I've implemented a new portal homepage, quite similar to the homepage 8+ years ago.
https://www.speedsolving.com/

Currently it shows 2 featured videos, along with the latest posts on the forum. The idea is to introduce new people to the community, but also provide a useful homepage for all members. If you have any feedback what you think should be shown on the homepage, please let me know.

The forum used to be at /forum, but now the forum sits in the root. The forum homepage is at:
https://www.speedsolving.com/forums/

Threads URLs have changed slight to:
https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/new-speedsolving-chat-discord-free-puzzles.73557/

All old URLs should redirect and work fine, but please report if you notice any broken links or issues. Thanks.

I think he means the www.speedsolving.com/competitions; with the previous homepage you had a huge easy button to get there. Is there one on the new homepage?
Sorry I was unclear. Yeah, I meant speedsolving.com/competitions. I bookmarked it but it’d be nice to have another button for that. Maybe in the menu?

On the home page of the forum, it's auto-playing whatever video is there. Is there a way to not have it autoplay? Or, at the very least, respect the pause button to the side of the video (currently that does nothing)?
From experimenting with the pause/play button, it seems not to be for the video but rather for the autoplay. After like 15 seconds the video automatically switches from the Stanley video to the Feliks video, but if you pause it, then it won't automatically switch.

Also, this belongs in pjk's "new forum home page and links" thread. reported
