Am I the only user who has problems with this template? I use the Classic skin, and this template floats over the links to my user page, talk page, log out, preferences and help. Either move it somewhere compatible with all skins, or get rid of it please.– Tivedshambo (talk) 22:50, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree, plus the fewer icons/stuff in top-right the better, from many people's pov.
I'd primarily favour removing it. If not, or in the meantime, reverting it back to this diff, when it was on the left and at normal pagetop.

back button vs breadcrumbs[edit]

Related: Why aren't the subpage-indicator-breadcrumb links appearing, at pages like Help:Contents/Getting started? Is that a help namespace peculiarity or something? (I mean the links "up" that appear underneath the "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" at pages like Wikipedia:Community Portal/Redesign and Talk:Albert Einstein/Comments.)
If we had those, this template would probably never have been invented. --Quiddity 04:33, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Reverted. This may annoy those who like to do things the "clever" way, but please consider all skins, internet browsers etc, before changing something as visible as this template. – Tivedshambo (talk) 07:51, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
The breadcrumbs appear for me now, wonder if they've been fixed since previous comment, if so we could do away with the 'back' template on the contents subpages. Lee∴V (talkcontribs) 17:14, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
Must have been. Breadcrumbs appear properly here now, for me too. Agree with deprecation/deletion/removal. -- Quiddity (talk) 18:25, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Gareth Ous has removed from the contents sub-pages, seems to be working fine Lee∴V (talkcontribs) 15:48, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
