Adobe Forums go through facelift

Last Sunday, Adobe flipped the switch on the brand new user forums. Here are some of the new highlights:

  • Integration of Adobe ID for true single sign on to all Forums
  • Consolidation of Macromedia and Adobe Forums onto one new system.
  • Updated look and feel, more consistent with other forum systems
  • Email participation, including starting a new discussion and alerts
  • RSS feeds for many parts of the forum (topics, users, announcements, etc.)
  • Improved moderation capabilities (hosts can delete inappropriate content)
  • Rich text options: inline images and videos, file attachments, code samples
  • Improved search capabilities:
    • Wildcard searches (Multiple or single character)
    • Fuzzy Search (search for foam also retrieves roams)
    • Proximity, weighting, date range, specific user
