    I can see that is definitely a step in the right direction - I'll look at that closer and set it up.

     

    One step in the right direction still leaves a 'pile' to be desired.

     

    Thank you for that.

    You're welcome, Buz.

     

    I did a sort of guide thing to the Quick Navigation controls in the following thread. (It may take a while to load. I hadn't got the hang of saving images as pngs rather than bmps at that stage, so the screenshots are pretty huge in terms of file sizes.)

     

    ASC quick navigation controls

    Then there's the double scroll bar at the front page to ASC .... if you want a community low on the list, be prepared to scroll 2 scroll bars, one right and one left.


    The screen design of this panel sets a new low in this inferior forum implementation.

     

    The prior list of forums was complete, easy to navigate, and concise. We don't need change for changes sake.  Re-implement this design or provided an advanced community list as turingtest2 has done.

     

     

    A conventional list of the discussions.

    What I'm saying is to make turingtest2 official by putting it on the forum site & have apple maintain it.

    That might be possible. The McAfee communities are using a version of Jive SBS (not sure if it's precisely the same version though), and they do that sort of thing:

    Wow, just noticed one other thing that really demonstrates the failures of this redesign; on an iPad the list of communities on the homepage can't be scrolled!  Thats right, you can't access anything past the Mac Mini forum unless you feel like typing the forum you're interested in into the search field. Really Apple, really?

    Here is Adobe's main forum list page:

    I think Adobe is still using the older Jive Clearspace software. (Although I'm not 100 % sure of that.)

     

    Closest thing we've got here at the moment is "Browse > Communities":

     

    browse for r.png

     

    ... which gets you through to:

     

    browse communities large screenshot.png

     

    (The other widgets on the Home pages don't get in the way of that view. Loads a bit quicker than the "Main" homepage or a "Your View" home page too.)

     

    I primarily use that one for quickly re-following the Water Cooler and the Full Host Bar. (I'm one of the folks who keeps losing my follow-ship on them.) When I'm out patrolling non-followed places, it tends to be via "Browse > Discussions" rather than via individual communities.

    Works for me in Safari on iPad1.

     

    Be sure you don't "separate" your two fingers during the scroll.  I found the iPad will interpret that as the "page scroll" or a zoom, and so will move the whole page.  If that happens, you need to remove your fingers from the screen and try again.  (IOW, if during the two finger scroll, your fingers start spreading apart, the iPad thinks you want to zoom.  So be sure that your two fingers "stay together".)
