Home Page Civil Aviation Forum Button

Sat Mar 24, 2018 3:20 pm

This may have been asked a thousand times, but I'm not going to search for it, because it's irrelevant.

<rant>This is just sloppy design. You should never have a button that doesn't do exactly what it says. If the button says "Civil Aviation Forum" , It should take you directly to that forum, not the aviation forum index.</rant>
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

The button on the home page states: "CIVIL AVIATION FORUM"
As such, it should take the user to: viewforum.php?f=3
Instead, it takes the user to: https://www.airliners.net/forum/

Is that clearer?

Yes, very clear. Just check here and you're right. Just report to the dev team.

Soon it will be corrected.

It was linked correctly for the several months after the site migration, but hasn't done so after a major update around this time last year. I believe the developers are aware, but they have a lot on their plate. There's an unfortunately long list of items that require their attention. It's a lot of extra navigation for us too, particularly in the course of our moderation duties jumping from forum to forum or thread to thread, so I hear you. Being constantly redirected out to the main forum page is quite annoying.
