I am a little slow, but I finally played around with this and created my personal menu block located right above the Whos Online block, using html formatting. I don't know how many people are utilizing this, but it is a nice feature. For now, I put links to the top 5 forums that I visit, but you could personalize it however you want. A screen print is below.

You can modify it to your needs by changing the website address as well as the label that will show up. I am posting my html text for anyone who wants to use it for a baseline, reference, to change it for your needs.

To use this feature, go into My Account, then click on the Edit Your Home Page icon. Check the box to Enable Your Personal Menu Block, then type in the html code in the text box.

Here is my html code, which gives me the links shown in the screen print below for 5 Ton, Deuce Modding, Deuce, Trailers, and For Sale.

">5 Ton</a><br>
<a href="http://steelsoldiers.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewforum&f=74">Deuce Modding</a><br>
<a href="http://steelsoldiers.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewforum&f=43">Deuce</a><br>
<a href="http://steelsoldiers.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewforum&f=81">Trailers</a><br>
<a href="http://steelsoldiers.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=PN_zClassifieds&file=index&cat=1">For Sale</a>

You can easily figure out how to modify this for your needs. The website address you want goes in between the quotes, and the label that shows up in your menu block is the text in between the > and the </a>. The <br> tells it to put the next label on another line.

I've been using it for a while now. It's nice to list certain threads that I go back to frequently such as the brake bleeder thread. I also link it to my email page so I can get right in. Nice feature
