Was there a change to the forum?

Specs: several
About a week ago I started noticing that after I post a
reply here, the view goes back to the top of the page
instead of displaying what I just posted, at the bottom.
Was that a change here? If so, was it intentional?

Hello Jeff Root,

There have been no changes on our end here. Its never gone to the bottom for me. Its always just reloaded the page at the top.

Thanks!
Justin

Same for me. Always goes to top. (That's been one of my pet peeves about this forum)

That, and the fact that it says "Return To Post" after a post has been edited. It doesn't return to the post, it returns to the thread.

Funny that I have this vague memory that until a couple of
weeks ago, it was returning to the point on the page where
I had been, which is generally near the bottom.

Ditto exactly about "post" versus "thread".

I believe the confusion is in HOW you post a reply.

If you simply Reply, I believe just go back to the thread.

If you preview it before posting you get three option:

Confirm and See post
Confirm Post and Go Back to forum
Preview Further Changes

Not completely sure of this.

Nope, even if you select the top choice: Confirm and See Post
you still go back to the top of the thread.
