Suggestions about UI issues

I’ve just started using Codeacademy recently but I’ve noticed a few annoyances in the UI I’d like to bring into light a bit to try to the mods and make this site better for the community.

On the [home page]]( there is no way to access Codeacademy Discuss without having to go to google or enter the url manually. Fixing this would make it easier to go to the forums after finishing lessons and help new users start using Discuss.

Secondly, when I first went to Discuss I had to log in again instead of having my account logged into being carried over from the home page. It was a minor annoyance but it’s nice to bring it into light.

Thank you for reading it, and for any mods reading it please take these suggestions into consideration to improve Codeacademy.
