Access the User Control Panel from Homepage 

Postby Titanica » Thu Nov 01, 2018 3:15 pm

Hi, I just joined the site and I've been enjoying it a lot. One thing that really bothers me is how you can't access your User Control Panel or posts or messages from the homepage. The only thing really relating to your account is the logout button. This is a very tiny suggestion and isn't really important at all, but it would make me a bit happier.

Sorry if this is an extremely stupid suggestion or if I'm missing something. :gumshoe:

It's not stupid.

Personally, I like it as it is now. Forum specific things are kept on the forum board, and more AAO casemaker things are kept on the main page. In my opinion, adding User Control Panel buttons, PM buttons, and forum post buttons would clutter the main page. If you have an idea for what this could look like, I'd reconsider.

Here, I made a sort of pic for what it could look like.

Ah, I see.

I suspect this would be technically difficult, but I'd be open to this happening.
