Hi Margarita- You'll be on our beta/upgrade server when it is available... and we'll notify you when that happens, of course. We will still be supporting groups (which is what I think you were referring to). Not planning to drop any features.
Re: Creating Content is Simpler I am really hoping that you all include in this update a way to move a post to add it as a reply to an existing post. With this "simpler" way of posting, I'm forecasting our users will probably post in the wrong spot. (We've got a lot of possible forums and topics and posts.) -- Carol
lot of major updates. very impressive. look forward to accessing the beta site and making an aggressive push to launch my Hoop.la site. I think forum owners are going to see a SIGNIFICANT increase in engagement across their site with the mobile friendly responsive design. That is HUGE! I suspect large community sites using UBB Forum will see an amazing increase in overall utilization. I look forward to being more engaged with Social Strata. This is a high quality update for sure. Congrats.
I'm not sure I understand your question, Gamres. There are no known issues with the ordering of chat posts. I'd suggest submitting a support ticket if you are having an issue, so that we can properly assist you.
Great news Ted, I look forward to seeing how you handle things so I can gather more ideas to use in my own updates Question, in the last few days I updated to windows 10. Have you encountered any issues going with existing RD coding? Or is Windows 10 behaving.. lol
Hi JC- No, we have not seen any issue with Windows 10 so far, though of course there is still much more testing to do. I don't really expect many issues though. The new Edge browser is still the biggest unknown but assuming it is standards-compliant (which I expect it to be), hopefully the issues there are minimal as well (and would likely just be due to bugs in that very-new browser). I'm very excited that Microsoft is finally offering an evergreen browser though... that will be great for...
I've used the latest version of Microsoft Edge on various Hoop.la sites (and Hoo.do) and there are literally no errors in markup or visual differences with Chrome (the browser I use for default). Only thing that you may notice is Microsoft's 'ClearType' technology that's on by default. It tries to smooth out the edges of fonts to offer more readable text, but I don't like it myself. Otherwise I agree with Ted that it's a huge step forward from any version of Internet Explorer.
Hi Lynda- Your site will be set up on our upgrade/beta server around the end of August, assuming current projections hold up. While on that server, you will be able to create new theme(s) and change other settings so you can see what your site looks like on the new codebase. Then, once that "upgrade/beta" period ends, we will start the process of upgrading all live sites to the new codebase (and we will bring over all new themes/settings you set on that beta/upgrade server over automatically...
Re: Responsive Project Update I feel your pain Ted. I'm facing the reworking of 3 sites to be responsive. All I can say is this better not be a fad like previous "new methods" from the past that came and went. LOL That said, it does make sense to be as versatile as possible. Our audience is no longer PC/Mac, it is mobile and beyond. We simply cannot be without a connection to whatever it is we simply must have access to. Anyone remember Mosaic, the good old days. Only one browser.. lol
Agree with you JC - we are now 65% mobile, and climbing every month. The responsive design website we just completed in March has seen a terrific improvement in pages per user, minutes on site and a much lower bounce rate. Right now those metrics are a combination of our responsive website plus our hoop.la community. So those metrics should improve even more once our community is responsive. And yes, I remember Mosaic. And dial up. Neither are pleasant memories.

ONE!.. lol Then Netscape, then it which shall not be named (IE). Chrome, Safari, and on and on.. and don't get me started on Android. It's like computing started all over again. A reverse big bang. LOL
Nice hearing from you, JC! I'm confident in the future of responsive design, though of course techniques and best practices will change over time. But the overall approach is unquestionably solid. From a browser standpoint, the best recent news is that Microsoft's next browser will be evergreen . The biggest handicap to web design has always been having to continue to support IE's archaic versions.

Ted, as a follow up to this question about headers and footers - is this something we can ask for a quote on to have your team make our header and footer responsive for us? I just remember the code conflicts we had to deal with when we tried to do our own code.
