It takes time to accept changes but I'm not a fan of the new look/feel
When the page opened from my Google search I literally thought I was on a generic site that had screen scrapped the Answers pages.
Please reassess. This is not great UX.
@ppablo, since we cannot comment on the announcement, it looks like a discussion started here.
The first issue breaks the usability of the site, the second is just embarrassing.
Also, the auto-suggest function is too aggressive in changing the search term.
"AMBER_RAW" searches for "Amber"
"BUCKETDIR" searches for "BUCKETING"
I would also expect that no valid Splunk search command would ever return "Did you mean:"
If I search for nomv, I don't want to search for "none". If I search for fillnull, I don't want to search for "willfully".
I can forgive the style issues, but there are still a lot of usability and content issues to work out.
I also found that you can't preview a new post without adding tags. If it is required, that makes sense before posting, but not for a preview.
I've also had issues with ghost code samples if the code block is accidentally selected and dragged, but I don't know if that is just an issue with my browser (Chrome 83.0.4103.116) . I also couldn't find a way to highlight code inline.
Code samples don't provide SPL as a language - spooky!
Officially, no. In the announcement that they might break things, they only request emails for urgent issues. This was the closest post I found to list routine issues that aren't urgent. I know there are also complaints about the new layout, fonts, etc., but I'm trying to focus on the content/capability first.
When I reply to a message, I don't need to include a tag.
When I edit that reply, I had to include a tag, even though the original didn't have a tag.
I created this reply without a tag, and this edit doesn't have a tag. So it isn't always required. In the other instance when I had the issue, I was the author of the original message. Maybe that's the issue.
After the change, we cannot add inline code blocks like before. Those code blocks are still visible in other posts, and can be added to new posts, but they are rejected when submitted. It now takes much more time to post when discussing any code.
Maybe I just need to use `backticks`, even though it doesn't show in the preview.
This is the source HTML for the portion of the post.
<code>"prefix : (?<status_code>\d+)"</code>
And the error I receive when I try to include it in this post.
Ugh! The threading is non-existent. This makes the site totally unusable. This can be done with Khoros. Take a look at Atlassian's community site ... also running on Khoros. Their's is easy to see the threading. Please fix this.
I guess it's sorta better, but there is so much wasted white space that it is still hard to see the threading. The threaded comments take up so much screen real estate that all you see is a couple comments at a time which makes the threading hard to visually pick up. Still not great.
I guess it can only trust people who have been doing this for a long time.
And the way they treat people who have responded to them is terrible.
What does this feedback end up being?
You need to put it back in.
I've thought about my response quite a bit, and I think that's why they accepted it.
Yes! These are really big issues.
I was looking for an obscure error this morning and cannot find the posts that Google finds because they are no longer available.
I will likely need to open more support tickets for all of the questions that I used to be able to find answers to from the amazing community until this has been resolved.
Hi al all,
I agree with the first impression of the new look: the old one was smarter than this!
In addition I don't understand what's the algorythm of translation of Karma points: I had 26500 Karma Points in Answers and now I have 779 Karma Points, I was the N° 13 All Time and now I'm the N° 30!
At the end, I didn't find any communication point, in other words, how can I ask something (like the above question) to the Community management?
I agree with these statements.
With all of the existing answers it is very hard to find nifty search queries as they are lost in a sea of white space.
I just went back to answers from something I was looking at last week. It took a bit of digging to find the query that was provided down in the comments section.
Would have been nice if all the existing data was either left untouched on the old system or put "code" tags around the queries so they stand out.
