    I am not placing this in the Tech forum because that forum gets no traffic. Most recent post in there was a month ago. Native, please do not move this thread. I know others are having the same issue and this will give them an opportunity to speak on it.

    @admin1 , I'm sure that you and others are aware of the issue, but can you please make it so the "home" tab redirects to the forum list (like it used to), instead of sponsor advertising and new member intros? This is apparently something that was changed during an "update" about 6 weeks ago, and it is very aggravating.

    I have tried the little tricks that were suggested, like creating a favorites link for the forum list and changing my home page address, but I still find myself clicking the home tab when navigating the site. This is probably due to force of habit, as this is how I have navigated the site for ~15 years. I've given it weeks of time, but I am still having difficulty adjusting. It is quite annoying to be redirected to that "portal" page when I am expecting the forum list to load.

    If you can resolve this issue then I and and many other Fuge members would be very appreciative.

    Simple:

    Go to whatever place designates what your home tab should be. Insert this to replace what is there....

    http://www.refugeforums.com/forums/

    See, whatever happened (and they aren't sure what it is) changed your home page address to refugeforums.com/portal. That is a legitimate page. YOU have to change your homepage address to the one I listed above.

    He's talking about the "home" tab on the forum, not his computer. It used to take you to the main forum page.

    Well, the tab right next to it says 'forums'. The forums are NOT the homepage of the website.

    Sorta like going to http://www.shotgunworld.com/
    If you want to end up on the forums, it takes another click.

    I never said they were. But up until recently, if you clicked the "home" tab, you'd go to the forums page.
