It would be nice to better access to the main site links like the blog and manuals directly from the discussions site. I've attached some prototypes of what I'm talking about.
Thank you for letting us know you are interested in this, @RichardPayne! I'll mention it to the team here.
I agree. Is there a link at agilebits.com at all.
Not presently. It is quite prominent on the "Contact Us" page on our support site, though.
