If I'm in Mod Questions or Mod Requests' forums shouldn't the navbar redirect me back to a forumdisplay.php's vB 3.5 Modifications category (that lists Tutorials, Questions and Requests Forums) and not to the modifications.php's vB 3.5 Modifications category (which lists hacks/styles)? The redirects for both PHP files are pointing to the hacks/styles category.

It doesn't - It takes you to http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=109 which is the Category that all the forums are contained in :)

ok, now here's a little extra puzzle, pretty much fictional as I only did this to try it as I only browse via the new posts page

If I am on the modifications.php page and I want to look for something in the 3.5.x forums and can't find it then remember that I have seen it in the 3.0.x forums and it will still work as it is a template mod, I can't get back to modifications.php, I have to go back to the navbar and start again.

Shouldn't the modifications be included on the navbits?

Yes, and no :)

In some ways yes it should, however coding it to behave in such a way is probably not easy or achievable via plugins :)

I shall speak to stefan about it to see if theres anything we can do about it :)

Was that by design? For continuity I think it makes more sense to have the navbar redirect back to the category the user was in.
