At the top of the forum index is a link entitled Introduction/Read this first.
Saddened by the who-haa with Truella I clicked on it out of interest coz I couldn't remember what it said. Mine doesn't work, is it my computer? (Usually is )

That's a link to the section of the forum that contains announcements, welcomes and author's corner.

Not true (for me anyway). It shows that forum section (and all that it contains). The other forum sections (Projects etc) are merely listed in summary.

Checked again. It sort of works but not in any meaningful way.

It does what he says it does. But I agree, it's not dreadfully meaningful. There IS a FAQ, isn't there? Somewhere? Could it link to that?

It produces this, which is what it's supposed to do:-



If the section heading isn't meaningful or helpful, we can easily change it.

Possibly the title of 'Site Announcements...' needs attention.

Ah, I see. It's a title. Not a suggestion?

It is, although it doesn't really suggest that the threads (as per your links) are worthy of attention before owt else.

Suggestions for rewording anyone?

Could you just make it 'introduction'? And then have 'read this first' going to a Bagpuss' post or something similar that is actually informative?
