Welcome the New Community Design

Hello Community!

 

I'm so excited to introduce a new community design of our community site!

We worked hard on simplifiying the main pages so that you could easily find the needed information in the community and chat with other community members. On more improvements is that now the community site should look much better on mobile devices - we have implemented the special support. So, feel free to creat posts from your phones or tablets.

Hurray! πŸ™‚

 

Any comments/feedback/suggestions? Feel free to post it here or contact me by sending a private message.

Hi @TanyaYatskovska

I think there should only be one post per topic in this list.  In the below example, the ones marked red should have dropped off when the newer posts showed up.

@TanyaYatskovska   Here, the worst case has already happened.  All of these are from the same topic.  Not helpful at all.

Hi,

 

Today, we've updated the community site with some improvements. @Marsha_R, we've added the possiblity to see the latest topics, latest posts and unanswered topics to the Community Home page and to each product community page. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks for the update.

 

After using the new comunity site for a while now, I find I am getting used to the subtle differences, even getting used to the larger more spaced out design Smiley Happy . The only thing that I really now miss from the old site was the ease at switching between forums. Take for example that I've finished posting here and now want to go back to the SoapUI Pro forum. I have to

 

  • Click the SmartBear Community link near the top, wait for the page to load.
  • Scroll down, click the "ReadyAPI Platform and Tools" link, wait for the page to load.
  • Scroll down, click the SoapUI Pro link, wait for the page to load.

Whereas on the old site there was, near the top of the page a dropdown menu that listed all of the forums under their respective headings, thus with one click and one page load I was where I wanted to be.

 

Please do point out if I've missed some navigation functionality. 

Hi @TanyaYatskovska - 

 

The Unanswered Topics is really helpful, thanks for that!   I'd still like to shrink things down a bit on the pages though.  πŸ™‚

 

Did I see on a old post that unanswered ones are getting emailed to Support automatically after some length of time?

@Marsha_R, it inludes all unanswered topics. The support team (if needed) reviews the same page at the moment.

Thanks for the pointer @TanyaYatskovska, I genuinely missed the fact that icon was a menu! That will make navigating a lot easier and quicker.

Smiley Happy
