but for now we're kinda stuck with it. just try not to hit the back button so much.

I think it's pretty much the same for all furoms that you have to do this.

I usually just use the new post function to find where I was, threads you just responded to will be at the top.
