So, you are reading a thread and you want to go back to the main forums list. Instead of clicking on the Home tab or the Forums tab at the top, look in two places.

Just above the first post in the thread, and right above the Edit Your Prifile, you should see this:

SailboatOwners.com > Shared Forums > Site Talk
[Lancer 25] Some neat tricks within the forums

If you click on Site Talk, it will take you back to the Site Talk thread list and will update the list.

If you click on Shared Forums, it will take you to the Shared Forums list and will update the list.

If you click on SailboatOwners.com, it will take you back to all the available forums.

Just below the last post in the thread, and below Post Reply, you will see the same links.

If you use your backspace key to go back to the previous page, your page will not be updated. It is better to click on the links mentioned.

If you want to come straight to the forums and bypass the home page (heaven forbid ;)) then modify the url in the address bar. Insert the work "forum" after http://

Example:

I use LancerOwners.com as my home base. You may use Hunter, or Oday, or Catalina... The address for me is http://lancer.sailboatowners.com/ and it takes me to the home page. If I put forums before lancer, http://forums.lancer.sailboatowners.com/ then I come straight to the forums page.

As we move on, I will list more tricks for easier navigation within the forums.

Fair winds and following seas.

Brian, thanks for that great tip...

...on clicking on the path in the box below the tabs. I would not have figured that one out. Keep those ideas coming. Thanks for making time to help users get the most out of this great site!
