Hey everyone, 

 

Unless you're very new to the community you've likely noticed a few changes to how the forum looks this morning. As we announced yesterday the O2 community has been upgraded! In addition to the new look there are several new features, some requested and a few new ones for good measure. 😄

 

New home page 

 

Starting at the top we have a new integrated header for the community. The new header contains some useful links. On the left side you have a link to the main O2 site.

You then have links to the O2 shop page > O2 help and support page > My O2 and your shop basket.

On the right of these links you will see your community notifications > private messages and your profile picture.

Clicking on your profile picture will bring up a drop down menu which contains the following...

Directly below the header you will find the new community navigation! The community categories are listed here and if you hover over you will see a drop down of the different boards.

The next level down is the community search bar and your latests stats and notifications!

Below this is our new featured content widget. This is similar to Latest News section on the old home page but is in a much more prominent place than before.

Next is the new trending topics section which is a live feed of the most popular conversations happening in real time!

Below to trending topics you will see the familiar Community Activity where you can see the latest topics and filter them by most recent > most viewed > most commented and most liked.

Down at the bottom of the home page you will see a feed that highlights the most recent guides and reviews. If you hit the View All button it will take you to the guides and reviews category.

Finally the familiar community stats can be found at the very bottom of the page.

New private messaging interface

We also have a brand new private message system which will display your message conversations in a threaded view so no more going back and forth between your inbox and outbox. Please note: Only messages exchanged after the upgrade goes live will be in the threaded view.

Solution highlight 

The next new feature to talk about is floated solutions. When a solution is picked on a thread it will be highlighted at the top of the discussion for easy viewing. The solution will still be in it's proper position down the chain of messages. 

 

MartinO2_13-1628153484565.png

 

The new version has an updated text editor box for topics, replies and private messages.

Looks good, apart from the different Fonts would be good if all where one font, and not Times New Roman 🙂

Glad you like the look so far @madasaf1sh! We're still sorting out a few settings and formatting issues. For the fonts clear your cache and that should sort the problem. Please let me know how you get on.

Every post I make appears as an unread post.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

FEEDBACK

Signing in - not a problem and took me to Home Page

 

PROFILE 

- avatar gone [as announced yesterday]; substituted with circular image

- walking elephant image chopped in half; had to delete in personal profile and re-paste

- signature disappeared; had to redo; check; then amend to get it correct

- awards gone - where are they ? can they be re-instated or do I have to wait for promised new banner award

 

OFF-TOPIC 

- experiencing same problem as mentioned by @mm7000gb with posts dating back months/years

- in WRQ thread, images for Thinkers now in column one under each other rather than under text 

 

Some reasonably good ideas, others not so easy to use/understand.

I feel sorry for newbies trying to get their heads round the confusion

Some people see things as they are and ask "Why?"; I dream of things that never were and ask "Why not?"
