No, unfortunately those new "addresses" do not lead to the list of postings, but to some complicated pages of something else.
Actually I'm afraid this Forum is so darned obscure and difficult to use I doubt I'll be trying very much now. The major difficulty being the division of everything up under categories.
I didn't quite understand when you said that this is as easy as you can make it - Do you mean it is actually electronically impossible to remove the categories, or do you mean that you yourself do not like to remove the categories? If it is the latter, seeing as it is the BPS website, I'd really like to put it to the vote at the next AGM I'm there for, as I am convinced it makes the thing so complicated to have to search in many different places - and I think others may have found it so, too. It is nothing like as easy and clear as the other Forum, for example.
I cannot understand why anyone would want to split our subject up into various different, often rather contrived categories - pteridologists really should aim to be less compartmentalised, rather than more, don't you think? Of course some people love manipulating IT thingies - but for me I'm more interested in the subject itself and would like to have to do as little page-searching and fiddling as possible. You hardly have millions of posts which might therefore require division into categories!
How about considering it, Anthony? Unless, of course, the site cannot physically be designed in any other way - but I can only doubt that very much. I just want us to end up with the easiest, simplest and clearest website - but obviously categories within the subject can only obstruct that aim!
