Check Out the New Community Editor and Private Messages

Hi everyone! 


You might have noticed a number of positive changes in the SmartBear Community lately 

We updated the Community to make it even better! Let me highlight a couple of things that got improved. 


Private messaging was made more convenient: 


  • You can see all your private message threads on the let like in any email client.  
  • The search functionality is available for Private Messages now. 
  • The Private Messages UI in Mobile View has been improved as well. 

Check out your private messages or send one to me πŸ™‚


 The rich HTML editor for creating new posts/adding replies got enhanced greatly:  


  • Attachments can now be added with the help of the drag-and-drop feature.
  • Images and videos can be drag-and-dropped to the body of the message too!
  • More options added to the rich editor’s toolbar.
  • Inserted code gets highlighted. Extremely helpful for our tech community.
  • You can now Preview your message before posting.
  • A lot of emojis to choose from when words are not enough πŸ˜‚ 


I encourage all of you to start a topic or reply to the ones you like to test the new editor.


Take a look at the example of a topic in the Preview mode: 


Looks so neat. 

Our team hopes that you find the improvements both helpful and awesome!

    Syntax formatting is a very good idea. sometimes it was really difficult to read the code without copying it to the IDE.


    And hey! we have many more emoji icons! πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» β›² πŸ₯’


    Very cool changes

  • Hey sonya_m ,


    These are very great changes specially the code editor part. Great work team Smartbear πŸ‘.


    Also i have 1 doubt, that is there any limit on sending private message per day?

      HimanshuTayal Thank you for the kind words!

      There should be some anti-flood limits but they should not be interfering with any normal community workflow.

      Did you face an unexpected limitation with PMs? Do let me know and I will investigate further.
