Thanks GB I really like this page rather than going through all the forums and the portal is just a bit too short for me

Nice! Never knew about that view. Is there any other difference besides it being a longer portal? And is there any way to set up a link to it in my menubar, perhaps in place of the portal link?

I m actually not sure as it has been so long since I have used the portal page.

Nope, no way to do that. I just have the power users page link saved as my DC link in my favorites.

Between the power users interface and Firefox adblock, DC is the place to be. Yeah!

Nope, it is not published anywhere. The only reason I knew was I had it saved as a bookmark.

I think I learned about it from Alix. I've forgotten what she said and I, too, bookmarked it so I wouldn't have to remember.

I guess I'll have to use a bookmark. I usually just leave a tab open for DC at all times and use the menubar for navigating the site. Maybe I'll set up a keyboard shortcut for the bookmark, or something, either way I'm going to have to find a new way of getting around here.

Oh, are there ads here? I've been blocking web ads since the 90's. Isn't the web just so much nicer without them?

I have no way of updating the FAQ. Your best bet is to save the link and a favorite or bookmark.

Oh I see.

I am actually not going to add that because it really is not a frequently asked question. Quite the opposite actully

Just make a bookmark and you will never loose the thread again. If you ever do lose it for some reason just ask me and I will be happy to send it to you again.

All I'm looking for is an easy way to find the link that you posted on this site. Could we maybe sticky this thread?

I have the link bookmarked on my personal PC, but there are 3 other PC's that I use that I don't put bookmarks on.

The Power User feature probably isn't a FAQ because many people don't know it exists. I think that if more people knew about it, they would use it more frequently...

When the power users link first came out we did post about it and advertise it, but many people said they preferred using what they were using. There are so many diferent ways to access the site that each person can use their own.

We probably will not make this a sticky. We try to limit the stickies to only very important things. This was a request by the owner of the site. Something like this would not qualify in his eyes.

What you could do is send yourself a PM with the link and keep it in your PM folder. That way anytime you log in you always have access to the link if you need it.

I don't know how I missed it, but I had no idea there was such a thing.
