Lack of interest Make thread title a link to the thread itself

#1
Hello.

Currently we can get a link to a thread by right-clicking the date of it's creation below thread title. It looks a little bit strange to me that thread title itself is not a link, but thread starting date is.

Can you exchange things or additionally make thread title a link to the thread?

I know this is in suggestions but you can achieve this with a simple template edit.

Open the thread_view template.

Find this on the second line:
HTML:
<xen:h1>{$thread.title}</xen:h1>
Replace with this:
HTML:
<xen:h1><a href="{xen:link threads, $thread}">{$thread.title}</a></xen:h1>
This does exactly the same as clicking the thread creation date so it is a bit superfluous in that respect.

I posted is as a template modification also for future reference: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/change-thread-titles-in-thread-view-into-url-links.8585/

I must be missing the point of the modification. Why have a link to the topic you are already in? Is this just to refresh the topic if there was a new post while you were reading other posts?

To refresh the page, open in another window or to copy-n-paste.

When Xenforo gets Live Topics, the first reason will no longer be needed.

I get the page refresh reason.
The default link behaviour is "open in the same window", so it wouldn't open in a new window.
Copy-n-paste doesn't really require a refresh, but I can see wanting to refresh just in case of a content edit change by another poster.
