#3595 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add link to "Create topic" above topic list in support forums

Reported by: tobifjellner Owned by: obenland
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


For new users (and not only) it's not always obvious that the form to submit a new topic is located much further down on the page. On a relatively wide screen, there's a sidebar link ready + Create Topic, but on a narrow screen (like mobile) the sidebar is also located much further down the page (when you'd actually need it the most...)

Add the same link + Create Topic just above the topic list.
And perhaps also on top of every single topic view.

This small change should give us quite a few less "hi-jacked" threads in the forums.

I'll add a home-cooked mockup.

An example what it might be like if we add the link "+ Create Topic" just before the topic list.
