An experiment we are trying. This allows us to remove the News section from the top of every forum page and tailor the portal to a version for guests and a version for members. We can highlight some helpful topics for new members as well as any other useful or interesting links.

Comments?
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Naturally I hate change!  However in the same breath I will report it was painless to click on GO TO FORUM.  Traumatic as it was I got it done......

Nice work Don!

This can probably evolve into a valuable landing page.

Not yet sure how to edit this.

 :)   You're not alone in that... That's why I tried my best to make it easy to find how to get to the normal forum topics page.

Don; I do like the link to the plan site.  How does it look moved to front and center?
