Bugs & updates for the web:
« on: April 29, 2008, 10:29:48 AM »
Bug: You have no way back to the main site http://www.page6.org once your in the forums other than click browser back, or via address-bar, both the logo and home go to forum home.

Fix: Change the logo link to  http://www.page6.org

Updates
Add extra folders that user can post messages that are nothing to do with P6 NAU, which give users a reason to stay and come back again & again, for example:
User discussions:
   8-bit:
      For sale or free: amazon, ebay or direct
      Games
      General
      people
      Programming
      Wanted
 
   ST
      For sale or free: amazon, ebay or direct
      Games
      General
      people
      Programming
      Wanted


Also i highly reccommend the use of Tinyurl especially for links such as amazon & ebay.
Tinyurl is 100% free with a toolbar for IE and other javascript browsers.

Tinyurl extension for Mozilla Firefox:

paulhollins: Monitor Magazines ebay link (link now deceasd):
http://tinyurl.com/5umgof

As you can see they are a lot less to type, even when you write a link in ink for someone.

Bug: The TAB key does not work: it instead of padding a few spaces, jumps out of window to the next icon button!

Thanks for your suggestions.

As you can see I've implemented your suggestion such that clicking on the logo will now go back to the page6.org home page.

I note your request re adding more folders to the forum. There did in fact used to be more subject areas but they were not generally used by anyone, so were removed. Of course, if there is sufficient demand to add them back (e.g. "off topic") I would be happy to do so.

As for the tab key - can't do much about that I'm afarid as it's a feature of the SMF forum software and not a small project to change!

Regards
Paul
