    PLEASE read the website pages

    Loads of people tell me they never read the website pages that are on the left <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    There is loads of info on there and people don't read it - I didn't write it for fun I wrote it to help people so please read it.

    Especially the First Steps, How to cope and Symptoms pages!

    Re: PLEASE read the website pages

    I have to admit that I also have not been aware of this additional static content.

    Might I venture to suggest this is probably a consequence of design, in relation to the menus themselves, and of perception, with regard to forums generally?

    The horizontal menu is certainly more conspicuous, in terms of design and positioning, than the sidebar. The sidebar is also collapsible, which I expect has it's state remembered across sessions via a user's cookie.

    Forum-based sites are not generally regarded, at least in my view, as serving content outside of it's thread-oriented structure. Not successfully at least, not without taking on a more CMS presentational approach.

    I would place the sidebar links within a single horizontal drop-down in the header. One that expands immediately upon 'onMouseOver', so that the full scope of the site is apparent upon each use.

    The addition of a discrete announcement bar above would be invaluable in highlighting the site's static content. Left to rotate on a daily basis, and easily updated via a single config file, it could also serve news relating to new or updated content etc.

    Ultimately though, I do think keeping the forum menu and the content menu separate allows people to easily dismiss one or the other.

    You caught me in design-mode. Sorry if that's too much information.

    Thumbs up Re: PLEASE read the website pages

    Hi, Nicola. I am a brand-new member here, and I want to tell you that the website pages (I have only begun to read them) are really wonderfully written. You are knowledgeable, clear, educated, and don't talk down to us like sooooo many do who try to write about this. (And FYI, I had no trouble finding them, they jump right out to me.) Thank you!

    Jessica
