Log out of a thread and you should be dumped... ...where?

    So as admin I am wanting to look at threads as admin and then as guest

    I keep getting dumped back in the forum list view and have to navigate to get back to the thread I was looking at..

    Is that normal?

    In VB you get that message - "you will be returned to the page you were viewing"

    Am I expreiencing a bug or a feature? :whistle:

    Obviously my admin perspective isnt the traditional user one..

    Any how

    Looking for words of wisdom..

    What functionality are you referring to?

    well, I log out of a thread on Xenforo and get dumped back at the forum list (when I would rather remain on the same page, just logged out..)

    But I might be missing that this is somehow better for the user experience..

    What do you mean by "log out of a thread"?

    You can only log out of the forum.
    In which case you will be returned to the forum index.

    I see what he's talking about.

    When you're still logged in, while viewing a thread, and you decide to log out [on that very same thread]. You're not going back to the thread in question. You're going back to the forumhome.
    Not a bug.

    I have an add-on for this I think. Let me find it...

    yes - sorry - logging out while viewing a thread - leaves you somewhere else.

    Not where you were..

    Now, that would be odd. If you're taken back to forumhome (main forum list), it's not a bug.

    Recommending log in as user - very quick and convenient
    - though I hope Jon added the warning box top right "You are viewing as [user]" for safety.

    Also note you do need to enable admin to use this as a permission.
