    The link Tom Wilcox lists in his weekly email is this.

    For past Sunday emails with images on the NAWCC.org Message Board.
    go to:
    Executive Director's Weekly Newsletter

    Using the 2nd link the trail at the top is

    Home>
    Encyclopedia>Official NAWCC News

    When looking at the MB I can't find this trail to the Email, I can see the Encyclopedia Fourm but not the WIKI Newletter?
    Something must be wrong with the Link or my browser?

    It should be listed at the Top of the MB under NAWCC Business

    Jim,

    If you go to the "Main Page" of the message board and scroll all the way to the bottom, on the left side is the link to ED's weekly newsletters.

    BTW, when I click on the link in Tom's newsletter (as you posted above) it takes me to the newsletters. This week's newsletter, however, has not been posted as I type this.

    Regards.

    I don't see anything at the bottom left? I see the pic's then Forum Stat's, that's all. I did click on the small arrow (Toggle Sidebar) and it shrunk the MB to allow for a column on the right which shows his weekly Emails, however you have to work at that to see it, my suggestion is to make it easily available at the top of the Main page under NAWCC News.

    Dave,
    Yes, that is what I just explained if you click on the arrow (Toggle Sidebar) it does fill up the right side with this info.
    I never use this because it shrinks the MB down to fit that stuff in, and was just suggestion putting it in to top where it could be easily read under NAWCC News.

    The breadcrumbs that show up when you click on the link as discussed above is Home > Encyclopedia > Official NAWCC News. If you just manually navigate to Encyclopedia in the bar at the top of the page, there is no such link below that for Official News. And why park it under Encyclopedia??

    The newsletter is not just copied and pasted. Many of the images are "somewhere else." Sometimes it needs reformatting also.

    I recreate it each weekend from Tom's Gift Legacy Newsletter. There is probably a better way to do it.

    I am in Texas at a family reunion this weekend and have not had time to transfer it.

    If you have the side column visible on the home page, it does not display when you open a forum or a thread. It only occupies space when there is a general catalog of some sort displayed. I find it very useful.
