The site looks different, but I don't see many improvements in navigation.
For me to see the ip monitor forums, I have to do six clicks. Some of the clicks involve filtering out a bunch of posts that the site is sure are "new" but are actually several years old. It's a navigation mess, really.
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that no one tested this migration, or they would have seen what was coming. What's worse is that the site has been in this messed up state for days now and is not fixed.
The site does load faster, so that is a positive.
Re: forum/space home: I don't need all this extra stuff - I just want to get to the forum. Product blog, geek speak, polls, groups, and the "space overview" are useless clutter. I have to click the content tab, then discussion.
I'm aware I can bookmark the forum, but it should not be this difficult to find what I need in the first place.
This software is great for building frustration in your customers, not a community. Might be time to consider dumping jive and going with something easier to navigate.
When are the "new content" posts from 5 years ago going to fall off the list?
