    Default Thread Footer Modification - Continue Lasing...

    Good Day,

    I was wondering about adding a link to the footer code of threads, specifically a link to return to "New Posts" or "Home". To be quite honest I have been trying to click on such a link after clicking the "Continue Farking" link on the bottom of Fark.Com threads. It may be a bad idea, but I thought I would put the idea out there.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Sorry about my delay in replying to this thread, I've had some other heady nonsense around here to deal with.

    That being said; I'm on it.

    I went to fark and tried to find this feature you are talking about so I could investigate how it works and how to hack-up the template's here to make it happen but was specifically unable to find what you are talking about...

    So, please provide specifics so I can go about making this happen.

    Thanks.

    My take on it is - Beneath the last post in each thread is a button marked .
    Would it be possible to have one next to it marked which would carry out the same function as clicking on New Posts from the top bar.
    This would save scrolling back up the page (on long threads) to see what's new.

    I have made clickable (above) to show what I mean.

    Of course not.
    But the forum settings mean I can't set the link to post in the same Window.
    But Admin's a smart lad and he'll know what we mean.

    Here is an example thread (they only appear on discussion threads): http://forums.fark.com/cgi/fark/comm...?IDLink=383408
    and in true fark fashion shamelessly hotlinked : .

    I forgot to say, scroll to the bottom to see the link, theirs simply returns them to the index page.
