You may have noticed that there is a new look and feel to the Connect Blogs. We wanted to give you a brief overview of the new blogs pages and introduce you to some great new features.

Below is an image of the new Blogs overview page.

You can choose from official Symantec blogs or User-contributed blogs, which you can easily contribute to by clicking the "Create a New Blog Entry" button.

Once you choose the blog you're interested in reading, youll find a lot of useful information including information about the blog, the blog author, and any associated Twitter feeds.

We hope you love what you see. We feel like it looks a lot more like a typical "blog" site.  Let us know what you think.

Interesting new feature, the only one thing not really clear is where are all posts in the Community blog. For example in Enpoint Management & Virtualization there are few blogs.

Riva11: There are a ton of posts in the Endpoint Management and Virtualization Community blog. Maybe you didn't realize you can click through to the following page: symantec.com/connect/symantec-blogs/endpoint-management-%2526-virtualization-community-blog

You can then navigate through the more than a year's worth of blog entries.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks Leslie for your reply, I appreciate this restyling,  but let me explain better about how to browse blog contents. For sure there are tons of posts in the Community blog. My comment wa referred how to read these posts.
In this new view the access to these posts is clicking on " Endpoint Management and Virtualization Community blog" located in the right side panel (see example).

P.S.
please check your link , the result is  "The requested page could not be found."

Paolo

The view you're showing in your image above is an "overview" of the most recent blogs. Simply click on the "Endpoint Management and Virtualization Community Blog" and you'll see the rest of the blogs.  Also, the link is working for me including on my test accounts. What browser are you using?

Thanks for your clarification,  about the browser is Mozilla Firefox 3.6 , but the page not found is also using the MS IE 8.

if the apersand in the URL is breaking the link for some users? (We may have to spell out "and" to resolve this issue.)

I know riva11 is one of our Italian friends. I wonder if the language settings in his browser are keeping it from properly recognizing the URL.

I changed my browser language preference to Italian and my language preference on my Connect profile page to be French and the links worked for me.

(Now I need to know remember the difference between Save and Delete in French. If you don't see me again, you'll know why ;)

Its a best practice to have a "Support Contract" with Symantec...
