Ability to return to previous level link

If I've been on a particular forum leaving a few reply's / posts in say, "C / C++ Programming" in the C / C++ section, and I want to return to the C / C++ forum list I have to either click the back button a hundred times or click on the "Messageboard Home" link and navigate back to the C / C++ section. Would it not be better to add each sections link in the "Current area" links? It would make for much easier navigation.

so [blue]"HOME -> Messageboard Home -> C / C++ Programming"[/blue]
would become [blue]"HOME -> Messageboard Home -> C / C++ -> C / C++ Programming"[/blue]...etc

Thanks

    Certainly gets my vote, I've thought about the same thing but never got round to commenting on it.

    Good point!

    I will try to get that into the system.

    The only issue I have with it is that the line:

    Current area: HOME -> Messageboard Home -> Comments on this site -> Post a reply

    Can become quite long and perhaps line wrap into two lines, perhaps need a way to make it shorter..... Or always make it on two lines?

    The "Post Reply", "Preview Message"..etc parts could be removed. I mean I know I'm posting a reply so I don't need that line to tell me so. There is a header saying so.

    The line would then read:

    [black]Current area: HOME -> Messageboard Home -> Programmers Heaven -> Comments on this site.[/black] As the example I showed in my previous post. etc..

    I can't see that it will get too long seeing as you'd be removing the "Post Reply" and adding in an extra link or two.

    Something to ponder. :)

    [red]edit: You could place it on two lines or you could perhaps move the 'HOME' link to another location such as the nav bar at the left.[/red]

    Here is another suggestion:
    You could also add a few more back buttons. One that goes up 5 posts and one that goes 10 posts. This way users can go up much quicker and the header won't get cluttered too much.
