I've been thinking ... it would be pretty convenient to have a forum login form on the main page, so you don't need to click the Forum link before being able to log in. It would save a bit of time, and a bit of bandwidth, and would be relatively simple to implement (a copy/paste would do it)

Also, the addition of recent posts on the front page is nice, but it's in an iframe. Couldn't the PHP script be put straight into the main page?

I tried implementing it without an iFrame but it complains that the headers were already sent from another file, so unfortunately it has to be an iframe or not have it at all.

I dont see why having a login on the homepage would help. Nothing else on the site requires login, just the forum, so its just as convenient to login on the forum and not on the homepage.
