    Just thought I would put forth the idea of the header of this forum including the forum menu could be fixed at the top, so it would stay in position whilst scrolling down through posts.

    Great idea! I often find myself scrolling back up to see what the thread was about. Then having realigned myself with the topic, scrolling back down to reread what I read. This would really help with my early Alzheimer's...

    What you can do is look in the URL address bar... The thread title is there and usually pretty easy to read. This is what I do all the time.

    "http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/62407-Idea-Fix"
    Visible part of URL. Not particularly informative. Of course you can scroll to see more, but that's sub-optimal.

    Depends on what browser you're using. On all the browsers I use, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, I can see the entire URL:

    http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/62407-Idea-Fixed-header

    Even longer links work too:

    Can't see the link on my IPad. Works for my desktop, but just realized why I was having problems now that I am on my IPad. Generic title "Teslamotorclubs.com".
