    At first, I thought it might be an issue with iOS, as I normally view this site on my iPad. But even on my old-school PC at work, there are no links to Amin's other photo sites in the upper right corner of the front page. Just an FYI.

    I'm trying to make the site more lean right now for a variety of reasons, so removing the buttons was intentional. I'll see if I can come up with a replacement that doesn't involve the extra graphics and space.

    Okay, if you look under the right side of the orange bar at the top of the screen, you'll see new links for "Mu TE FX LP". Will those work? Let me know, and I'll put similar links on all the sites.

    It works although new people might not find it at first. Is there a way that if we are signed in here, you could make it so that we click on the other sites and if we are a member there, it would auto sign us in?

    Unfortunately there is no way for me to do that.

    Worth asking because I wasn't sure how you had things set up, but I get it. Thanks

    It might help them to stand out more if you could highlight them somehow. Different typeface, color, bold?

    How about now that they are spelled out?

    On my iPad, Leica Place overlaps Advanced Search.

    Spelled out isn't bad at all.

    How about now? And is "Image" instead of "Image Threads" okay?

    Spelled out is definitely an improvement. Works for me - once you know it. Hard to find though if you don't know...

    What about moving the links up, into the orange bar (next to " ... Buy&Sell - Gallery" ...)?

    Looks good on my iPad now. And why not "Images" instead of Image?

    That works for me. I'm sure others will prefer the larger icons but it works. Thanks, Amin.

    Working fine, but I was wondering too, if they could go in the upper bar... but not side by side which causes issues on small screens, but in a dropdown titled "Amin's Other Sites" or something to indicate whats there.

    The upper bar if overloaded causes bad formatting problems on certain devices, and if I put it in a dropdown menu, there will be complaints that it takes two taps/clicks whereas it used to take one.

    I don't think anyone visiting these sites will easily find (or understand) those links to the other sites. I don't know what other issues you are balancing, just saying that if you want to spread traffic to the other sites, I'm not sure noobs who stumble on one will find the other sites.
