    The breadcrumbs are the things at the top of the page that look like this right now:

    Mac Forums > Mac Community > Suggestion: Repeat Your Breadcrumbs

    I'd like to see them repeated at the bottom of the page too.

    When you submit a reply, the redirect takes you to the bottom of the page. To get back to the topic list, you have to scroll back up to the top of the page to click "Mac Community" to return to the topic list. Repeat the breadcrumbs at the bottom, and it will be faster for us.

    I've started implementing this on the forums I run, and our visitors love it.

    They need to be moved up a bit, and seperated off from the text below them. They are pretty easy to glance over at the moment...

    There's a trade-off involved, as there so often is. Making the breadcrumbs at the bottom more obvious (bigger, more space, etc.) adds to the height of the page, making more scrolling necessary. Those who aren't interested in those shortcuts might prefer things as they are now.

    Tips:
    Using the bubble [​IMG] to close the Posting Rules box saves you some display space and brings the breadcrumbs closer to the bottom of the page.

    With a single key combination (Command-uparrow or Command-downarrow), you can go to the top or bottom of the page to find the other breadcrumbs.​

    Too bad that isn't vB. I don't think MR can copy that design can it.

    I haven't edited my vB yet, but I'm 100% it can be done... Quickly.

    No big deal. This thread is already longer than it needed to be. I saw a place for suggestions... I thought I'd throw it out there.
