More information about the new Discussion Forums
As you may be aware, localendar already offers Discussion Boards as part of our Premium subscriptions. This support forum is an example of the all-new Discussion Forums module. The Discussion Forums will eventually replace the existing Discussion Topics.
Will the existing Discussion Topics be going away?
Existing discussion topics will remain, but they will no longer be supported once the new forums are made available to subscribers. All members with access to the "old" discussion forums (Premium Webmaster and above) will automatically receive access to the new forums when they are available. We regret that we will not be able to migrate data from the existing topics to the new forums.
When will I be able to use the new forums?
Soon . We're testing the forums right now, and making final enhancements.
Will feature xxxxx be supported in the new forums?
It's too early to comment on the final feature-set right now. If we don't feel a particular feature is ready yet, we may delay it until a future release.
On my public calendar, I have enabled the button to jump to Discussion Topics. Where will that button go when the new Forums are released?
When the new forums are released, that button will no longer go to the Discussion Topics. It will now go to the Forums. If you still want a link to the old Topics feature, you can add custom HTML in your calendar's footer.
What about support for other languages?
We've made internationalization a major focus for these new boards. You can change your default language under My Profile. If you are aware of any translation errors, please let us know.
We appreciate your involvment as we prepare for the general release of this exciting new offering. If you have any problems or suggestions, please post them to an appropriate thread under the Information and Member Community category.
