new "menu" area on the site

I am looking for members to help with the new menu page

it comprises (or will do) 4 distinct areas

Area 1, immediate 2 line main menu

Area 2, announcement area (currently promoting our 2012 calendar)

Area 3, Forum Tips

Area 4, Detailed Menu

======================can you help? =========================
The forum Tips Area should cover stuff like Bookmarking, Subscribing to Topics

Official advice
Bookmarking in phpBB3 is much like bookmarking in your web browser. You aren’t alerted when there’s an update, but you can come back to the topic later. Subscribing, however, will notify you when there is an update to the topic or forum on the board via your preferred method or methods.
Unofficial Advice
Bookmarking a topic, subscribing to a topic

If you particularly value a topic, if it's one of your favourites, then you can bookmark it or subscribe to it

If you bookmark it, that topic will be added to your bookmarks in your UCP so you can easily go back to it anytime

If you subscribe to it, then you will be emailed each time another member replies to that topic.
there's an example of where the FAQ contains Forums Tips that YOUR COMMENTS could well be a help - even though official advice is already there

I would particularly welcome your tips on the following forums matters

A. Viewing the forums on a mobile phone

B. Logging in, I forgot my password, what problems did you experience?

C. Attachments, what do you attach? problems?

D. Friends and Foes, any advice? tips?

E. What is the “Save” button for in topic posting? Have you used it?

F. How do I bump my topic? Have you ever bumped?

Plus any other forums matters where you found you couldn't understand what to do next, maybe a tip from you would help other members

If you have a forums tip, look in the FAQ to see whether it is also covered there, it may be covered in FAQ but you could be able to explain it in a much more helpful way e.g. the Bookmarks Tips above

What I miss is the the bar that was at the top of the page that was in subMerged. It was very useful for getting around the site quickly, as it was always there. I have to say I find these "silver" styles harsh on the eyes, and quite clinical, but then I'm an old git and set in my ways
