I tend to agree because it used to have a hop to in the bottom of the page.
Members on our forum asks why they can't hop to another forum via the menu that in some cases is at the bottom.
That does not exist anymore at the bottom of the page..
So that statement is incorrect for the current version.
The hop to with the current version was moved to a tab appearing button above a current post of a topic or reply. or when selecting a forum to view..
I can not recall if when viewing categories it was visible when viewing just one category in prior versions.
But again instead of being at the bottom of the page now a tab/ button at the top.
I think it makes more sense to be at the bottom.
So when visiting a category or forum or post you review what is available, You scroll to the bottom and want to go elsewhere.
But now you must scroll back to the top of the page to go elsewhere.
Might as well use the back button on the browser.
