Is it possible to have a return to top button at the bottom of topics in the forum? In long conversations it's a lot of scrolling.

Just a suggestion :)

There's a note on my "to-do" list which says I should be adding paging to forums so that would reduce the amount of scrolling.

But here's a freebie for you...

In any web page, not just here, you can press Ctrl-Home to jump straight to the top of the page. Ctrl-End will take you all the way to the bottom. No scrolling required.

(If you've clicked in the "Post a Comment" box, then the Ctrl-Home/Ctrl-End will take you to the top or bottom of the comment that's being typed - so you'd have to click somewhere else on the page and then do Ctrl-Home to scroll to the top of the page)

It's a keyboard shortcut that most applications will respond to.

Want to get to the top of a Word document? Ctrl-Home.
Want to get to the bottom of a PDF document? Ctrl-End.
Want to get to the bottom of the Greek debt crisis? You're on your own.

I don't even use the CTRL part. HOME takes me to the top, END takes me to the bottom.

So it does!

The Ctrl bit is for applications like Word where just Home on its own will take you to the start of the line. I'm so used to using editors of that sort that I automatically think Ctrl-Home is for getting to the top of the page.

I think that's a combination of F9 & F1 for the Greek crisis.
