After marking forums read

    Whenever you mark the forums read (not a single forum, the whole forum) via the nav bar at the top it takes you away from the page you were on and takes you to the forums page. Why does it change the location? Wouldn't it be better to return the user to the page they were on?

    Personally, no.

    I feel it would make more sense to return the person to the page they were on. They were on a particular page for a purpose.

    Almost a year later, I'm returning to this question. Is it possible to make a quick hack to reload the current page?

    You can edit /library/XenForo/ControllerPublic/Forum.php line 901

    change from
    return $this->responseRedirect(

    return $this->responseMessage(
    Note that it is not recommended to change core files but you requested it...

    [Edit] I guess this doesn't actually refresh the page, just lowers the success message saying the board has been read. Refreshing the page would take a little bit more work.

    Change the lines Daniel mentions above to this:
            $link $this->_request->getHeader('Referer');
            if (!
    $link) {
    $link XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('forums');
    Shouldn't be too hard to build into an add-on so it survives upgrades.
