Forum : No Link to Main page

Post by matm »

Hello all,

It would be nice to have a link to main page (https://linuxmint.com) from inside the forums (next to the FAQ link, maybe).
Because when I reach the forums through google, I have no way to go to the Home Page of the project apart from editing the URL...

Thanks for reading me.

Click the Mint Logo at the top, or the hamburger menu and choose Board Index. Still a home button would be good.

I wish every forum, FAQ, git-wiki ... all related sites would offer a re-direct to the main page. Few do. :(

Maybe I am clicking it wrong, but clicking the Mint Logo at the top always sends me to the LM Forums Index page.

As far as I know, that is the home page.

I think the OP wants something that points to https://www.linuxmint.com/, not https://forums.linuxmint.com.

I would not mind having a link to the Linux Mint Home page, either.
Because when I reach the forums through google, I have no way to go to the Home Page of the project apart from editing the URL...
Well, irrespective of the ways which you took in order to arrive on https://forums.linuxmint.com, switching to https://www.linuxmint.com is extremely simple and convenient, if you create a bookmark for it. Even more convenient if you put the bookmark in the Firefox bookmark toolbar.
Just an idea. :wink:
