I like the way we can make multiple forums and allow different lvls of access to all of them, however in implementing the Class section, in order to allow multiple class's in EQ<the original EQ, not the copies>, when I select the Forums page, it now shoots down about a mile long.
If we had a second forum page, we could put the forums on that page<the less viewed forums>, those visiting our site, with appropriate access priveledges, can more easily find what they are looking for.

They added in the collapse feature which is nice and might work for you in the meantime.

This problem is similiar to one I had with GP when I first cam here. The inforamation from the content boxes is stored in all the same place. My problem was the voting polls. When I first came here I wanted to have 2 pages one devoted to officer polling and one devoted to member polling I had set each page up to have a Voting News Content box a voting poll box and several other features that I could customize to suit the different player groups. The problem was when I went to see all the work I had done the pages looked identical because a content box pulls from a source and is not independant. For example if you wanted 2 sets of forums and you put one content box forum somewhere and another on the other page then you customized one and hit the refresh key to see how it looked you would notice that the second content box is merely a mirror of the first and that your unable to have them display seperate information. I at the time wanted several different News contents. Sandy sent me a message that said something to the extent of well we can not change the way this works but here are some suggestions... I at the time was set in my way and was kind of peeved cause I had already payed for 6 month of add free hosting... So I decided to stick around and see how it worked out. I found that I could still get a website that had been far easier to work with than my previous situations and so I stayed and I really got to like it here. I have 3 different guild branches (different games) and so I have 3 different websites through guild portal but I have twined them together so that they almost look like one. I know they have been talking about making the websites friendly to multigame guilds though and I feel this might be one of the issues that will need to be addressed in order to make the websites multi-game friendly. Though if it never happens I still like the way i have been able to twine my three seperate sites into a massive singular site. Anyway through all my rambling I may have lost the point of what I was saying... simply that I had all but fogotten about this issue and how it applies to multi game guilds and that while it is being mentioned GP may want to take a look at it and see if it can be resolved in an effort to make the websites more multi-game friendly.
