I no longer see shortcut links to the top forums when looking at a post

I follow the admin's invitation to comment on the new site.

I noticed that I no longer see the links to four top forums (Programming, Unix for advanced users, shell programming, ...) once I entered a forum, or further reading a thread. These links were very handy returning back to the forum once I drilled down into a thread and especially when I am on 2nd, 3rd, etc pages of the thread.

Yes, the legacy "bread crumbs" are disabled and will like not return to the forums. Modern day web sites do not use "navigation bread crumbs" and we are also moving away from them.

As we modernize and upgrade the site, a lot of very legacy "rigid-style tables and bulletin-board code" will be removed and replaced with state-of-the-art HTML 5 and Javascript code. No modern day site using "bread crumbs" for navigation in the navbar.
