When you post there is a + box which says attachments and other options. You can turn on notifications or return to the topic. There are other options for staff members too.
Sorry, I think you might have misunderstood what I meant. Normally, when you go to post for the first time on a thread, it will only give you the Post and Preview buttons. If you go back at a later time, it will give you a Save and Cancel button. What I was meaning is that the Save button when editing a post will take you back to the same thread that you were in before, but will refresh it including your updated post. When creating a new thread, if you select Post it takes you out of the thread you were in back to the main page of the forum that you were posting in causing you to have to click on your thread again in order to return to what you had just created.
Ultimately, what I was suggesting is implementing a way to have the Save button included on a new post which would allow us to return to our thread instead of the forum prior to avoid having to click on and return to our thread. I know it doesn't really take a lot of effort for us to have to do this, but would help if we were monitoring our thread real-time in order for us to respond faster and more efficiently with others.
I have included a couple of screenshots below to show what I am talking about.
When creating a new post, we are given options like shown below:
Here is when editing posts. It gives us a Save button that will take us back to the same thread.
I don't know, the only reason I suggested it is for convenience for those posting on the forums. Again, it doesn't take a lot of effort to click back on the thread in order to view/refresh it so that we can see new posts. Not meaning to make it a lazy feature that would return us to the same thread. I just thought it may be handy so that we can return and respond to others if the thread is active as opposed to having to select to open it again or have to push it off in its own tab.
I also use the Notify feature which is great too and glad it is there. Just thought this may help for those that hang out here on the forums.
Thanks again for your reply Spatry!
