    Ron, thanks. That’s useful feedback.

    For me personally the comparison with other sites comes down to considering the purpose of a web site. But that can vary enormously.

    For me, getting people to contact me about the data I have in my tree is a, if not the, major function of my site. It is how my user base and hence the tree itself has grown. Hence my interest in elevating it to the main menu.
