Re: New Forum Look.

I miss the ability to see at a glance which forums have new content. In the previous interface, there was a red jewel icon flagging threads and forums with content new since I last viewed them.

I would like to get that back.

The newsgroup is somewhat broken. All messages are apparently HTML
formatted, but not marked as such (i.e., Content-Type is still
text/plain), making everything a pain to read.

This is fixed already.

This feature is broken in this version we migrated to but fixed in a
newer one. We're going to upgrade as soon as we can.


Thanks for your feedback.

well, there's one good thing though.

RSS now includes whole message, which means I'll probably do most of my thread reading from google reader from now on !

Not really. The Content-Type is indeed now given as text/html but that
doesn't help if you use a newsreader that doesn't handle text/html and
falls back to rendering the message body as text/plain instead.

Suggestions to use a 'better' newsreader will be ignored (HTML !=
better :)) Personally, I use the NNTP interface precisely because I
don't want HTML. I'd much prefer a fix that strips any HTML markup from
the body content.

If newsgroup readers do indeed want (or at least don't mind) HTML posts
then can you please consider creating multipart/mixed messages and
supplying a text/plain part in addition to the text/html part?

Eugene,

Thanks for the information.

Just now I was looking for the "Mark all messages read" control but could not find it. Am I just not looking in the right place, or is that feature gone? If it's the latter, can that be reinstated, too?

This relates to what I mentioned earlier. The read tracking is not
working now but should be once we upgrade to the latest version of
Clearspace.

This is such a huge step backwards. It's totally unbelievable.
It looks nice, but it feels bad.
Not being able to see what has changed since the last time and to mark all threads read makes those forums very hard to use.
Also the fact that I cannot browse through all posts of any category in the IDEA forums is another drawback.

Up till now I used to browse through all new forum posts related to IDEA, read those that might be interesting to me and mark all IDEA threads as read. On the next visit I would clearly see which threads are new or to which threads new posts have been added.

Those features are major features and now they are gone. In my opinion this new version of the forums should never have been roled out without them.

Oh let me wake up tomorrow and find out that this was only a nightmare.

+1 with all said before.

But what I miss the most is the search feature which is no more relevant. Yesterday, it returned nothing from forums, this morning I have some results but still less than Google.

It seems forums (at least) have not been totally indexed.

Dmitry,
This is definitely not fixed. I'm reading the forums with Thunderbird,
and I'm getting unreadable stuff like this (marked as text/plain):

Hey Andrei,

you have sql functionality in version 8.0. Did you give it a try? Of course it's not as extensive as from this plugin, but still, quite promising.
But I agree, I also like my plugin more... :) No offence to the IJ team by that. Overall quality of the IntelliJ IDEA product was the main reason for starting this plugin in the first place.

Back to your question, I will provide at some point in time a version 8.0 compatible version. I estimate it somewhere mid of February 2009. Let's hope I can easily solve the conflict with the builtin SQL functionality. Because this is currently what's holding me from doing that.
Still, until a compatible version comes out, you can use in parallel a 7.0 version with DBN on it. Have you considered that?

Regards,
Dan

Hi Eugene,

It is still a problem. I see this unreadable mess in the message titled
"Re: Recognizing Velocity user directives" from Alexey Chmutov from a
few moments ago:

Velocity
user directives are not supported at the moment. Unfortunately, I don't see any reasonable work
around for unmatched "red
" #ends
But we can support user directives in some minor IDEA release, in 8.2.x for example.

You're right, we also noticed. Investigating...

This is a mess. XML fragments posted from NNTP are simply dropped, editing in the web
interface is dog slow and it also messes up (pasted) XML code which you don't notice at
first because there's no more preview functionality - probably because this stupid WYSIWYG
editor thinks that's not required any more. That's not funny at all.
