Suggestion: Home button in the top bar

Post by wesley123 » Tue Mar 03, 2015 1:33 am

I think it might be a good idea to put a home button in the top menu.

As I notice it more and more, the use of the "back" button in the browser becomes rarer and rarer, and a rather large annoyance when you browse through a forum topic.

I notice it from myself that I navigate the site(and any site, for that matter) by going back to the home page and navigate from there, and to spam the "back" button or to scroll all the way up(which can go on for a pretty long time in Image-heavy threads) isn't really ideal.

So to navigate the website a little easier, could a home button in the top bar be implemented?

Logo = home

I think it's pretty much an accepted web design convention these days.

Personally I open the new posts page then everything I want to read in a new tab meaning I never have to use the back button or reload a home page repeatedly :) plus by the time ive read the first tab, all the others have loaded

Except the logo isn't visible when you're somewhere down a page/thread, whereas the top bar is.

The "home button" wouldn't be visible aswell in that situation lol

The only things that could cover your idea would be a floating widget or a sidebar similar to the small "social media" one
