Is there a way to return to your place after reading a topic without having to retrace your steps thru the screens?
(i.e a back button)

Most of the time…


When you click a link within a LumberJocks post, it will take you to a New Tab where you can read, browse, & do anything you want… When done, Delete the TAB you are in, and you will return exactly to the LJ Post that you came from…

Is that what you were trying to do?

Well, it seems like it USED TO BE that way…
In testing it, just now, it doesn’t seem to work that way anymore…
I was able to, however, just clicking the Back arrow to eventually return to where I came from.

  • Open the main LJs screen you like to hang out in.
  • Right click and then click on “Open in new tab” on the topic you NOW want to read.
  • Then only close the right tab and you’re back to where you started

Do what HorizMike says and just remember to “refresh” that main page every once in a while so you see the new stuff that gets added.
