Rearranging the Furniture - Forum Tweaks
 
In the next few days you may see a few more changes to the forum layout. Some topic areas may be moved around a little to improve site navigation and to make the forum a little more friendly for new members. Thanks in advance for your patience with this 'spring tidying' project. :flowers:

Is that the reason why "Other things Royal" are suddenly above "Reigning Houses"?

Janet H 04-18-2011 04:24 PM

Yes. We have done this in anticipation of a much higher readership than usual in the next few weeks and are making a number of these small kinds of changes to help new folks find info quickly. I must admit it's quite a change for the rest of us, akin to coming home and finding the sofa in new room. Thanks for being patient with this :)

I thought I was losing my marbles..after leaving my netbook for a virus cleanup.
ut now its ok, you just have to read..:)

Sternchen 04-19-2011 04:55 AM

I must admit, that I don't understand the reason for putting "Other things Royal" so high up, as I can imagine that a lot of newbies will search for infos on Kate and William :smile: But, oh well :smile:

Iluvbertie 04-19-2011 05:03 AM

I don't like it at all.

Other things royal should be below the reigning houses as it reduces the important discussions to below the sideshow discussions.

I thought I was going crazy. Glad to hear that at least the rearrangement is not causing that!

Maybe rename it? It does seem odd to have "Other" at the top.

Fürstin Taxis 04-20-2011 09:31 AM

I like it! :flowers:

PR :flowers:

Thanks for confusing me!:)

A question about the British board: after the wedding do you want to split the topic "William and Harry" into "William and Catherine" and just "Harry"?

Marengo 04-20-2011 04:50 PM

Yes, we intend to give the two princes seperate subforums indeed. It will take some time to seperate some threads that have both princes at topic though.

Fürstin Taxis 04-20-2011 05:29 PM

Thanks for the reply! :flowers:

I can't blame anyone for wanting to make money with this forum, but after the latest 're-arrangements', it's becoming rather blatant; I hope that this is it now, and that the site won't become overgrown any further by even more ads both out in the open and 'hidden' as in the Royal Wedding banner.

Warren 04-21-2011 03:05 PM

Oh Boris, the cynicism! The latest rearrangements have been put in place to make it easier for members to find their favourite areas. Member Introductions has been moved from the bottom of the page to near the top to give it greater prominence and to make new members feel more welcome.

The "ad" in the 'Royal Wedding' banner is for a giveaway paid for by none other than the Forums' owner, Andy R. He bought the Royal Wedding Silver Proof Coins as a promotional giveaway. Nothing more sinister than that. :smile:

The threads from the British Royal Wedding forum are not appearing on the Portal page of latest forum topics. Can that be fixed? I find the Portal page to be the most convenient place to look for all the most recent posts.

Thanks.

Thanks for pointing this out - it should be fixed now :flowers:

Royal Milestones (births, deaths, marriages etc) has been separated from Royal Genealogy and now sits at the top of Royal Highlights.

Royal Genealogy remains in the same position as before and contains the royal genealogical discussion threads.

Royal International Events
is a new subforum which contains threads relating to royal attendence at international events such as the Summer and Winter Olympics, Paralympics, World Cup etc. It is located below the Royal Genealogy subforum.

The 2012 London Olympics subforum has been moved into the Royal International Events area.
