re "Front Page". I NEVER see the FrontPage. MY LINK takes me directly to the message board, and I am all signed in when I get there. Saves time and it is what I want to see anyhow.
I suggest you first go to the message board, sign yourself in, and THEN build your LINK (however your system does it). Beats going through 2 or 3 pages every time that you do check-in. Don't forget to then cancel your original LINK.
