    When in one of the forums and one activates 'mark messages read', go back to the main forum listing instead of having to back out three pages. Thanks...

    If you mark messages read for a subforum, it returns you to the forum index. If you mark messages read for all forums, it returns you to the forum index. Is that not happening for you?

    No. for example in 'Olympus Cameras', when I click 'mark read' and then 'Olympus Cameras', it just clears all unread indications and just leaves me looking at the same page.

    That is by design. If you click mark all forums read it takes you to the forum index.

    I am just curious why you wouldn't do the same process regardless of being at the main index vs any of the subforums...

    I didn't customize anything, nor are there any settings in the software for me to change this behavior. It's as designed by XenForo.

    I'm not sure why they designed it that way. I suppose they figured that someone marking all forums read would want to look at all forums (the index) regardless of where they were before marking.

    If you want the answer straight from XenForo, you can ask them about it here: XenForo Pre-Sales Questions
