Return To Page On Log In

Postby ag0044 » Mon Aug 03, 2009 5:47 pm

Chuck,

I don't know if this is possible, but I would find it convenient and others may do so too.

I'm watching a topic on this forum. I get an email to say that there's a new message in that topic. I click the link in the email, and get taken to the message. Simple, easy.

However, if I then click on the log in link at the top of the page and log in, I get taken to the front page of the forum and have to navigate back to the topic (I know, it's only two or three clicks). Would it be possible on log in, to be returned to the page you were viewing just before you logged in? While I could have my forum preferences set to log in automatically, I prefer to not do that.

Or, have I missed a preference somewhere? (Always highly possible!)

Thanks,


Rory

As far as I know, there is no preference I (as admin) can set to do what you ask. There is something you might try, though. After you log in, hit the back button to go to the thread you were on. If it doesn't recognize you as logged in, try reloading the page. I know this method works for me on other forums.

Chuck,

Yes, that worked. Should have tried it before asking the question!

Thanks,
