Forums Revamp


hi there welcome to the Opera scopus or a sneak peek we are working on a new revamped version of the forums to try make them easier to use for you it’s based on the same technology and design that we are using called a new comm site so it’s a nice adaptive design to make it easy to use for those you use tablets or smartphones we’ve also are working hard to make sure that the languages are better integrated so that you can as a user who’s multilingual easily switch between the multiple languages your account settings your bookmarks will all be the same on the the new forum site so you don’t have to log out and log in you have to remember multiple bookmarks or multiple PEM subscription settings it will be in one place we also realize there is a lot of existing content on the forums that you have links to from perhaps elsewhere or cross references between different forum posts we’ve worked hard to make sure that when we import the data we keep references for that so as you can see here we’re on a existing forms page about the cloud and if we take the URL from this we can put the last part of the URL so the path is it work on to the new forum site which will eventually be a foreign stuff rescue or come but obviously to test your at the moment and we can trim that and navigate and that will redirect us from the old paths to the new parts so any references you have will be kept and we have put some more working to adding context to the posts and making the post easy to to write a big friendly new topic button at the top of the pages and we’ve got basically a subject and body the forum and language dropdowns that you see there will remove and when we go live there’ll be contextual surrey shore and a german forum post about general alfresco things it will always go into that post it’ll be in by default term in the language we have some tagging options now so you can specifically tag a question to be a power fresca version and you can take it a number of existing tags that we’ve taken from the wiki and this will be a focus on ax me so you can add new tags if you want just to make it much easier to keep track of particular questions if there’s areas you have a speciality then you can as we see later subscribe to that or you can see particular topics on the site pants you have everything that’s been tagged with saved CM is we make the post is easy to edit as you can see it’s a much cleaner design when we have already have bookmarks so you can keep track of your favorite posts and it isn’t particularly exciting it’s just a likely to go in and change things perhaps you may want to add a tag later on or not we have a salt button so which is very easy for you tomorrow topic as solved and you will be able to see that on the forum listing so you you won’t necessarily have to go in and see if something’s been solved automatically pendants solved today the subject title the reply system is pretty easy as well at the moment we had text format products there that’ll probably go and probably default to PHP BB and as you can see I’ve reply to my own poster I can also mark my own comment as useful will probably disable that because you know people giving themselves points and so you’ll only be able to get points to third parties on your post but it means that we’ve still got the point system in there and it automatically adds the total to your your point we’ve um revamped the ranking system as well and we’ve turned it in to achievements which will be extendable so at the moment we basically just copied deep achievements tougher on the existing forums so after so many posts you get a new rank not being on the forums alongside and you have a five posts especially in this this test forum and but I’ll be able to add new ranks just showed you the bookmarks they’re easy to get forward and back and this is the subscriber options I alluded to earlier as you can see it’s possibly overkill but you’ve got options to subscribe to whatever you want so you can subscribe to all new content for a particular version of alfresco for a particular tag the current plan subscribed to a particular post or a particular form these will get sent through as emails there are plenty of options to make sure you don’t get overburdened with emails as we will see in just a second so you can suspend all emails is a nice option if you go on holiday and as long as you remember to turn it on when you get back you can also automatically subscribe to your own posts for example which most people probably do here is to have a digest so perhaps every hour or every day depending on how often you check your email you’ll be able to go in there and you’ll receive an email telling you what’s changing anything you’re subscribed to but you’ll make it much easier if you to keep track of new posts and perhaps one low price to your posts we also have lauren’s for the feet for those of you don’t make email so as a feed on a per question basis showing knee replies to it and we can also show you a feed which is on a pauper floor on basis so if there’s a particular form you’re interested in you can mark us as a feed will also probably have feeds for the tags as well so you can see a feed for sea mas or whatever else or particular alfresco version that’s what you’d like okay that’s all for the moment we would really appreciate some feedback if you haven’t eat so and please let us know if there’s any new features you’re desperate to see or anything and that you really don’t like about this thank you very much
