Getting Around Africam

I'd like to see a drop-down menu at the bottom of the page that would allow me to go from the Wateringhole to the Campfire to the Streaming Cam Database without always having to scroll up to the top of the page.  I keep the standard 30 posts per page setting so it's a ways up there when I want to switch forums.  I have been on other sites that have this option.  I don't know how difficult it would be to add that feature, but I would find it helpful.

Tourneyman, Wild Dreamer, you've got some good suggestions, and I'm probably going to use one or both for now.  But I always have the two cams up in pop-ups and the Wateringhole up.  When it's quiet on the cams I'm often doing other things, checking e-mail or other sites, listening to music, etc.  So I don't want to have too many pages open at once here to look up an animal in the database or something.  I would simply like to have a way to  move from one forum to another without all the scrolling.  I'm on a laptop, and if my mouse died, it would be a real headache to scroll.  If "Admin" is unfamiliar with what I'm talking about or doesn't understand my description, I could PM a website that has this feature.  It's quite helpful.

Maddie, I will try and explain how I handle this. I am not good at directions so bear with me LOL.  I am not sure which systems or whatever provide this capability but when I open the page for the Forum I go to Active Discussions. Then I Right Click on the topic or thread I want and choose Open in New Tab. Then I do the same thing with each page I want quick access to. That way I can have just one page open at a time, but quickly go from one page to the next by clicking on the tabs at top. I hope this makes sence ..but maybe someone else would be able to explain it better. I love the Tab feature and don't know I lived without it before.  Of course I also do not know how I lived with Commordore 64 either ..inside joke for those of us that have a few years beyond Windows   Wink

Hi maddie.  I find the most helpful way to get around africam forum and keep updated with new posts is to have the recent activity page as a link on my browser tool bar.  Here is the link you can make as a bookmark and place on your toolbar. click here  it can also be found at the top of the main forum page as "active discussions"  Hope this helps.
