Bad "Home" link

Post by tetsujin » Wed May 17, 2017 12:43 pm

The "Home" link on the forum leads to http://www.starshipmodeler.net/talk3 - which results in a 404 error. "Board Index" and other links seem to be OK.

Also this isn't a question. Sorry.

Thank you! For a while I was afraid I may be stuck here because the board wouldn't let me go home (particularly worrisome when you're being told your home could not be found).

That's home. Where do you want it to go? It's configurable, but not easily.

I'm hazard to guess users will expect it to point to the website home ( http://www.starshipmodeler.com ) rather than forum index page. Similarly the home icon at the page header should probably point to the website home (as in the previous version of the forum).

And that's where it used to go to, the SSM.com home page.

Ah. I'm not sure I ever hit it. The boards have no knowledge of the other sites. I'll look into changing it. Like I said, it's not configurable, so I have to dig into the source.
