New forum design

Hi, I'm exploring the new community pages design and have a first question. When writing a new post or a reply, the former forum software was able to change the font, color and size. But now there is nothing like this. When posting let's say command output or something similar, it makes sense to select a font like COURIER NEW, how to do this now? EDIT: Now I can see the edit related menu above the text box.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: New forum design

   My old bookmarks seemed to take me to the right new places, but
there's some odd clutter.  On these:

http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-288/post-type/thread
http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-280/post-type/thread
http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-117/post-type/thread
http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-118/post-type/thread
(and the related: http://community.hpe.com/t5/x/ct-p/itrc-xxx pages)

Under the big "Operating Systems" heading, there's a pull-down-menu
sub-heading for "SUB-CATEGORY", and a "FORUM" sub-heading for "NonStop
OS".

   These make sense on a page, like, say:

http://community.hpe.com/t5/Operating-Systems/ct-p/operating_systems

But, if I've already chosen an OS, then this big heading (with its
menus/links) is a big waste of space.   Also, on the
http://community.hpe.com/t5/x/ct-p/itrc-xxx pages, there's an
OS-specific sub-heading, but on the "All Topics" pages, the big
"Operating Systems" heading is there, but not the OS-specific
sub-heading, so only a little gray fine print under the big heading
identifies which "All Topics" page it is.  (And, as before, the HTML
"title" tags are all "All Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Community", so my (Firefox) browser tabs convey no useful information.)

   The big "Operating Systems" heading (with its menus/links), I claim,
has no place on any OS-specific page, and the (should-be-big)
OS-specific heading should appear on every OS-specific page.

Right, that's the purpose of the bread crumbs at the top.

 

Also in this text composing window, the font color is light gray and hard to read.  I shouldn't have to change the default color to enter text.

 

One thing about the recentpostspage, they don't have any indication of newness.

And if you use message vs thread, they repeat the same text, for each post:

http://community.hpe.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-288/post-type/message

 

Also at the bottom of these screen is the standard HPE boiler plate with the contact links.

Get rid of the double spacing!

Re: New forum design

Hi,

 

Is it possible to search about only one product? For example I want to search a content only about UFT. 

Search box whic is located at the right top of page, searches in everywhere. I don't want it.

 

Display only related results of a product.

Next to the search box is a Search Granularity box.  Change the value from Community to Board.
(I've already reported the change in default should be fixed.)

   Today's annoyance:  In, for example:

      http://community.hpe.com/t5/x/x/m-p/6809767

what passes for a heading looks like the following (some of which is not
actually text?):

      Community Home / .../ System Administration / rsync script to send
      email after completion or fai...

   "Community Home", the _least_ important part, is big, black, and
bold.  The remainder is small, gray, and incomplete.  Looking at that,
how can I tell whether I was looking at an HP-UX forum or a Linux forum?
