I follow the forum by clicking on Todays Posts,after viewing a post I find that on going back to Todays Posts it always takes me back to the top of the page and then I have to scroll down to select the next post on other forum it takes you back to the point at which you left is there any way this could be changed on KF or is it down to the way I am using it?

Not sure about this Victor but..... could it be the database, assuming someone else has posted in between you reading a thread has updated to to the "latest post"? therefore this becomes the newest "today's post?"

I am sure Thravad will tell me off if I am wrong :P

No I don't think so, it does not matter where you start from on KF when you go back you always go back to the top of the page . On other forums you go back to where you left the page I just tested it out on here and another forum.
It is has always puzzled me but never thought to mention it before.

when you go off a thread and back to todays posts it quite often shows a new post or a new thread. If its a new post on an old thread every thing will have move insquence anyway.

Going back Todays posts ensures that you dont miss anything new.

I think there is a way of book marking posts that you have posted on and want to be informed of any further posts.

I use Opera, and by clicking "Back" in Opera, I get taken back to where I was, whether that was the top, middle or bottom of the Todays Post page...

I only click Todays Posts if I've posted something, or want to refresh the page...

Don't know about FF or IE though...

Could it be a cookie issue?

Yep you are correct it is something to do with Firefox. :clap)

Had not thought of trying IE so did and it does work OK.

Now how do I fix that? confused2

Use Opera, Victor. :D:P

Not a clue, I only use FF for Quidco and King.com, and it performs exactly how you describe on both sites.

Opera is best. ;)

Silly thing is it only seems to be happening on KF.
