I often click on my profile icon to see flagged conversations from there. With my attention on the upper right corner of the screen, I then click on the house icon, thinking it will take me to the forum home page. It doesn’t. It opens Ansible Community | Ansible.com in a new tab.
I find this behavior surprising every time it happens. Has anyone else noticed this? Are there folks who expected the behavior they got when clicking on that icon? Do we know how many folks use that link and then go on to view other content on ansible.com?
I don’t entirely know if this is a problem, and I don’t have a solution in mind, though perhaps using a different icon would make the behavior less surprising.
Thanks for this. So I do also find it odd that the Home icon goes to a different website. I poked arond on a few other discourse forums and don’t see the home icon at all. Given that clicking the Ansible Community on the upper left returns to the home view, maybe we can remove the Home icon entirely?
So yes, I added that icon. I thought it was important that we could easily get to the root domain, especially given the future plans there. However in hindsight perhaps the “home” icon was a bit misleading…
Would you suggest a different icon, or just removing it entirely?
Right now we have the Ansible icon on the left and the home icon on the right. What if we just switched the icons? So home would do what home usually does, gets back to the top of the forum so to speak. And the Ansible icon would go to the Ansible website.
