    Is it possible to insert a "Jump" Box in each forum to enable user to directly jump from one forum to another, instead of go through Lounge Lobby OR is there any other way I am not aware about? This facility is already exists within the thread.

    You could create your own 'Jump' box as a list of bookmarks:

    [attachment=86912:x.gif]
    (This is in Firefox)

    You can then select your own choice of destinations, and in the order you are most likely to visit them, and it's always at the top of your screen where you can find it....

    Or use the Go to box at the bottom of each thread.

    The original poster did say that "This facility is already exists within the thread. ", and asked about having a similar ability when viewing a forum.

    Yes, "Bookmark" is the term Firefox uses where Internet Explorer has "Favorite". So in Internet Explorer, you could add the forums you visit most to your Favorites.

    BTW, you should upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 or preferably 8. Internet Explorer 6 is much less secure.

    Something!

    I don't really use IE for much, and certainly not IE6 (except on old W2K machines). If you can, either upgrade to IE8 or switch to Firefox - I strongly recommend the latter.

    Adding a folder in IE6, and using it, is so clunky I wouldn't bother.

    In IE8, Favorites > Organise Favorites > Create a Folder

    [attachment=86946:Links1.gif]

    (You probably then have to show your entire list of Favorites and drag it to the 'Favorites Bar')

    Then, when on a page you want to add to the folder, Favorites > Add to Favorites and navigate to the correct folder:

    [attachment=86948:Links3.gif]

    or, with the chosen page on view, simply left-click-and-drag the Lounge favicon onto the folder thus:

    Done, upgrade IE6 to IE8 and installed Firefox at the same time. Composing the reply using firefox for some new experience.

    This is not the best forum to discuss Firefox addons, but while you are at it, I strongly recommend:

    Firefox issues - whether about the above add-ons or not - should ideally be in a new thread in 3rd Party Browsers.

    There may have opinion differences, but I still feel the facility should be there as an added advantage for "not very techno savy" users like me. If I recall preperly, the same was available in previous version.

    I quite agree!.... but I find that having my own 'Jump Box' always at the top of the page (on the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar) much more convenient than having to scroll down to the bottom of the page if I want to jump to a specific forum.

    [hr]
    For completeness, Instructions for Firefox:

    1] Right click on your Bookmarks Toolbar (where I have 'Lounge', Online' etc.) and select New Folder:

    [attachment=86962:FF1.gif]


    2] The following window pops up, enter in your chosen folder name (e.g. Quick Jump) and click 'Add'

    [attachment=86952:FF2.gif]


    3] Visit the Forums you want to visit frequently. In each case, left click on the Lizard favicon and drag it to the middle of the new folder. As you do, the folder is highlighted and opens, allowing you to drop the bookmark (favorite) into it:

    [attachment=86958:FF3.gif]


    then right-click the new bookmark, select properties:

    [attachment=86959:FF4.gif]


    and edit the description to suit:

    [attachment=86960:FF5.gif]

    Alternatively, when viewing the page you want to add, select Bookmarks > Bookmark this page and you can navigate to the new folder and edit the name in one hit:

    [attachment=86961:FF6.gif]

    Shouldn't take more than a minute or two....

    We always learn something when we discuss things.
