Maybe I am being dense, but we have an FAQ forum (consisting of threads) already. The problem with threads is the files become lost in the posts. That was the idea for a separate area JUST for files.

I think the Files section might be more appropriately named Manuals/Files

There is only so much room on the menu bar.
Not enough for something that long.

So how many characters will fit? Surely "Manuals" makes more sense than "Files". "RV Manuals" would be even better, which is still shorter than "Quick links" that is all ready on the green bar.

1) There are more than manuals there
2) This is an RV forum, so the files are RV related
3) They are all "files"

And that still doesn't help the new user of the forum because it's not descriptive enough. I even received thanks from long time users that didn't know that there was a section that contained manuals.

And make it flash red as well, but all new users would see is a flashing red "Files" sign and not realize that it contains manuals and other helpful documents.
