New forum interface, no next previous navigation

Phenom

When viewing a topic/thread I can find no way to navigate to the next or previous topic/thread.

Having to navigate back to the list and find next unread topic is a PITA.

Not quite what you asked for, but if you control-click the topic, it opens in a new tab, making things a bit easier at least.

 

Also, at least for me, I'm only interested in some of the topics, using next/previous would have me visiting a lot of topics that are of no interest to me.

 

Hope this helps,

Hello @Thomas999, @agrivas,

 

As an alternative for using "CTRL+LMB", you can alos simply use your middle mouse button, and the link will open in a new tab, (while my left hand is still supporting my head Smiley Happy ). Took me quite some time before I found out, but would never want to mis it again.

 

Kind regards,

One thing I find a PITA is that the thread title is not replicated on every post like it used to be.

I use RSS Feed Reader to see new posts and when I click one it takes me directly to that post which will be at the end of the subject. When there are several threads I'm following that are similar in nature I have to scroll to the top to see which one it is. This gets more annoying when it gets to more than one page as I have to page back first then scroll to the top, then page forward again, scroll to the bottom. All just to get the context of the post.

If the thread title was replicated on each post or in a panel at the end of the thread that would be a real help.

My mouse also has functionality on bending the mousewheel left or right which i use for pageback and pageforward, and i have my browser set op open each link in a new tab.
