Someone has to ask....


Many of us has found it helpful to have the forums and the Q&A boards on the same page.

Any chance of doing that?

Kathryn, you beat me to it.

Another reason to merge them is so that the Q/A board does not get forgotten since most of us only look at the message boards.

Thanks! One last small nit..

There is no way to navigate back to the top, to page showing all the the newly combined boards, when you are in one of the threads that used to be part of Q&A. This has been a common problem when other admins have combined them too. Not sure how they solved it, but they all did somehow.

I fixed it so that it goes back to the Message boards.
Unfortunately the way I did it will be over written when I upgrade the project.
I will have to look for another way or else make the change multiple times.

Thanks again! Perhaps the admins at one of the other projects has a solution you can use? Why reinvent the wheel?
