  • Added code that lets users remove themselves from private message threads.
  • Resolved an issue with the "Can you solve these?" block being empty when there were forum posts that needed to be solved.

  • Automated the process of updating the certification and accreditation information stored on Connect.
  • Configured our email system to send outgoing emails using TLS encryption when possible and to only send TLS encrypted emails to certain domains where Symantec has a contractual obligation to encrypt all communication.

Changed the behavior of the search widget so the "Search Users" option is never selected by default.

A little late (& not sure whether to post this in the forum .... yet!)

If you do use the search facility at the top of the page for a user it fails initially as it precedes your search with the string "apachesolr_search/" & then you need to search again in the 'new' search bar.

Thanks for the feedback Andy.

I've created a ticket for this issue and will make sure it gets resolved.
