If you're looking at this post you must have all noticed that ZK forum has a brand new look!

A number of new features have been enabled in the new ZK forum. One of the main changes is we are now applying Google Search!
This allows users to get more ZK info due to the new forum being more search engine friendly. In addition, there is more member friendly customizations available, including the ability to upload avatars, add a personal signature, and website/blog/link-in accounts to your profile. We hope you like it!

Since we've made a lot of changes on the new forum, we would like to invite any of you to give us some feedback on it. Should any of you encounter any bugs or error messages in this ZK Forum. Please post any odd behavior in this thread with a detailed description of the problem. Your help is greatly appreciated!

We're also hoping that the upcoming ZK Forum enhancement changes will help to enliven the forum.
Please keep checking the site regularly. We’ll continue to make it more user-friendly.

Thank you for your continued support!

The ZK Team

Looks great.

1. Please can you set the 'Unread Posts' number in RED color like the old forum.
2. I can see a delete link right beside the edit link. ?????
If a thread starter deletes the thread after many guys have answered him so the question/starter thread is away.
Or is this from the table relation not possible?


Many Thanks
Stephan

Hi,

Looks good - like the RESTful URLs. I've found one problem however:

In Safari/Mac I'm getting a redirect recursion into the old site when using the root forum URL (the one in ZK menu bar). I've restarted Safari, with no improvement.

Problem does not occur in Safari/Win, Camino, Chrome. I'll try emptying the cache next.

Cheers
David

Yep, clearing the cache fixed the problem.

Looks good, but the red color of 'Unread Posts' count is missing too. (and/or different color, maybe bold font for thread name)

My question, what is the meaning of the different document icons in front of threads?

@terrytornado

We only allow who delete their own post and the first post in a thread will never be deleted.

very good!

i had some suggest :
1. if we can upload an image to explain something,it'll be great.
2. if the codes we've posted can be high lighted, it'll be more readable. (just like this site does: http://www.javaeye.com/topic/483469 ).
3. if there's a link to "topics i've posted" or "topics i've replyed" ,it's more convinent for us to find out the self-related thread.
4. if the user and the administrator can set the status for a thread(open,closed,solved,etc.), it will be useful to see wheather a problem was solved or not. just like the bug trace of sourceforgive does.

cheers!

The new Zorum looks very interesting. My compliment to the developers.

But of course something catched my eye :-)

In IE it is not possible to open a thread in a new window by right clicking. With Firefox it is no problem.

Edit: Usability Request, is it hard to display in the thread overview the creation of the thread? We can already see the last Post, but sometimes the creation of the thread is also "nice to have".

cheers mk

Hi, as I have written here http://www.zkoss.org/forum/listComment/9982 :

it would be great if there would be "last post by: xxx" in the search results.

Thanks

@terrytornado
As you asked, "Please can you set the 'Unread Posts' number in RED color like the old forum."

No one style can fit everyone's need.
If you are using firefox, a firefox plugin "Stylish" can help to customize look and feel of web pages.

Maybe we can define some additional css class in elements, to simplify your own customization.

Also, we may also publish some sample stylish script.

Hope you have fun with ZK :)
