i bookmarked some posts in old forums, bookmarks dont work anymore, but i figured i could just use the ID to get the link in archive forums:

e.g. old post

i thought it may help other who bookmark a lot, as well :)

Oh, another thing.

It is impossible to reply to Brians blog. Silverstripe throws a nasty error.. ;-)

One small thing - the new Forums are great, but it would be awesome if you could get straight here from Ie, a 'login to the forum' box on the home page.

Helps make everyone aware up-front that the forum exists too. At the moment it's a little hidden.

This new design is funky as hell. Well done to the designer.

1. Extra Categories
2. Thread titles in the title meta (Google is now my Silverstripe Q&A)

No one can accuse the SS team of ignoring community suggestions.


Edit: One pedantic thing, the "Help" menu item is highlighted whilst the forum is currently open.

Looks great and very clean and slick, but did you know the "Reply" and "Subscribe" buttons look broken on FF3. They are not vertically aligned correctly. Looks like a float problem.

EDIT: Attached a screenshot

EDIT 2: There is also a noticeable color difference from the gray in the logo and the gray below it and when you go to hover it from the bottom it ".org" to "Home" flickers a few times (looks like if you hover the very bottom of the logo image where the two grays meet) and it looks like gray from the logo gets longer.
