Very soon we'll embark on upgrading our forum platform and with it the underlying code that marries TechSpot's content management system and the forum. In other words, our entire community software will be changed for good. We are very excited about the vast improvements this will bring right away and on the long term, when we fully realize the new platform's potential.
I will save the full explanation for the actual launch, but in the meantime here are some screenshots and a feature showcase of what's to come. Enjoy!
The forum homepage's new style.
More functional and better looking user profiles.
Forum topic lists -- layout merges perfectly with the rest of the site's design.
User alerts! Get notified when your posts are liked, quoted or replied to, among others.
User profile panel, always at your disposal, across the entire site.
Edit posts in-line, better looking too.
You can watch discussions, get alerts, and (optional) email notifications
More coming soon!
