The new design is great. But why are the old forums read-only? It seems like a lot of relevant conversations have stopped dead as a result, and answers to questions posted just a couple of months ago will never appear, making simple issues look like neglected and unsolved mysteries.
I just tried adding the forum RSS feed to my iGoogle homepage (Standard RSS reader)
It displays and updates fine, but you have relative paths in your links, so it is impossible to actually click on a topic link and have it take you to the SS forums.
E.G. This thread url is http://silverstripe.org/releases-and-announcements/show/1. However in the reader, links are actually /releases-and-announcements/show/1.
So in this instance, when I click on a forum post link, I get taken to http://www.google.co.nz/releases-and-announcements/show/1.
Surely not right. I have 6 other RSS feeds that don't exhibit the same problem.
