Navigating through a forum

    Is there a simple way of moving from the thread one is currently reading to the next or to the previous one in the forum, without going via the forum menu?

    Hi @Geoff Thomas

    You can use the breadcrumb navigation at the top and bottom of the page to take you to the sub-forum, main forum landing page, and the Community home page, for example:

    If you prefer, you can select forums or threads that you wish to watch by clicking on the Watch Forum or the Watch Thread buttons:

    upload_2015-10-27_13-56-38.png

    This will save all the forums or threads that you have selected so that you can view them the next time you visit the forums by clicking the My Forums and My Threads buttons in the sub-navigation bar in the top right-hand corner under your username:

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks Rosaline, but not really.

    My question was about moving smoothly through a forum which I have already entered.

    You're welcome @Geoff Thomas.

    You can't move from one thread to another without going back to the forum landing page. You could open a new tab for each thread that you want to read in your browser and then flick between those tabs to read each thread. There is no function to click into a new thread after reading the current one you have open.

    Thanks again for the reply.

    If anybody is looking for possible improvements, maybe you could add this to the list.
