Is there a way when looking at a forum message to   select another message (backing out for the message) within the forum rather than coming out of the forum completely and starting again


Congratulations on the new website

forum breadcrumbs

Hi Phill,

There do seem to be a few problems with the forum pages as they stand, both to do with the layout of the individual pages, and also that forum posts don't have "breadcrumbs" at the top to show where they sit in the hierarchy of forum topics. We're using a standard Drupal forum implementation, but it seems rather rough around the edges.

At the moment, clicking "back" on your browser sometimes works, but it's no replacement for a proper breadcrumb at the top. I'm trying to figure out at the moment how much needs to be done, but I fear some of this involves rewriting their code... From what I can see, Drupal's forum implementation has code which is intended to produce a breadcrumb, but it isn't doing anything particularly useful at the moment...
