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

    I really like the new look, but it does not seem possible to reply to a thread, even after logging in.

    That’s odd. After you login and navigate to a thread, you should see a Reply button in two places. There should be one just to the top right of the post itself and one at the bottom right.

    Seems the change resulted in the vanishing of some product support forums and (at least in my case) corrupted user accounts.My (former) userid before the switch now keeps giving the error: “Adobe ID and password do not match” … even when I try to use the “Did you forget your password?” feature.
