I believe the I have followed the instructions to attach a document to the body of a post request but nothing is being sent out in the files{} port of the request.  I can either get the stream in "data", not visible at all, or visible but no form data. Any help would be appreciated, below is what I have

It looks like andreas posting is in triplicate - I am sure the bureaucrats are very happy - on the homepage

Not sure why...?  Is there really 3 unique posts IDs that are the same or is there a bug in the hoempage display logic that is repeating the items listed?

Here's the screenshot of the sidebar widget "Related conversations":

 

 

The question turn-key export of data for XML-enabled class currently has 2 answers, 0 comments for the post and 1 comment for an answer. I think it would be more informative to display one of these metrics in the widget:

  • Number of answers and comments for post and comments for answers
  • Number of answers and comments for post
  • Number of answers

Instead of the current value of number of comments for post.

Here's something I find a bit awkward. Suppose I'm reading the posts in a group, e.g from https://community.intersystems.com/group/developer-community-feedback

I see an interesting post, so I click into it.

I add a comment to the post.

Now I want to go back to the list of posts in the group, i.e. to https://community.intersystems.com/group/developer-community-feedback but I don't see a link that takes me there. I have to resort to several clicks on the browser back button.

Perhaps it'd help if somewhere on a post's header you gave us the name of the group owning the post. A click on it could take us to the corresponding /group/xxx page.

Option 1:
Groups are renamed "Forums".  They are segregated and have their own sets of tags.  If I'm viewing "Ensemble" and I click "Create a Post", it is posted in that forum.  I must tag the post with one or more tags from that forum, "Business Service", "Production", "DTD", etc.  Tags can be assigned to multiple forums.  I am never prompted to choose a "group"/forum.  It's based on the context I was viewing.

 

Option 2:
Groups and tags are completely removed and replaced with "Topics" and subtopics.  These work just like tags except that the first one chosen is the topic.

We can change to this mode of UI in the Create New Post that I think makes the tag usage easier. There's help text under the window in this screen shot and it will contain instructions on the use of tagging, the benefits and also a link to a standing post to request new tags. I think this method of operation will allow us to add many more tags without making them burdensome to navigate.

Thoughts?

Not quite sure how to connect groups to tags in this UI but that might be the next step.

I received an email notification and the only link was directly to the comment: https://community.intersystems.com/question406316/answer406331

From that page you can see that there is no way to get to the full question itself (unless I'm missing it).  

 

Looking through my subscriptions it looks like I'm literally subscribed to the answer and not the main topic.

Here's the scenario. I write a post, click the Publish button to post it,  but overlook the fact that because I didn't add a tag I'm still on the same page. The pink area highlighting what I forgot to fill in is out of sight at the bottom of the page. I carelessly navigate away (e.g. back button, or DC app tabs). There's no warning, and I've lost what I wrote.

This latest update was a huge stride in making the community usable.  I think you fixed almost all of the major usage gripes I had and it's looking great!

In the recent march 15 update, there are multiple references to "groups". However in the menus, it still references "Communities" (Connect->Communities)

Shouldn't we update the menus to standardize on the word group(since that seems to be the popular/de facto term)?

 

Also I was forced to choose a related topic.  There is no  topic like: "misc", "other", "feedback", "site ui", etc. so I choose online learning

When you click on the My Content icon in the navigation bar you see a page with tabs, two of which are "My Content" and the other is "My Collaborations". The formatting of this content is not very good and is inconsistent between the two.

Questions:

1. How many of you are using these pages?

2. What are you using them for?

3. What information do you expect to see here?

4. How can we improve this?

Should we have a tag cloud on the homepage in place of  partial list of tag shown in the Browse by Tag? 

or at least a better formatted page than the current tagcloud at:
https://community.intersystems.com/tagclouds/chunk/1

This is a very very hard listing of tags to interact with.  It is one giant block of unformatted text.  

Maybe turn this in to a full page tagcloud?  Or a multi-column bulleted list?  

 

Once again I choose the online learning topic for this post as no appropriate tag is available.

With this release we've done a few things with subscriptions

1. Exposed personalization settings so you can control how and when you receive the email subscription notifications. See the image below

2. The ability to selectively subscribe to email notification for content by Tag. At the top of the "Browse by Tag" page there is a new link to Subscribe with Email.

3. Made RSS feeds available for content based on Tag and based on Group. At the top of the "Browse by Tag" and "Browse by Group" pages you will see the RSS link.

4. The ability to subscribe/unsubscribe to individual posts. This is done with the Subscribe/Unsubscribe link that appears on the post listing as well as the post detail page for both Questions and Articles

Since the March 15 update, Related Topic is now a mandatory field. My first post since the update was to this Developer Community Feedback group, and I found it hard to choose an appropriate Related Topic. I ended up picking "Online Learning" for that post, and will use the same for this one too.

When I post, I am now required to select a Releated Topic.

However on the homepage I see "Browse By Tag" and can view all tags at https://community.intersystems.com/tagclouds/chunk/1

 

Shouldn't we use the same naming conventions throughout the Site UI?  Change Related Topic to Tag?

 

Again, I had to choose online learning for the lack of any appropriate tag.
