Upgrades page is empty

This one:

http://www.shapeoko.com/upgrades

Shouldn't it at least have a link to the Inventables drive upgrade kit?

https://www.inventables.com/projects/sh ... -drive-kit

and while it's not ready for that yet, eventually, it'd be nice to have a link from the first page to the Upgrades Overview page:

Okay, but...

- arriving at http://www.shapeoko.com/
- clicking on ``Purchase'' (since there is no longer an ``Upgrades'' link to go to http://www.shapeoko.com/upgrades) one (eventually) gets to https://www.inventables.com/technologie ... s-shapeoko --- but the dual drive kit isn't listed there, would it not be appropriate to add it?

So I don't see a click path from the home page to either

- http://www.shapeoko.com/acme_upgrade
or
- https://www.inventables.com/projects/sh ... -drive-kit

Rather than removing the link ``Upgrades'' from the nav bar, wouldn't it've made more sense to rename the acme_upgrade page (w/ a redirect from its original page) and added the latter link to it? Or am I missing something?

done and done.

Now i'll just need to add the link to the dual drive kit, and the other upgrades I have in the queue :-)

While I see an ``Upgrades'' link when I go to the upgrades page, somehow on the home page, all I get is:

Home Blog Purchase Downloads Wiki Forum About

Not sure what's up w/ that.

Anyway, while you're fiddling w/ menu links:

- it'd be nice to have links back to the home page in the Forums (currently clicking on the ``shapeoko'' graphic takes one back to the board index which is redundant since there's a link to ``Board Index'' directly under it)
- it'd be nice if there was a link to the wiki in the forum interface (my suggestion would be to make it as the link from ``The ShapeOko CNC Group'' text

and of course, it'd be nice to work out the converse on the wiki pages at some suitable place(s).
