I use reload() method for location object and I did something like this:

The problem is my page is really long and when I do the reload it will bring user back to the top of the page. Is there any way the reload will not bring the user back to the top?

Thanks in advance for the help.

You would have to find a JavaScript code that will remember the user's scroll position on the page. Only real way around that issue other than looking into Ajax.

I agree. Here's the link:
