And we're live! New community look & feel is here!

You may have noticed that things have changed around here!

We are excited to launch our new look and feel, which uses Cisco’s new design system. This should feel familiar, since it’s the same design system as the Meraki dashboard.

 

The biggest change, functionality-wise, is the left navigation, which is now always visible on the left side, with flyout menus for some navigation items. Note that you can condense the navigation by clicking the hamburger menu just below the community logo.

Another functional change is that the search in the header now always searches the entire community. Previously, if you were in a particular forum or blog, the search would default to that forum or blog. Now it defaults to the entire community, which we have found to be more intuitive behavior.

 

Other than the navigation and the search behavior, the community functionality is the same.

 

We hope you like the new look and feel - though we know a change this big may take some getting used to!

Tell us your thoughts in the comments below. For bug reports or more extensive feedback, please add to the feedback thread.

 


P.S. No, there isn’t Dark Mode - yet! I know you’ll ask. Plans are in the works... stay tuned!

Looks amazing! The search functionality has been wished for! Overall improvements and stuff I didn’t know I wished for 😊 Not that the old community was disliked in any way. Nicely done!

I just tried to edit my reply to a post I started. If I go to edit my original post I can do that, but when I click edit on my reply nothing happens. On other forums, I've seen the behavior when someone replies to your response that response is locked, but in this case, no one has responded as of yet.

I think you can only edit replies for a limited amount of time, like half an hour.

I was trying to make the edit within seconds up to 2 minutes of the post.

@TyShawn That’s strange! We will investigate.

@CarolineS Thanks for looking into it. I just tried to edit a post that I just created and saw the same result. I clicked the dots then Edit Reply and nothing happened once Edit Reply was clicked.

@TyShawn Strange! I'll send you a PM so we can continue to troubleshoot outside this thread.
