    Is it possible to have a “Create New Topic” link fixed at the TOP of the Forum? Have a feeling new users may be having a problem finding out how to Create a New Topic.

    You know, I hadn’t even noticed that… I’m sure there used to be a link at the top, it must have changed. Whereabouts is the New Topic link now please? I can’t see it on the Forum page…

    Hi Kate, Go into the forum section you want to post in ie Home & Garden – you can see all the forum sections when you hover your mouse over the word Forum at the top of the page – Once in the relevant section, scroll to the bottom of the page where the New topic box is sited, you can post from there :yes:

    Well hidden – I think we have now established the need for a clearer link at the top of the forum to stimulate more forum topics being created.

    Hello

    It’s not possible to add a create new topic button onto the all forums page or navigation menu, the problem lays with not being able to target the specific forum to post in.

    It is possible to create a link on the top of each forum section which would then scroll you to the bottom of the page to the post a new topic box but I’m not sure how helpful this would be? :scratch:

    I think that (your second paragraph) would be a helpful halfway house.

    BTW, haven’t you been away? Shouldn’t you be relaxing rather than diving straight back in to work?

    At the very top of the forums home page there is a Hello New Members post which stays in that listing position all the time, the next post is for the Forum Policy, why not make the third post a How to Create New Topic post and keep it in the third slot?

    Thank you for the feedback I will implement both of those suggestions.
    It’s on the ‘to do’ list for tomorrow.

    Thank you :good:

    Yes I returned from whence I came (spoken in true middle earth tongue) today. I’m just trying to catch up with little bits as I’m not firing on all cylinders from lack of sleep on the ferry. So it’s just planning for now but tomorrow I will battle on.

    Hiya.

    I’ve created a new super sticky video guide on how to create a new topic.
    https://unitedinbrittany.com/topic/how-to-create-a-new-forum-topic/

    A forum list has also been added to the sidebar of the main forums index page. That way members can easily navigate to their desired forum as well as seeing the most recent posts.

    I hope this helps. B-)
