    ...to get you back to the "Show Your Posts" page directly from the page that appears when you have made a post or posted a reply? I find no direct link once I'm there, and I cannot get back to the previous Show Your Posts page by pushing the back button. It just keeps going to the same page with the new post/reply.

    This would save me time and remove temptation to stay and read more. [​IMG] When my time is limited I try to go directly to the Show Your Posts page to read & perhaps respond to prior conversations. But once I've posted I have to go back to "Recent Posts" and scroll down to the bottom to get back to my "Show Your Posts" page. And there's always such interesting, often such compelling post titles there that I am tempted to take the time to read them.

    I hope that someone who knows more about setting up computer programs than me (most people do) can change this. Otherwise I find this site the easiest, most convenient, best organized & arranged online forum I've ever seen! Thank you!

    If you are having the problem I think you are having, try double clicking on the back arrow. Sometimes I get hung up trying to go back and have to double click to get out.

    We've looked into this, but the problem is that everyone wants to go to different places after they have made their post. Also, it is a good idea to make sure your post came out as you wanted it after you make the post before moving on. For these reasons we've left the redirect the way it currently is.

    I agree- I want a button at the top menu, too, not just at the bottom, some of the time...It's a wonderfully well-used tool for many of us, and you have room up there, Nifty! You know you want to! All the cool kids are doing it!

    ETA:

    This way it wouldn't be a redirect, but just an easy option for those of us that use the 'show your posts' so frequently.

    Sorry, I think I misread the suggestion / question.

    The links at the top are already pretty cramped and we opted for adding the "Recent Posts" since most members are using that link. We'll put adding 'show your posts' on the list of suggestions!
