New Forums Layout

    General discussion

  • I just would like to say how incredibly unimpressed I am with the new forums set up...seriously.

    I can never find the group I'm looking for, Search is abyssmal, and my earlier posts are STILL missing in My Threads.

    In addition, the good old fashioned way of pasting "code" into a post was just fine!!!

    You guys have taken something that used to be just great and turned it into the biggest kludge I have seen...

  • There should be hierarchical selection of categories. For example on the first page there should be only a simple list of categories like below. They can be in many columns too, but keep it simple:

    Forum manual

    Languages
    Platforms
    Methodologies


    Then if I select for example languages, then under that should be all the languages, nothing more, like:

    C#
    VB.NET
    VB6
    JavaScript

    Then if I select one language, then under that should be the threads.

  • ...and in addition - completely aside from the layout, the performance SUCKS!!!! Half the time when I submit a post, it never posts successfully, they never show up in My Threads, if you create a code box in a post and later want to edit it or remove it, you can't...

    I mean the new Forums just really kinda bite...bring back the old version, please!!

    For example, I have tried to post THREE times today and guess what...nothing...
