New topic format is worse than before!

Jump to solution

I notice all sorts of useless info cluttering up the right side of each topic.

This is ONLY appropriate for boards and categories and not topics where I want to see the questions and answers and nothing else on the right.

Also, on some boards, I can't see the Board options above the Key Links block.

I can see it here:

https://community.saas.hpe.com/t5/Service-Manager-Service-Center/bd-p/itrc-695

But not here:

https://community.saas.hpe.com/t5/Data-Security-Discussions/bd-p/data-security-discussions

I swear there was there two weeks ago.

 

Also, I menioned this long ago on the previous forum about the section "Top Contributors Last 30 Days".

This is NOT correct.  It is whatever I've set in my settings for kudos > Top Kudoed Posts component.

So if you can't get the contents right, fix the title to match or use generic wording.

 

For some boards, I no longer see the count of New posts in a topic:

https://community.saas.hpe.com/t5/Mobile-Center-Practitioners/bd-p/MobileCenterSupportandNews

This makes it useless if I'm polling for new posts.

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the feedback.    

First - the options menu should be back.   It wasn't supposed to disappear.  Thanks for pointing this out... it shoudl be corrected everywhere.  

Second - the reason that we've added more community related content to the right rail is because many people find posts from  google search, therefore, some content about the relevant community is important, so they can find other related content.   We'll continue to work on refining the right mix of content in the right rail, 

I need to look into the Top Contributors issue and the issue about the post listing..

In this post under firefox, I can't see the tags and other buttons because the right rail is too wide:  Even if I expand to max size, there is still 2 inches on each side unused.

I can barely see the left edge of the Add tags button and the resultant window to add them.

You could just do what the EBC forum does, all that is on the bottom of the post, above the ME TOO.
