@bb28747849   You said, You leave one page and likely will not be able to find it again.

 

Since I don't know what device you are using I can only speak about my Desktop and Laptop using Windows 10. There are several ways I can get back to another page, the back arrow, I can do a right click and have each new topic/discussion open in another tab or another window.  This way I can move back to the tab that has the page I want to look at or cascade the windows and go back to what I want to see and read. I can also view my history in my browser to see where I have visited.

 

You said, The message board instructions state there is a button on this page to post a new message. All I have found so far is the button to reply to your post.

 

Your right, there is not a button, you have to use Start A Topic as shown in my reply message 10, when you are looking at a topic and replying. The button is available when you are in a Community Group where it shows all topics. Example, Online Community>Home and Relationship>Introduce Yourself. Click on All Forum Topics at the top or bottom of this discussion.

 

I hope this helps.

I totally agree with all the comments on this topic regarding difficulty on searching and locating information. I just joined today and I am finding myself overwhelmed with just simply finding and locating the site on logging in. I consider myself computer savvy, since I am currently working with a Federal agency and one of my hats that I wear is managing a website for our office. I am constantly trying to keep our website computer friendly to our online visitors. This site could use someone updating and organizing for this community.

Here are a few tips to make it easier. Do you have a Favorites/Bookmarks folder/list? Mine is titled AARP, in Microsoft Edge and IE. See image below.

Have you created any Bookmarks. I have the ones I check and read the most. See image below.

To answer the question about starting a new topic. See image below. Click on Start A Topic.

Agree with your sentiments. I'm a long-time PC user having learned Windows, for my job, in the early 90's. This site is not as organized, or intuitive, as it could be. Doesn't have a robust search function either (missing from many sites, to be honest).

   Also, to be honest, website design is difficult and really takes a huge amount of input, meaning lots of research with people who will use the site, to organize a good website.

   I was a computer programmer. It's one thing to be able to code, and another to be able to design a site that is good for users. It can be done, but at a lot of time and expense.

You are absolutly correct. The webpages are crowded and confusing. You leave one page and likely will not be able to find it again. The instructions I find in the "Help" section do not match the web pages I am viewing. The message board instructions state there is a button on this page to post a new message. All I have found so far is the button to reply to your post. Some elements and pull down menues are hidden behind icons with obscure or unfathonable meanings. I spend a lot of time reading the instrunctions again and again and trying to determine what might be trying to tell me. Mostly I log off and go have fun with more active and enjoyable pleasures.
