Finding the Trading Post

Did I miss an announcement about it being temporarily shut down? How do I find it now that the normal link on the forum page is gone?

Look up. The "Classifieds" tab at the top of the page takes you there--as it always has. At least since January 2005.

I was thinking the same thing.

I've never noticed those tabs before!

Good to know that as well. I didn't think anyone used those links.

On Monday, design elements of ehMac should change, and it hopefully there will be a clearer, more apparent navigation system at the top of the page.

FWIW, I use the tabs all the time. Hope they don't completely disappear!

It's likely too late to make this suggestion, but HowardForums uses vBulletin software also, and incorporates a "Marketplace" link right into the userbar as follows:

Got me! I was just looking for the Trading Post as well...then found this thread then went looking again for the upper tabs that were mentioned....still couldn't find them. But I now just spotted them. In fact I logged in because maybe there were tabs in the bright red bars that didn't show if I wasn't logged in. There were....but alas! still no classifieds.

Anyway, as I mentioned I just a moment ago found the top tabs.

I think those three tabs are not maybe the most effective (for me at least) because of a few reasons. I've seen them before but they don't stand out, sorry to say, as important to me because everything is or was down further the page and in particular, below the name of the page. Also, they're almost ghosted on my screen so they don't show up really well (again ghosted is traditionally not usable either, as far as I've noticed in programs I use). They disappear with the slightest scrolling down of the page, and the red bars below that also have important links and are much more noticeable because of their colour and also their location below the Ehmac name. They almost create a box almost around what I take for the official body of the site page.

I'm not sure if the removal of the Trading Post link from the other links it was with is permanent but I think a few folks will need direction back up to the top of their page (above your name) to find it.

Good luck with the changes and upgrades. Designing/creating is often so much more challenging than critiquing ....my observations are meant with the best of intentions.

Thanks for the feedback. We're working on the Navigation system right now.
One of the reasons for design change, was not just to make site look purty, but to improve the ease of use of the site. Hopefully things will be even more clean, and clear despite the many new features that will be added.

Your feedback after the changes will be appreciated.

It's Thursday now and I can't find anything "clear" about getting to the forums.

Sorry gwillikers just told me. One click on the little ehMac guy in the left corner to get there. Strange but true.
