Home Page Glossary Link.
« on: February 27, 2017, 12:22:15 AM »

What about having a 'Home Page Glossary Link' or moving the hidden glossary tab so it can be seen better.

Thank you for the suggestion, but at present I can't see any straightforward way to put a link on the home page. I'll have a think about ways of making the link more visible without cluttering the forum.

Not sure if you have the admin permission to make a 'Child Board : Glossary. ' under 'Site & Forum Discussion'

Sorry I didn't respond to this. The answer is Yes, I can do that. However I really don't think it justifies a separate forum subsection, so I'm looking at other ways to bring it more to the fore.

As mentioned recently here, there isnt any easy way of changing the menu tabs as they are part of the SMF Core. 

Doing so means that all future updates to that template would have to be amended manually, plus there is a high chance that it would break any major updates from that point forward until eternity.

The only way I could think is perhaps have a child board for all of the How Tos and FAQs.   The question then is, would this make it stand out any better than the pinned topics?

I've added a sticky link to the Glossary topic in the Broadband Technology board, as a small improvement in the visibility of the topic.
