New Forum: How's It Working For You?



  • Dear Community,

    So we've had the new forum system for a couple weeks now, and I wanted to know if you were all happy. I know it wasn't great that we gave you something that didn't meet your needs, but hopefully the new system is serving everyone well. (I assume this is the case because no one seemed to complain.)

    We want this space to be a welcoming, fun and useful place to spend your time. If you have thoughts or reactions, please let us know. 

    Best Wishes,
    Mark



  • @mark loving it! Especially the mobile version. Great improvement. I did not have to push the search so far but from what i experienced so far it is also a great improvement.

    I really like the new forum. On my iPhoneSE on Safari the wysywig editor is overlapping the text sometimes.



  • @Mark. I've been away from Izzy for awhile; had a gig that required me to "learn" Qlab. I am slowly getting comfortable with the new forum. Somehow I think I have two passwords. I did the sign-on via my phone and was not fully engaged in the process and may have created this myself. No worries, I will sort it out.

    Just for you to know, the forum and the support/ticketing system have a different login.

  • @Michel Thanks.



  • @mark

    Love the new forum but I miss the "Artistic Practice" section. 



  • @Woland

    @Michel chose another name for it... it's still there though. Maybe Michel can explain.

    Best Wishes,

    The problem in the old forum was, that lots of people posted questions in the artistic practice category, they understood it as that they could ask questions about how people would do things, instead of posting the way they do it. For me the showcase is much more clear, thats the place to show what you have done with Isadora, is it a show or a patch or user actor.

  • LOVE IT PLAIN AND SIMPLE !



  • @Michel Ah, so that's where it went! The name-change makes total sense, I was just looking for it under the old name.



  • I do have to admit that I am curious why bold is Cmd+bitalic is Cmd+i, but underline is Ctrl+u. Also, pressing "Ctrl+u", then typing something, then pressing "Ctrl+u" again does not halt the underlining if you press then spacebar, at least on my machine.

    Not world-shattering, I know, but never the less...

    Also I have no idea how I did this, and cannot seem to reproduce it, but I somehow got two "New Topic" tabs going on. One was blank, one was a post I was working on. Opening the blank one and pressing "Discard" got rid of the "extra" tab, but left other tab intact (thankfully). Am I supposed to be able to have multiple "New Topic" tabs open, or was it a forum bug?

    I tested the keyboard shortcuts: 

    cmd+b and cmd+i (works as soon as I release the cmd key)

    ctrl+b and ctrl+i (works as soon as I release the b or i key)

    cmd+u and ctrl+u (don't work at all)

    One way I found out to get two "new topic/reply" tabs. If you click the small reply under the post you get a reply tab, then if you select the down arrow of the blue Reply button at the bottom of the page and then click reply as topic you get a second tab. Maybe there is a shortcut you accidentally pressed for this to happen.

    Best Michel
