LOOK & NOTE… Now please, consolidate :wink:

& No, this is not an IQ test “what does not belong”, but a simple suggestion.

Describing the problem
Many web sites & pages have search forms in the same area. The only text present is usuallly simple “Search” in a frame or without. Since i had adapted to this common behavior, i don’t take care anymore to register what it’s really written, thus the problem occurs which disturbs my ethereal flow. BANG!!! The pumping Grid Gallery opens!!!

Proposal

  • move ‘Forum Gallery’ elsewhere
  • use an icon

Thank you

Out of curiosity, what would you expect a forum gallery icon to look like (matching the current aesthetic)?

I don’t understand what the problem is; there’s a clear ‘search’ icon, and the ‘Forum Gallery’ link is clear. The other available location in the top header for the gallery menu would be to the right of the logo, but I don’t think that’s a good location visually.

something alike standard gallery icon/symbol

@bartv
of course it’s obviously clear to those who are at home here…
