Wow. Was there any announcement that Thwack was going to be altered like this? Let's begin:
1) Now when I go into a forum, I can see all of about 8 discussions because now, I see part of the body of each discussion, instead of just the topics. I've gone through my Preferences but I don't see where this is set (and why should I have to waste time trying to put things back anyway??)
2) Search is far, far worse. Now it defaults to searching Content, instead of the Forums, and when I select Forums to search it tells me there are no results when I know that there are.
3) In the previous version, there was a check box icon in the upper left that showed me when I had updated threads or messages. Now that's gone and I have no idea if I have anything of the sort.
This is only within the first 20 minutes of using the new site. Now I have to spend another hour trying to figure it out. Solarwinds is supposed to be (I thought) about SAVING time.
We walked through these issues over here, folks. Please have a look and see.
Feel free to keep the feedback coming there. The search issue is one we are dealing with at the platform level. It looks like a reindex of the content database is needed.
