New Beta Forum Interface


#1

I like the new interface, but have several issues. Probably just setting.

  • How do you have everthing sent as an Email. I see at the bottom a check box for “Email me replies to this post”, but nothing else.
  • I want to order the posts under any of the tabs by date, but clicking on “Last Post” does not order them properly.
  • Can you access the new forum from outside of Toad Beta?
  • Will we be able to search the old and new forums at the same time in the future?

thanks,

Dave

How do you have everthing sent as an Email. I see at the bottom a check box for “Email me replies to this post”, but nothing else.

On Email, you’ll need to subscribe via the website to get all forum topics by email. You can do that on the right side of this page…

/products/toad-for-oracle/toad_for_oracle_beta_program/f/86.aspx however, it seems that logging into the forum by web site has an issue at the moment.

I want to order the posts under any of the tabs by date, but clicking on “Last Post” does not order them properly.

I think the next build will address your sort by date issue. There are actually two date sorting methods and we are wrapping them both into a single header column (incorrectly).
Next build has sort by “Modified Date” and “Created Date.” Modified date would be the date when the last activity (reply, etc.) has occurred and created date is the date the original message in the thread was created.

Can you access the new forum from outside of Toad Beta?

beta.toadworld.com (login is broken now it seems)

Will we be
able to search the old and new forums at the same time in the future?

No. You need to use Yahoo groups search feature to search old content.

Regarding logging in to the website, here’s the URL:
/login.aspx

If you simply go to beta.toadworld.com today it will give you an “Under Construction” message. You have to use the /login.aspx page for now until we launch
(just a few weeks away!).

Well, it seems that our email system is having fun rewriting hyperlinks… another bug to fix.

Clicking your first link redirected properly for me Daniel, though I don’t understand all the mailjet stuff, or [dot] replacements. Soon enough I’m sure we’ll
have plenty of user references to the url’s, so if it’s to avoid bots, it’s probably a losing battle-

beta.toadworld.com is also loading fine for me (no ‘under construction’ page). Here’s what it loads for me:
