Introducing some new forum functionality!

[ Edited ]
13 Replies 616 Views edited 22-06-2012

Overnight we have updated the Lithium software on the forums.  This has bought some minor changes to the layout of the boards.

 

The top level of the forums (language selection) no longer exists, language selection is now actioned using the dropdown menu at the top of the forum.

 

In brief the latest updates are:

* New language selection dropdown at the top of every page

* The PlayStation links that were previously at the top of the page are now in a component in the right side menu (above announcements)

 

*Addition of 'Recent News' side panel at category, board and thread level. This brings you the latest stories from the PlayStation Blog and PlayStation.com

That's nice and pretty, but could the people in charge keep the old "Forum" menu too? It was really pretty useful for Beta Testers, and those that use PlayStation Mobile Beta.

 On the plus side, the Like and Share buttons seem to show properly for me now :)

The old menu no longer exists, I would suggest bookmarking the boards you mentioned for ease of access.

Do you plan on introducing a simple way of accessing the subscribed threads?

These used to be at the bottom of the old main site. I could suggest placing it in the right hand border, and justify the space it already takes up, by adding this. 

 

Drop down menu seems handy enough, just a matter of getting used to. Guess it's just more noticeable for multi-language users :)

Beta testers don't use this forum for an access point any more for news.

You should know that to well. We have our own portal website for use now.

Gives you news about betas and changes that were going on.

 

LR would have sent you the emails about the changes a long time ago.

So that you could bookmark the new site.

Ill PM you the URL.

 

Beta site login gives you the list of betas you have access to.

These beta pages then list their Beta Forum URL.

Has some one been playing with the Font Choice for text again on the Front pages.

Just went a bit smaller again for the topics section...
