Please add a link to the main website

Post by vanowm » 2019-09-11, 22:45

There are 3 links to the index page of this forum: logo, "Forum index" links on top and bottom of the each page, but there is ZERO links anywhere to www.palemoon.org

I don't know why most if not all forum software set default logo link to forum's index page instead of site's main page, but from I can see in latest phpBB demo under board settings there is:
Main website URL:
If specified, a link to this URL will be prepended to your board’s breadcrumbs and the board logo will link to this URL instead of the forum index. An absolute URL is required, e.g. http://www.phpbb.com.
Thanks.

I don't care what phpBB thinks is "proper", but this forum is not a "sub" of the main website and doesn't belong in the breadcrumbs.

I'm sure it can be adjusted in the template, but not having a link to the main website isn't good either.

The link to www.palemoon.org used to live in the forum header, didn't it?

Yes it did, before the forum software was updated.

It would be great if that was reinstituted.

I'll make you a deal, @vanowm: You change your avatar to something less freaky and I'll add the link to the header ;)

Moonchild's on vacation for a month so might take a while for this. Also, thanks for officially bringing Master Password+ to PM after my request on Github :thumbup:

I think there won't be a link on the header.

Thank you, now this is so much more user friendly, even redundant "new tab" link included... :thumbup:
But you know what would be in "wow" category? Having the same top tabs/menu as on main website...this forum would look so much as part of the family rather then that uncle Bub you've never met before.

P.S.
Too bad we can't request same thing for Phoebus, because you know, it's forbidden...
