It's not there.

Hi Ayesha

There's no link in the footer to groups. Has the link been removed? Is it contextual? I mean, is it only accessible when we are in a particular section of our profile or something? I can't find it.

It's right at the bottom

even RIGHT below the posts here, in the footer! If you scroll down as far as you can it's in the footer !!

Failing that use this: https://www.odesk.com/groups

Look Down

Scroll to the bottom of this page. Do you see 'Community FOrum'? Yes? Look at the line below that. Do you see Groups? In between Solutions and Tests? Yes? Click that.

Is It Just Me?

The new site shows these links only:
About Us / Blog / Feedback / Community / Trust & Safety / Help & Support
Advisory Services / Legal / Resources

The old site shows these:
About Us | Blog | Community Forums | oConomy | API Center | Feedback | Trust & Safety
Press | Enterprise Solutions | Groups | Tests | Downloads | Help | What's New
Site Map | Affiliate Program | Health Benefits | oDesk Payroll | Legal | Store

You must be using the "New look", I just checked.

In the new interface, Groups

In the new interface, Groups are in the Resources section. In the footer, go to Resources. That's where you'll find Groups.

Junelle, don't you get the black strip on the top blue header that says "Welcome to the new oDesk! Let us know what you think, Leave Feedback. Return to old site"

If you had crossed it earlier, then try clearing your cache and then refresh the page, it might start showing up again.

You're welcome Once you

You're welcome Smile Once you clear the cache, the site preferences get cleared and you see the default version, and the black strip should come back for you...

That's odd! How about trying

That's odd! How about trying a different browser? What are you using now? Try Firefox or Chrome, basically something other than what you have now. See if it shows up then.

Junelle, what I meant was,

Junelle, what I meant was, open it in Chrome and see if the strip appears on top, if it does, revert back to the old site, then come back to firefox to see if you get the new version or the old one. Long shot, but just might work!

ETA: I just tried this, I was on the new site in FF, then I went to Chrome, logged in and clicked Return to Old site from the top. Then I came back to FF, refreshed, and got the old site! So do try opening it in Chrome, if you get the black strip there, you will be able to revert back Smile
