Hotposts...Could "Mark all as read" be at the bottom of the page?

That way when we have perused the page and are already 'down there' we will not have to scroll up to find the "Mark all as read" link way at the top....thanks.
How is the signing up for specific boards for Hotposts coming? If it CAN be done , that would be terrific....

  1. I think this would be a great idea and am all for it. I keep having to remind myself to hit 'home' to get to the top of the page to click 'mark as read'.

    1. Pressing "Home" once after scrolling down to the bottom of the page is really pretty easy.

        No "Home" on my Mac laptop...

        However, I tend to read Hotposts (on a per board basis) from bottom up so this is less of an issue for me.

          no "HOME" button on my computer either...

            You see, all you Mac guys should switch to a PC.


            OK, with no Home key it would indeed be really handy to have a "mark all as read" box at the bottom of the screen. Of course that would only solve your Hot Posts problem. The Home key is pretty convenient on plenty of other sites. I'm really surprised Apple doesn't have a key stroke combination that mimics Home.

              My Mac laptop has "home" and "end" keys, but I don't know how to make them work. Have tried every +combo . . .

                Someone pointed out to me that the fn + left arrow makes it go to the top of the page. But OK, I agree that having a "Mark all as read" at bottom of page would be good.

                  Thanks, Chris. That works for me, as well as fn+right arrow or "end" to go to the bottom in Firefox.

          2. My Mac laptop has Home and End keys and they work just fine in Safari.
