    As it says on the page.... it's a device to reduce spambot registrations.

    Anyone interested in the forums should have no problem typing in the
    address.

    Chuck,

    Sorry for the rant - easy navigation is my pet peeve. Have you thought of
    doing Captcha?

    Carol,

    FYI: Thanks for your concern, but this isn't my first rodeo. (-;

    The phpBB board includes CAPTCHA during registration. Which is besides the
    point.

    I only want seriously interested people to visit the forums. And I don't
    think typing in the URL once and bookmarking it is really that traumatic.

    Hence the added layer of "no links that can be found by spam bots". I'm sure
    it'll get out soon enough anyway.

    Eventually, the board will be behind a membership login and the Forums
    button removed from navigation altogether.

    Not every message board I do is treated this way. In this case, it's the way
    I want it.

    Why do you have a web page directing users to another link, but instruct
    users to type the address in rather than live link it? Any why not just
    post the correct link here? Why would anyone make it harder for users to
    get to their website?

    Chuck, whilst I am certain you already know this but in the off chance this
    might be of interest to you:

    A friend of mine who is a programmer (PHP,XML,C++,,,,etc etc) has started
    using Joomla http://www.joomla.org/ I was very impressed with the ease of
    use and how easy this and the local server system was to use, he had started
    with Wiki but found it a little clunky.
