I just updated our forum to 7.6.0. As usual, my members are complaining about the changes. (We have a lot of old, retired mechanics and blue collar workers as members.) One thing they've asked about is where the GO button in the Hop To menu went to. I have no idea what they're talking about, since I never used it.

What is it? Is it gone? Do I need to reenable it?

The HTML changed in v760, instead of requiring users select a "go" button to proceed to the target forum, as soon as one is selected from the dropdown they're directed there now. If the target browser does not support javascript then a "go" button will be displayed.

This is the forum navigation system that's on the topic list and topic view pages. For comparison, here's the change from the v7.5 series that exists in the v7.6 series.

Old:
Code
<select name="board" id="board" class="form-select">
-Forum Listing-
</select>
<input type="submit" name="Jump" value="Go" class="form-button" />


New:
Code
<select name="board" id="board" class="form-select" onchange="this.form.submit()">
-Forum Listing-
</select>
<noscript><input type="submit" name="Jump" value="Go" class="form-button" /></noscript>


"Why"? Because it's a cleaner and more elegant approach.

They are complaining that they used to be able to click on the GO button and select the same forum. That no longer seems to work. If you select the same forum, you remain in the thread you were on. Should they be using Previous Thread, Next Thread instead?
