Update: We are now done - please let us know what you think in the comments section!
As many of you may be aware, the TechNet Blogs run on the Telligent Community platform.
It's a great product, but we're a little out of date in terms of their releases.
So, on December 13th, at 10:00 pm PST, we will commence an update to the blogs platform. This update will take approximately 14 hours.
During this time, Technet Blogs will be in read-only mode. That means that there will be no new posts and that readers will be unable to post new comments.
I apologize for the temporary inconvenience, but this short term pain will result in a better blogging platform for everyone!
I'll update this post when we're back up!
Seems like we may back up. I'm seeing new comments.
On 12/13 the Technet blogs got an update.
a. there's funky stuff in the view section that looks like 'social links' that aren't working. I don't see it on the page per se, but it sure is in my RSS reader.
b. in the main feed view, you've post page 1, page 2 ability as it only has the ability to click on more - which pages the page longer and longer
c. In the main feed view, comments now show in it. It was not like this before. http://blogs.technet.com/
Btw what I see in my rss reader is
// // (user_display_name) likes this;, wholikesothertwotext:'(user_display_name) and 1 other likes this....... and more wording like that.
ooh and in this view - http://blogs.technet.com/ the blogs now sort based on the date of the comment on them. So I just popped this blog post to the top of the list merely by posting a comment on here.
Hey Susan - what Reader are you using to consume RSS?
