Default Original Post Always Shown

Something that has bugged me is that when i am going through some post or something like a nice model in showcase or something i need to have like 2 tabs open to go back and forth to look at the post.

Why not have the original post always shown at the top of each page?
Perhaps implement this in certain sections of the site as the enclave would not need use of this feature.

But im sure the conversion board and other ones could use it to great effect.

To some extent you've got a good point but it would require a lot of work to implement it into the forum's software. I've seen topics linked to on the top of every page in an SMF forum (normally anouncements and forum rules) but this isn't what you're wanting.
This is a generally good idea but what's wrong with having a couple of open tabs?

I have to agree with Sorck and add that I think it might actually be more aggravating in most threads where there's a conversation going, like a thread that's more than 2 pages...

IMO it would actually be anoying in threads such as the showcase as often there are some very large images in the first post which you wouldn't want to download each time you viewed a page in the topic (for those who don't have a large download limit or have a 56kb modem)

Hmm. Perhaps keep it an option not to use it in your profile?

Have to enable it to use it?

I dont see how it would be a problem since it would just be a single post from the OP.

Yes, that is the only major problem with this. If FT could code it then we could have it added

Yes, that would be a good idea as then people who want to use it can use it

Aren't you suppoesed to read the whole thread anyway??

Now in showcase would it not give people an incentive to just go to the second page and read post the same comment that 5 people in the first page talked about?

If it is done it should be defaulted to off so that we do not get a thread in here every week that the first post is showing up twice as an error.
