Updates deployed to the Connect production servers as a result of the code sprint that ended 27 May 2014.

User Facing: Desktop

  • Added code to notifications emails so they would properly display images that are embedded by authors in their posts.
  • Retooled forums to support a 'product > subproduct' organization style in addition to the legacy 'product > version' style.
  • Tuned the user interface of the rich-text editor for consistency.
  • Added code to the translation interface so it would, by default, retain the original author and the original publish date when a post is translated by someone other than the author at at some time other than the original posting.
  • Updated the system to send "Welcome to Connect" email in HTML instead of txt.

Beginning June 1, 2014 we will no longer be awarding points for comments posted to the Symantec Connect site-- this includes comments on forum discussions, blogs, and any other kinds of content posted on Symantec Connect. (Comments have previously been awarded at the rate of 1 point per comment.) In addition, the number of points awarded for a verified solution to a forum discussion will increase from 35 points to 50 points. All other points for content will remain the same.

We believe that this creates an incentive for all Symantec Connect users to provide thoughtful, useful feedback on the site. In addition, this will help minimize any "comments for points" behaviors that may be occuring. 

As always, we thank you for your participation on the Connect community.
