MSDN and Silverlight forums not working? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've contacted a few friends to comfirm, all have the same problem:

    1.  No "New Thread" button (no way to start a new thread)

    2.  Reply to existing thread dumps one to either the home page or generates IIS error "Server Error in '/' Application" ... etc. etc.

    Anyone else having a problem?

  • Which forum exactly do you mean? I searched by 'Silver' and found only one active forum http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/bingmapssilverlightwpfcontrols/threads

    The rest of the forums were archived which means you can not post there.

  • Likely this forum: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/silverlightgeneral/threads

    Read the top post, about the coming lockdown. The forum is now in the Archived forums section.

    Silverlight forums are here:

    http://forums.silverlight.net/

    Looks like they migrated the Silverlight forums back over to MSDN...

  • Ed,

    The new MSDN Silverlight forum is not working.  When I click on a google search link it takes me only to the Silverlight forum home page and not directly to the post.

    Even if I search from the forum home page with the same search criteria, the forum returns no hits.  This needs to be fixed ASAP, as we are actively working on a big Silverlight project and the forum search is our lifeline.

    Thanks in advance,

    Go ahead and start a new post here. This is a separate issue (about Search). We have different contacts and teams for this.

    Thanks!
