I don't understand how the forums in Spanish are organized

1. First problem.

If I go to this page

http://adobeforums.adobe.com/index.jspa

scroll down to the "Foros internacionales" button (that's what I see although most of the rest of the page is in English), click on it and then on the "España" button, I'm taken here

http://adobeforums.adobe.com/community/international_forums/espanol

where the first item in the list is two weeks old. There is however a TOP PARTICIPANTS box, at present with two names, one of them mine. And if I open the profile of either, I find a list of fairly recent messages, including some of today. And if I click on the title of one of these messages, I'm taken (for example) here:

http://adobeforums.adobe.com/message/1616675#1616675

and the route is shown as:

> Adobe Forums > International Forums > Foros de usuario a usuario > Spain General Discussion > Discussions

But the route i get if I open any of the messages in the window with only old messages is

> Adobe Forums > International Forums > Foros de usuario a usuario > Discussions

one missing step, perhaps explaining the different result.

2. Second problem.

In none of the two routes I get a list of subforums such as Acrobat, InDesign,..., or even grouped in arbitrary categories as in the existing forums. My impression is that categories got simply lost in the process.

Anyone?

The non-English Forums (except for Japan) will be collapsed into one overall forum in the new system. All of the old content should be there, though.

The test forums are a snapshot of these forums as of about 2 weeks ago. You shouldn't find any imported data there less than two weeks old. But you will see any message that were posted in the new forums since Monday.

In the test system you and Xacir are listed as the top users because you two are the only people who have posted messages there since Monday (when the test forum launched).

But I do see an issue. The Adobe and Macromedia Spanish Forums look like they have not been combined during the import. If you go to http://adobeforums.adobe.com/community/international_forums/espanol you will see a "General Discussions" sub forum listed in the right side column under Soporte. This shouldn't be there. There should only be one level.

I'll get that changed in the importer.

Thanks!

John

Thanks for responding, John.

Do you mean -for example- that we will get just one "espanol" forum, with messages from all ex-Adobe and all ex-MM applications all mixed up and sorted just by date? No subforums of any kind? I hope not, that would be a real mess!

John, you cannot be serious. At least, I hope not. Here you have some thread titles taken from the forums in English:

>Error when opening legitimate documents "Insufficient data for an image"

>Color management question on having separate profiles in one document

>Can't open file due to unexpected file format

Although these are very clear titles within each forum, how could anyone know with which program each one is associated if they were all in the same bag?
