Access to Profile from Home page?
« on: August 13, 2015, 14:31:26 »
Colour me blind, but I've been a member for 9 years, and I still can't figure out if there is a way to go directly to my profile from the Home page.

From the master list of Topics/Threads, sure; that's easy. But from the home page? Does it exist?

Here?  Or is that not showing up for you?

Yes from this page (or in my case, milnet.ca, I can't stand green  ;D).

What I've always done is if you scroll down slightly, on the left hand side where it lists Online Users, just click your name in there.

Yes there are two different ways of doing it.
i. click on "## messages" next to your name which takes you to a screen where you can access your Profile; or
ii. click on any threat/topic to bring you to a screen where you can access your Profile.

All of these are two step processes. I'm just surprised that "Profile" doesn't appear in any of the drop down menus above.

Clearly, my idea of "home page" and everyone else's is different.

Show me, fine Sirs, where there is a "profile" button on THIS page (the army/milnet.ca "Home" page):

First off.....That is not the Home page.

Second.....Why have you used that page as your link to milnet.ca?

That's not the Home Page? But the url is "millet.ca"? How can you get more home page then that, homie?

Not to mention, when I go to the "Navigate" do down and select "home", that's where it takes me to!

I am NOT YOUR HOMIE.


Look at top left hand of the page. 

Can you see button that says: "Navigate"?

Place mouse button over that button and push.

Scroll down to whichever forum you want, and that will take you to the "Home Page" of that forum.

[Staple voice] That was easy.

OK.....I see what is happening.  Select your forum and not that "Home" and you should have no problems.

Once you are happy with the selection that you have, save it/bookmark it as your link to milnet.ca.

Thanks, Homes; I think we're starting to finally jive here.  ;D

I actually like the milnet.ca Home page as my link. It has the board with "recent topics" so I can quickly see who's talking about what. I can quickly get lost and uninterested in the full list of different forums.

That being said, my curiosity remains; why isn't their a link directly to your Profile from the "Home Page".
