At the top of a thread/forum, vBulletin shows which forum or thread you are looking at. Usually, if you click the 'Daniweb IT Community' link, it takes you back to the forum index. Instead it now takes you to the daniweb homepage.
The idea of this new style is for the main site navigation to be the six main categories (the colored tabs at the top). Therefore, we're no longer separating the site out by script but instead by category of interest. Instead, the site's homepage is the root index.php page - and everything is a category of that :)
A good example of this is by clicking on the Software Development tab, you'll be encountered with Software Dev forums, Software Dev blogs, and Software Dev tutorials, all in one convenience place. :)
Can I step in line to say how great the forum looks. Especially like the simplicity, also that each forum has it's own color scheme is a really nice touch. Also it loads very quickly as well, despite having broadband, I still see the navigation as exceptionally efficient. Have only recently notcied "Similar Threads" but it's a good idea. Either you have been busy adding content, or I've been half asleep, because I keep noticing new things.
Can I ask why the sub forums were put in to the main page, and then quickly removed. Obviously "Forum Jump" does the job, so I was just wondering.
I did read a really good review about daniweb somewhere, but can't remember where, but have seen other things since, so congrats on yours and the teams success.
