Forum Navigation

Post by Papalovesyou » Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:16 am

In order to help members new to the forum, we have created a brief explanation of forum navigation.


The quickest way to navigate is broken into two parts, Quick Links and the Jump to drop down. Quicklinks are found on the left part of the Navbar. The navbar presents a quick link to phpBB FAQ, the Forum rules, and the Chat Center.

The left navbar:

You will notice on the left side of the navbar is the Quicklinks dropdown menu, which provides
a fast way to get to certain forum features, including one page not seen in the Navbar, the News & Events page.

The Quicklinks Menu

A quick way to navigate to a specific forum is to use the Jumpto dropdown. Simply go to the bottom right portion of the page and find the Jumpto dropdown and select the forum you wish to navigate to.

The Jump to dropdown:

Finally, another important member feature is the UCP (User Control Panel). This is accessed via the right side drop down, then selecting the UCP.

The right side drop down.

The UCP controls many user choices, like subscriptions, whether other users can send PM (Private Messages) to you, your avatar (picture that posts with each post), friends and foes, and Chat settings.

An "Easter Egg" of sorts in hidden in the header image (where the ladybug is). It will take you to the Home page, where you see all the forums! Try it if you get lost :shock:
May we all come to know Papa as we are known... and see ourselves as He sees us!

Another navigation aid has been added. Simply hover your mouse over the Board index and you will see a dropdown menu appear, that allows you to navigate to a given forum, much like the Jump to dropdown.

The dropdown in short form:

phpBB does not natively come with Forum statistics. In order to provide statistics a forum extension has been added called Basic Statistics, which offers daily, monthly and years statistics. It is accessed via the right hand side of the footer as below:
