How do I find my way around tighar.org?
« on: August 22, 2009, 12:04:21 PM »

There are four big gateways into TIGHAR's website:

http://tighar.org -- The basic home page for TIGHAR.  Links to all of the projects and other sections of the website.

http://tighar.org/news -- The news area (or news 'n' views--potential for blogs yet to be developed.).

https://tighar.org/smf/index.php -- The Forum.  Where you are now, I think.

http://tighar.org/wiki/Ameliapedia -- The Ameliapedia.  It is like Wikipedia.  An encyclopedia to preserve, organize, and present the results of TIGHAR's research.

On many pages, you'll find a lineup of instrument faces that act as links to TIGHAR's projects.  On many pages, left-hand menus contain the same links to help you navigate the site.

The news area has a site map that lists all of the articles in the news area.

Marty:

I suggest a button be added at the home page that will allow a jump directly into the Forum. If I understand it right, as it is currently configured, from the home page, one must go into "Latest News" and then go to the Forum from there.

Not criticizing, just saying!  :)

You seem to be right that there is no such button on the home page.

Pat is in charge of that page, so providing such a button is up to her.

Meanwhile, you may do as I have done and put a bookmark in your browser so that you can come to the Forum from anywhere without having to visit either the home page or the news section.  The URL to come straight here is: https://tighar.org/smf/index.php.

I use Firefox with Google Toolbar.  One or the other gives me a bookmarks toolbar across the top of my browser:


To create my own "button" for the forum, I just drag the URL down to the toolbar, then edit the properties under Bookmarks/Bookmarks Toolbar so that the names are short and sweet:


Hope that helps.
