To get to where? i.e. what sections of the forum do you browse. You could just bookmark those sections directly. If you regularly browse these forums like I do, you find the "View posts since last visit" link just above the forums on the index page incredibly useful (it appears after you log in)

Since these forums run on phpBB they only support the features that phpBB provides. And phpBB doesn't look like it supports collapsible sections, not without hacks anyway - http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &p=3166960.

As you see we use open surce forum software which we are loathe to tinker with as it makes updates from the source difficult to implement.
