Why did I think of that?

We have a page top button, how about a page bottom button?

Just curious.

       Never felt like I needed one. You?

       Nah, just curious.Maybe useful for lengthy ideas and anno's, author etc.. that's all.(and it may be a first.However I'm sure someone will find a link to this)

       I do use a "page bottom" function on particularly long postings to see the most recent annotation. On IE6, CTRL+End does the job. CTRL+Home takes you to the top of the page.

       Odd, I have IE6 and don't need to press CTRL. Just End. Quite easy, and used at least whenever I check up on Blackholeapult or Roaming Fish Ball.

       Yep, he's right. I just carried over an old habit that happened to work. Cool, look at all the keystrokes I'll save!

       I'm with you on that [half] is it not possibile, instead of buttons to simply curser a link?   

       [World'eer] I have no idea where IE6 is,I see the alphabet in front of me, I press these buttons and"Wooha" I'm here.   

       I must learn more.
skinflaps, Jan 14 2005
  

       I suppose that someone smarter than me could write a browser add-in that adds a button to do the "go to the bottom of the page" thing if you need to use the mouse and jutta doesn't add such a link to the hb.   

       Opera has "mouse gestures". I don't remember if one of them does this.

       The HTML code for adding a 'page bottom' link is about 2 lines of code.

       [skin] IE6 just means Internet Explorer, version 6, which is the type of internet browser I use. Go to a long page, press "end" (it's near the letters, over the arrows) and see if that works for you.

       Given that single-key commands exist for jumping to the beginning of a page, can anyone think of a reason to keep that "top of the page" link? I remember someone asking for it originally, but I don't really use it and wouldn't miss it if it were gone. Maybe we should just have told that person about the generic "home" key and left it at that.

       What goes up must come down, so I'm told.
skinflaps, Jan 15 2005
  

       Main Index is more useful for the reasons stated.

       How about a fiberfill button?

       Works with OS X on safari on iBook too - fn + home/end/pg up/pg dn (cursor keys). I like the notion of an idea that suggests adding something to the halfbakery and gets something else lopped off instead.

       You weren't the only one who did that.

       Hey! Where did [Rods Tiger] go? And who's this [Ian Tindale] impostor?
wagster, Jan 17 2005
  

       Well, you know the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde...
hippo, Jan 17 2005
  

       Ha! Dr. Tiger and Mr. Tindale.
wagster, Jan 17 2005
  

       Call it the "Vernon" button.
