good to go
hope it all runs smoothly.
I have my fingers crossed!
Too big a font.
The font is so much bigger than the old forums, that I'm zooming out one or two ticks with the mouse to feel comfortable on a normal 4:3 monitor. Might be different on a 4" phone, however. Isn't this a 'responsive' site, adapting itself to the screen size? That's a missed chance, with so many people going mobile.
PS. Where's the visual editor? I couldn't add a smiley ...
The font size is CNET.com standard font size.
The new forums are currently not mobile adaptive. However, it is one of the next tasks on our list of "To dos" You are absolutely right many people are already on mobile and.or shifting towards mobile usage. Again this is definitely a high priority for us.
As for the visual editor, another thing on our "to do list", but this implementation is not trivial and will take up some time. For the time being, for emoticons or text edits for bold, italic, etc... you can use these here:

Thanks for the feedback!

That seem to work. Thank you. But quoting doesn't seem to be on the list of BBS codes.
Unless I'm too tired to see it and just missed it?
I know I've been posting lots of rubbish to the new fora this morning, sorry for that but I'm playing with it.
I did a colon-curved-bracket.
I did a colon-curved bracket and that added a smiley for me. I never thought to look for the VE because I'm so used to typing manually.
But you're right, I don't see it.
This really looks good. It seems to be far easier to find the type of things I am interested in.
Go for it!!!
thanku for your tips
Great tips and I’m short on quite a few

Thank you for the kind words!
How to creat a post
But how to creat a post??
Seems too white for a backgrd.
Maybe as someone already posted this maybe geared for mobile appearances. I find the white backgrd. too stark compared to the older format. On a laptop(or larger display) its very noticable, on my netbook not so bad, IMHO.
Otherwise, I find doing anything to improve or update the forums is welcomed, just don't go bonkers in the process.
C|net, The Best New Format
I love it. Especially the larger fonts. It makes reading and leaving a reply so much better. I will most certainly be on cnet a lot more now in looking for answers and leaving posts and for an all around knowledge base. Thanks for the best pages I have seen on most forums. For us older folks out here, its a real eye opener, no pun intended. I would be curious how other members of this site feel about the new pages. Thanks Guys and Girls.
Thank you kileyk82!
You just made my day! And it just started
Have a great week!
I am enjoying the new forums
Thanks for all the hard work!
Lee,Thanks for the updating
The clearer, larger font & spacing is quite an improvement !
Congratulations from a regular 'ould fella' and keep moving on or we lapse into oblivion !!
Nature takes no rest !!!
Thank you John!
I appreciate the feedback, I'm glad you like the larger font!
Samsung forum search
I want to search the Samsung forum for items related to USB drive on smart TV but there is NO search option. Do I have to look through every post to find one about USB? Seems like a BIG error in design.
samsung forum search
The samsung forum has not been migrated to the new platform yet. When it has been migrated, you will be able to search it for any given term.
They can still use the old forum search for Samsung terms.
don't lose the Samsung forums!
Seems half the traffic lately has been to it!!
look at the top of the page to the right of the CNET logo. You should see a "Search Forums" box. Enter your search terms there, and you should get some results. Samsung forum is still in the old forums platform and will be migrated sometime next week. But search should work as I described to you.
Functioning "see all comments" button required
New UI ok but we need a working "See all comments" or "See whole thread" button. Does not work now when getting to a conversation via emailed link.
I posted this point in your feedback window as well just now.
