@Coastie, it now shows Forum Home, and if you mouse over the logo, it shows you where it goes to.

I suggest Home under the logo; and Forum Home and adding Forum Help link on the line of text.

I wish more forum users would express their opinion on this so that Jerry can get an idea of what they need versus just the opinion of just a few who took the time to speak up.

Maybe A survey ? I found this tread just looking around. A hard/perm link to "forum suggestions" could be helpful.
Myself, and I imagine others really appreciate the response and positive way you and Jerry have responded. GREAT COMMUNITY HERE !

Either way is fine to me, but the logo taking you to the main website does seem slightly more intuitive in my opinion.  :)
For me the prominent "Feather Logo/Graphic" to LL Main Home page, and the "Home" black text to Forum home.
I think maybe it's the placement, and/or lack of text that may confuse.??

"Linux Lite Home" vs "Linux Lite Forum Home"


I would agree... feather logo to Linux Lite Home... Home "tab" to forum home ... my .02 cents  ;D

Seems it should be reversed, "home" for forum home, and linuxlite with logo in upper left for the actual homepage for the OS. At least to me that would make more sense.


Who else thinks this? I need to have an understanding of how most people treat the current links for Home and the logo intuitively. Thank you.

That is covered in the first reply, it is the "Home" button.

-Ah thank you for clarifying. I kept using the LinuxLite logo in the upper left.
