I need to make a Create New Thread process for my boards.
My users are not expert and I want to build a simple wizard for creating a new thread.

To do this, I need to build a Quick Navigation Menu page, where put the forum structure like this:

Do you want to talk about professions?
<a href="forums/first-section.1/create-thread">The First Section</a>
<a href="forums/second-section.1/create-thread">The Second Section</a>
<a href="forums/third-section.1/create-thread">The Third Section</a>
....
<a href="forums/ninth-section.1/create-thread">The Ninth Section</a>

Or do you want to talk about Work?
<a href="forums/first-section.1/create-thread">The First Section</a>
<a href="forums/second-section.1/create-thread">The Second Section</a>
<a href="forums/third-section.1/create-thread">The Third Section</a>
....
<a href="forums/ninth-section.1/create-thread">The Ninth Section</a>

Or you're looking form help section and help resources?
(some useful link).

In this way, the user click on the category of choice and go directly to create thread form.

After that, put the Create Thread Button in several pages and positions.

I like the concept of an overlay page for this purpose.
Can someone help me to realize that page?

do you need this for all forums where the user have permissions to create threads?
i'm having probably something for you, it just needs some style work (and it will also work as overlay;)

For now I've made a page with the "CreateNewThreadLinks" (will be improved later)

... and added CreateNewThreadButton in forum index and thread_view that point to page

Schermata 03-2456010 alle 14.13.02.png

Now, remain to make the CreateNewThreadWindow an pop-overlay like this window:

For the layer you can use the quick link page CSS...
For the action links, my users realle prefer the "create new thread" button aside breadcrumb :)

This is a revolutionary way to create a new thread specially for non forum expert people.
My users are really happy to find the button... never before.
