A suggestion would be to allow access to the forum from Libronix homepage or with a link made at the top.  Dont know if this is a wise suggestion, but something to consider.  Any others have comments?

Well, I restarted my computer and found I was still logged in to the forum!  So why not have a link in the Homepage...

I have placed a link into the "Favorites" bars of my browsers - Opera, IE, Firefox, etc.  I visit the forums/newsgroups far more often than I need to visit the Logos home page.

Blessings,

A link does not need to be on the homepage.  It could be on the tool bar...it could open up in the Libronix window or it could open up the browser that one uses...

Yes, you are right.  I have a shortcut also which works perfectly.  The suggestion was to have a link in Libronix.  We all have lots of links to lots of different places and in the future I suspect we will have even more links.  Favorite folders are created for that reason.  So what is easy begins to get a bit more time consuming to locate, find, click.  The suggestion is to have a link in Libronix.  That way we open Libronix, use the program and periodically when we want, we can click the link and check the forum.

Who needs a shortcut?  I visit this enough that I simply open a tab and type "comm" and down-arrow, <enter> and I'm off to the races.  If you really REALLY want a shortcut, why not put it in your favorites rather than on your desktop where you have to look for it.  If you make a "Logos" folder and change the name of the shortcut to "Forums", it would be very easy to find.

I agree wholeheartedly.

Customizing your toolbar to have a link might be a good solution for you.

You all seem to miss the point.  On the homepage there are links to Logos blogs.  This is a suggestion forum...the suggestion is to also add a link to the forum.  Yes one can create custom toolbars...but most users will never understand how to do that.  My idea was a suggestion.  Logos can think it good or bad.  It is for them to decide.  Nothing more needs to be said.

Tomorrow I'll post on a method to create a toolbar called "Wash dishes."  Big Smile

If you have your history working on your browser all you need to do is to type in "comm", not even www.comm."

I see that a link to the forums has been added to the top of every Logos website. Perhaps in a few days Libronix update will have a new version of the home page available for download.Yes
