    That's a good idea. I'll look into it.

    "Old WordPress articles" is now on the Quick Links menu, and I've sqeezed "Today's Posts" onto the navbar.

    I was expecting a link in the forum header area, as there was before. Why has it disappeared?

    On Michael's suggestion, I put the link in the Quick Links dropdown. It wasn't in the header area before -- it was just a sticky thread.

    It was in the header before the "40s nostalgia" look.

    I disagree.

    There is a lot of obsolete content in the WordPress discussions. Perhaps if updated articles (minus the discussion) were made available as links under the "About BC3" page, that would be useful to give new users a more rounded feel of how BC3 is different from BC2. But I don't think we would want to intentionally send new users to the WordPress discussions to dig through and rehash functionality that has already been decided upon.

    If forum members had discussions in WordPress that have not been appropriately addressed, then they can be referenced and re-addressed in vbulletin. We just need an easy way to get there to find our old posts...and a Quick Link provides that. Advertising the old discussions in the header distracts the beta community by urging them to focus on obsolete content rather than focussing on the current functionality of the product and carrying it forward.

    But the discussions would give new users an idea of how and why such decisions were reached - I'd rather think that would avoid them rehashing discussions they otherwise can't see have taken place.

    I think it's always useful to record (and preserve) why decisions have been taken, not just that they have been taken.

    It is preserved. Just not blatantly advertised.
