May have an answer as to why more haven’t made the transition to the new discussion board. Have two family members whose computers don’t show the “hover” on the new website. i.e. When they move the cursor across the title bar, you don’t get the drop downs… one of which is the discussion board. When I cursor across the “News”, for instance, the ‘hover’ shows Local, etc. Their computers do not!!
If the hover only functions with a specific edition of Windows, etc. there could be many who pull up the main site and never even know a discussion board exists. At the least, could you put a link to the discussion board on the front page that would be seen if someone’s hover function does not work???
