Forum Improvements

Recommended Posts

1. Make BIGGER or bolder the orange button text. (white on orange is hard to see especially using Chrome.

2. Make bigger and/or darker the gray and orange text.

3. Add a floating arrow button to expedite returning to the top of the page.

4. Add "Contributed to" to the SORT BY list so threads I contributed to move to the top of the list.

(this can already be done using one's account Profile link at the top right)

5. Make a forum access link from our BL account login page so the (broken for IE) login can be avoided.

 I know I am old and stupid, but it seems unnecessarily difficult to find cakewalk and especially the forums on bandlab. If you type bandlab.com in your browser address bar you get to a page https://www.bandlab.com/feed where you can log on to your bandlab account, but I do not see any link from that page to anything having to do with cakewalk. If it is there, it is remarkably easy to miss. If you use the search box on that page you do not get anything that will link you to cakewalk as a product, much less the forum. If you click the Explore Bandlab button you get a page https://www.bandlab.com/explore/home that has a tiny list at the bottom which includes a download apps hyperlink, but the list of apps does not include cakewalk.
 
If you type cakewalk.com you get a page with two learn more buttons both of which take you to a page https://www.bandlab.com/products/cakewalk that provides a description of cakewalk and a download link. It also includes a list of hyperlinks at the very bottom under the heading community, but there is no link to the forums there or anywhere else that I can find on that page. While anyone who has been regularly following these forums will no doubt have learned how to get to the new forum, it does not seem that it will be obvious to any new user.  It is certainly not obvious except to the cognoscenti that you should be looking for a cakewalk forum under "discuss."

It would seem to be a no-brainer to put PROMINENT links between cakewalk and bandlab web pages so that people who get to the one can easily find the other.

A link to the forum from our BL user account login makes the most sense, like it was with Sonar. I have no problem logging into BL with IE. But IE will NOT let me log in to the forum.

Agreed about it being hard to find. I did the same thing. Went to my Bandlab feed and tried to find a link to d/l CbB and couldn't find it. I guess they have a reason for that. I just don't see iot. Maybe we all are the beta testers of the new forum before they turn it loose to the GP.
