Improve navigation on forum website

I am new to all forums (and their software).
I find navigation in this part (and to some degree all sub pages on the site).

First, all pages seem too much the same. The top banner dominates each page. It is not clear
unless you learn to read the navigation menu just below the top banner, just where you are.

It would be a nice improvement if there was an additional word in the top banner (in large letters)
that indicates where you are.

Second: The navigation menu (under the top banner) does not stand out I have used the forum
for a few weeks and did not realize it was there. I would ask that you make it more visible.

Just a few thoughts.

Would it be too ironic to ask for this to be moved to "website and forum" ?
