Popular link to Forum

I have recently lost the forum from the popular links on the home page. Is this just me? If so can is there some way I can get it back? If it is everyone - can we have it back please?

I may be a bit thick but it took me a while to find it right at the bottom of the screen - would newbies even be aware that there is such a thing as it is so well hidden?

  • Well it's now situated discreetly at the bottom left hand corner of the home page on my screen - next to the orange RSS button (also see below at the bottom of this page). However it looks like there's a new link to Asthma UK on Facebook in its place.

    But perhaps installing the new ""Asthma Widget"" would solve this, although there is room to put it back under Popular Links?

  • It has just taken me a whole hour to find the forum link! i thought it had been closed down and way wondering why, i looked all through the site a to z without finding it and i even looked on the search part, it was only that i looked for something else that i actually found it!

  • I don't have a problem with there being a face book link but I dont find that that is as good as this forum as a discussion board. I gained a great deal from this forum particularly when I first joined following my first major attack and I think it would be such a pity if others cannot get the same benefit.

  • Have just installed the widget. I think if I was new and saw only 4 topics listed it may put me off going any further. Perhaps this could be modified to show discussion forum as a general option rather than expecting a user to select a topic that they may not have a clue about in the hope that it takes them somewhere else.

  • Hi everyone,

    I noticed that too. I will ask the web team to look into it and report back. Meanwhile, hope you are joining our campaign for asthma standards. I reckon we have a 30 per cent chance of success and the more people who join in, the better our chances will be.


  • The simplest way to get straight to the forum pages is once you are there, on the main page, is to click Add to favourites and add it to your list. You then go straight to the forums without navigating from AUK home page.


  • Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your posts about the missing forum link - this has now been restored to its original place and will stay there from now on.

    We regularly rotate the links in this section to try and showcase the wide variety of content we have, and as the forums have a link at the bottom of every page on the site and most news stories, we thought we could put something else in its place for a couple of days.

    We really appreciate your feedback on things like this, so thanks for starting the thread! Also, you can always drop us a line at webeditor@asthma.org.uk.
