Topic tags/keywords: easier way to navigate a thread

May not seem like much to most of you guys, but I don’t like that when you open a thread, you have to click to see the next ## posts . . . . and then you have to click and see the next ## posts….... you get to the bottom and you have to click to see the ## previous post. Just suggesting a different option that may be a little more user friendly.

That keeps long threads from taking 20 minutes to load .

... may have to do with bandwidth. Some users are on
dial-up or other slower than broadband systems. This is
a geographic availability thing.

By restricting how much of the content must load
before the page is “done” loading, LJ’s makes it
a little easier for lower bandwidth users to get
started with their reading.

There is a better way. Just click “View All Replies” on the bottom right hand corner of the original post and it opens the thread with regular forum like pagination for browsing the thread with. Is also handy for getting to the last page of a large thread.

I like the Watch feature on the right below the OP’s topic line.

It gets you where need to be without reading what you’ve already
read.

”Just suggesting a different option that may be a little more user friendly.”

And what is that Option that you’re suggesting???

As Airframer suggested “Click on All Replies” and there they are. No need to keep on clicking.

Problem Solved!

I think you covered it MsDebbie. There is an option to get it anyway you want it and as much as you want or don’t want ;-)
