Adobe LiveCycle forum is a platform where LiveCycle community meets, learns, and discusses experiences about using LiveCycle. We are committed to provide the best user experience to the community when they are on the forum, and we have taken a step in that direction.
The LiveCycle forum, until sometime ago, comprised of 70 forums and sub-forums. We monitored the forums and found that the unnecessary bulk is making it difficult for the community to manage discussions and participate on the forum. As a result, most of the are inactive as it was unintuitive to drill-down to the correct forum for discussions.
As we understand the importance of a close-knit community, we have optimized the forum structure, so that it is easier for the community to search, post, and participate on the forum. The new forum structure is thin, focused, searchable, and easy to manage.
In its new look, the LiveCycle forum has relatively flat hierarchy, but with a logical grouping of discussions. The streamlined new structure includes seven top-level forums, including one forum with 14 sub-forums. The flat hierarchy relies on the tags for filtering discussions related to a specific area of LiveCycle.
The following table lists the top-level forums with their description.
|LiveCycle modules and development tools||A top-level forum with 14 sub-forums for each LiveCycle module and development tool.|
|LiveCycle installation, configuration, deployment, and administration||A forum for discussing issues related to LiveCycle installation, configuration, and administration. Also, you can discuss issues related to application servers and databases while installing or deploying LiveCycle.|
|LiveCycle Collaboration Services||A dedicated forum for discussing LCCS.|
|Related products – Managed Services, Central Output Server, Production Print etc.||In this forum, you can discuss product that do not form the core of LiveCycle, but are related to the LiveCycle technology.|
|General discussions – features, feedback, training, documentation etc.||This forum is suitable for general discussions about LiveCycle features, learning, and documentation. Also, you can share any tips and tricks, learning experiences, and submit feature requests in this forums.|
|LiveCycle pre-ES (6.x and 7.x) discussions||For everything related to pre-ES versions of LiveCycle.|
|Deprecated modules – Content Services, Mosaic, PDFG 3D, Guides etc.||This is just the right place to talk about deprecated LiveCycle modules.|
As we see it as a striking shift in how you currently interact on the LiveCycle forum, please take a note of the following things:
- If you have bookmarked or following any LiveCycle forum, we recommend that you visit the corresponding forum in the new structure and configure it again as the URL for the forum might have changed.
- The discussion threads are sorted by the last modified date; however, in some cases, the threads prior to streamlining might not appear in the desired sequence. It’s a known technical issue and we are trying to restore the sorting.
- There is no impact on the URLs of individual discussions and you will continue to receive notifications for any updates to the discussions posted by you.
We hope that the streamlined forum will enhance and add value to your interactions with the community. Please visit the forum at http://forums.adobe.com/community/livecycle and let us know your valuable feedback as comments on this blog. We will continue to make improvements to the forum to give the community the engaging and best-in-class user experience.
Thanks for being such a wonderful community of experts!
